About the Book

At the heart of your Windows network is Active Directory, the control center for administration, security, and other core management functions. If you're new to Active Directory administration—or if you find yourself unexpectedly thrust into that role—you'll need to get up to speed fast.

Learn Active Directory Management in a Month of Lunches is a hands-on tutorial designed for IT pros new to Active Directory. Without assuming previous administration experience, the book starts by walking you through the most important day-to-day system management tasks. You'll learn how to administer AD both from the GUI tools built into Windows and by using PowerShell at the command line. Along the way, you'll touch on best practices for managing user access, setting group policies, automating backups, and more.

This book assumes no prior experience with Active Directory or Windows administration. Examples are based in Windows Server 2012

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.
