Overview

When Microsoft introduced Windows 2000, the most important change was the inclusion of Active Directory. With many great benefits, it continues to be a huge headache for network and system administrators to design, implement and support. The first edition of this book, O'Reilly's best-selling Windows 2000 Active Directory, eased their pain considerably. Now titled Active Directory, 2nd Edition, this book provides system and network administrators, IT professionals, technical project managers, and programmers with a clear, detailed look at Active Directory for both Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003.The upgraded Active Directory that ships with Windows Server 2003 has over 100 new and enhanced features and once again, O'Reilly has the answers to puzzling questions. While Microsoft's documentation serves as an important reference, Active Directory, 2nd Edition is a guide to help the curious (and weary) understand the big picture. In addition to the technical details for implementing Active Directory, several new and significantly enhanced chapters describe the numerous features that have been updated or added in Windows Server 2003 along with coverage of new programmatic interfaces that are available to manage it. After reading the book you will be familiar with the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), multi-master replication, Domain Name System (DNS), Group Policy, and the Active Directory Schema, among many other topics.Authors Robbie Allen and Alistair G. Lowe-Norris are experienced veterans with real-world experience. Robbie is a Senior Systems Architect in the Advanced Services Technology Group at Cisco Systems. He was instrumental in the deployment and automation of Active Directory, DNS and DHCP at Cisco, and is now working on network automation tools. Alistair is an enterprise program manager for Microsoft U.K. and previously worked for Leicester University as the project manager and technical lead of the Rapid Deployment Program for Windows 2000.Active Directory, 2nd Edition will guide you through the maze of concepts, design issues and scripting options enabling you to get the most out of your deployment.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Active Directory, 3rd Edition is an outstanding real-world resource for anyone who wants to make AD work in the real world. Many thousands of administrators, architects, and developers already swear by this book: Now it’s been fully updated through Windows Server 2003 R2.

If you’re just starting out with AD, this book will give you a confident understanding of all the fundamentals: objects, structures, naming, schema, site topology, replication, DNS, profiles, group policy, and more. Next, it introduces current best practices for AD infrastructure design to maximize control, performance, and reliability. From namespaces and security to backups, it’s covered -- along with practical guidance on upgrading from older versions of AD.

The book really shines when it comes to time-saving scripting. You’ll learn how to automate searches, create users and groups, manage Microsoft Exchange-related tasks, control shares, administer printers, tweak DNS configurations, and much more. You’ll also discover the immense power available through WMI and the .NET System.DirectoryServices namespace.

While AD for Windows Server 2003 is more "evolutionary" than "revolutionary," over 100 features have been introduced or improved -- including significant new features in R2. This book covers every significant enhancement.

Notably, there’s a full chapter on Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM), Microsoft’s long-awaited "Active Directory Lite." ADAM provides a standalone LDAP service without complex DNS and FRS requirements, Group Policy, Kerberos, and other complexities. Using it, you can directory-enable applications you might not want to integrate with your domain-based Active Directory -- and this book covers all you need to get started.

Bottom line, if you’re running AD, this book can help you reduce your risks, improve your efficiency, optimize performance -- and get more of the business value you’re paying for. Bill Camarda, from the April 2006 Read Only
