"Build your network the right way with expert advice! This book provides real-world help in implementing Windows Server 2008 with attention to the use of virtualization solutions covering all you need to know in one well-written guide to success." --Bob Kelly, AppDeploy.com and Technical Reviewer

Plan, set up, and administer a powerful, scalable Microsoft Windows Server 2008 environment. Featuring detailed explanations, best practices, pragmatic checklists, and real-world implementation examples, this comprehensive resource shows you how to deploy, manage, and secure WS08 on enterprise networks of all sizes.

Microsoft Windows Server 2008: The Complete Reference explains how to develop migration plans and transition to WS08, configure AD and Internet services, handle print and Web servers, and work with resource pools and network delegation rights. You'll get full coverage of the latest virtualization techniques, OU strategies, remote administration features, and storage maintenance utilities. Find out how to tune performance, deploy bulletproof security, create reliable system backups, and design failsafe disaster recovery plans. You'll also learn to rely on resource pools and virtual service offerings to create the very best Windows infrastructure implementation.
