PREFACE:

Preface

Unless you have been completely removed from the computing world during the past two years, you have no doubt heard a lot about Windows 2000 Server. Windows 2000 Server, previously named Windows NT 5.0, is Microsoft's next generation of server software. Some of the things you have heard during Microsoft's development of this new operating system are true—some are not—and the rumors that have followed its development have been many.

This book is designed to be your companion. You may have installed Windows 2000 Server and decided you need a little extra help in getting it to play the way you want it to, or perhaps you are still staring at that installation CD, afraid of what the new operating system may do to your server.

As the title suggests, this book helps you configure the various services and functions of Windows 2000 Server, as well as find your way around the new interface. I address every major configuration topic in this book. Some of them are easy and some are not, but this book is designed to help you get your system up and running as quickly as possible. Although you can upgrade Windows NT to Windows 2000 Server, the new operating system is much more than an upgrade, and Windows 2000 Server functions very differently than Windows NT does. In other words, you have a learning curve to go through, but hopefully this book will make that learning curve much easier.

What You Should Know First

This book is not a beginner's book, but you don't have to have five degrees in computer science either. In this book, I assume that you are familiar with Windows NT Server 4.0 and have worked with its various servicesand functions. I also assume you have a fundamental command of networking technologies and protocols.

However, if you are somewhat new to server software and Microsoft networking, you can still use this book and you will learn a lot as you do. I have tried to discuss and explain everything simply so you can get the information you need to make your server behave in the way you want.

What's in the Book

This book includes major topics and issues concerning the configuration of Windows 2000 Server. Some of the chapters may appear to be basic, but this operating system is significantly different from Windows NT 4.0, and you will find that most components of the system work somewhat differently.

This book focuses on the local operating system, but it also explains the configuration options for the local machine's place in a complex network. Microsoft's domain structure and networking approach is different with the release of Windows 2000 Server, so you may also benefit from reading a book about Windows 2000 networking as well.

The following bulleted list tells you what you can expect to see in each chapter:

  • n Chapter 1, Overview of Windows 2000 Server, points out the new features and enhancements you can expect to see in Windows 2000 Server.
  • Chapter 2, Installing Windows 2000 Server, walks you through the software installation and points out some important pre-installation actions.
  • Chapter 3, A Tour Around the Interface, gives you a chance to explore the new interface in Windows 2000 Server.
  • Chapter 4, Configuring and Managing Hardware, shows you how to set up hardware devices on your system.
  • Chapter 5, Disk Management, explores the new disk management features and configuration options in Windows 2000 Server.
  • Chapter 6, Interface and Systems Settings, explores the configuration of the interface and system settings, such as memory and Control Panel.
  • Chapter 7, The Registry and Backup Operations, shows you how to use registry tools and the new Windows 2000 Backup utility.
  • Chapter 8, Remote and Removable Storage, examines the new remote and removable storage features available in Windows 2000 Server.
  • Chapter 9, Configuring the Active Directory, explores the configuration of the Active Directory, the new, powerful directory service in Windows 2000.
  • Chapter 10, Configuring Network Protocols, shows you how to install and configure standard network protocols, such as TCP/IP, NWLink, and others.
  • Chapter 11, Installing and Configuring DHCP, examines the use and configuration of DHCP for Windows 2000 networks.
  • Chapter 12, Configuring DNS, explores the functionality of Dynamic DNS in relation to the Active Directory.
  • Chapter 13, Configuring WINS, discusses the purpose of WINS in Windows 2000 networks and shows you how to implement WINS in Windows 2000 Server.
  • Chapter 14, Configuring Routing and Remote Access, explores the configuration and functionality of RAS and RRAS in Windows 2000 Server.
  • Chapter 15, Connecting with Apple and Novell Systems, shows you how to connect with Macintosh and Netware clients and servers.
  • Chapter 16, Windows 2000 Security, introduces the new security features in Windows 2000 Server, such as Kerberos, EFS, and Certificate Services.
  • Chapter 17, IP Security, examines the functionality of IP Security, how it works, and how to use it in your network.
  • Chapter 18, Configuring User, Computer, and Group Accounts, shows you how to use the Active Directory and configure and manage network accounts.
  • Chapter 19, Configure Profiles and Policies, discusses the use and configuration of profiles and policies in Windows 2000.
  • Chapter 20, Managing Shared Resources, shows you how to manage and secure shared resources, including the configuration of Distributed File System.
  • Chapter 21, Additional Client Technologies, shows you how to use new client management technologies, such as Intellimirror, on your network.
  • Chapter 22, Printing, explores the configuration of print devices and the new print features in Windows 2000.
  • Chapter 23, Auditing, shows you how auditing can be a powerful tool for system administrators.

    Quick Information

    I bought this title, along with a few other Windows 2000 Server books, and I have enjoyed this one. Lots of steps and very easy to read. I'd say this is a good one to use if you need to get your hands all over Windows 2000 Server fast.

    Provided alot of how to, but little of what to do.

    I found this book very good on the topic of what tools are available and how to use them. However this book was equally disappointing by avoiding the issues and lacked the structure needed to configure the Advanced Server 2000.
