Chapter 1: Tools and Techniques for Deploying Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional

Introduction

Just a few years ago no one could have foreseen the impact that the personal computer would have on the working lives of so many people. Today the modern PC is almost as ubiquitous, if not as reliable, as the pen. Idling on the desk of millions of office workers around the world is a tireless instrument that extends and facilitates our ability to deliver work. In an effort to tap the capabilities of these marvelous tools, the majority of PCs run a version of the Microsoft operating system family.

In response to the evolving world of technology, businesses have sought to adopt new operating systems in the swiftest and most economical manner possible. The Windows 2000 product group represents the largest, most technically advanced body of work undertaken by the most successful software company in the world. It is considered by many to be the single most important milestone in the evolutionary development of the Windows family. By providing a computing platform that offers stability, high productivity, and compatibility, Microsoft is hoping to extend its software presence even further. Windows 2000 includes a multitude of new features and additions, several of which address current concerns and issues with Windows NT 4.0, Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows 98 SE (to simplify the naming scheme we will use Windows 9x when referring to Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows 98 SE). Other features, such as Active Directory, extend the scope of computing into new and exciting territory.

As the complexity of operating systems has increased, so has the requirement tostrategically deploy the operating system within the business. When Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 9x were released, they included basic tools to facilitate their deployment and adoption. These tools, while adequate, had several shortcomings that hampered effective distribution. Businesses of all sizes quickly realized the benefit of developing operating system deployment strategies, but there was still room for considerable improvement. With Windows 2000, Microsoft has provided a host of new and improved facilities for deployment.

One of the goals of the Windows 2000 design team was to ensure that it was the easiest, most efficient, and least expensive Microsoft operating system to deploy within the enterprise. The common cry of the network manager is that the expense of deploying a new operating system is exhorbitant. The requirement for skills and resources of a deployment project often outstrips supply. Even on the rare occasion when resourcing and budgetary requirements can be ignored, the complexity of deployment tools and techniques often proves problematic. Using the Windows 2000-specific deployment tools and techniques, it is possible to put an end to the network manager's lament-at least, for the time being!

An Introduction to Deployment Planning After all the technical detail that is involved in justifying an operating system migration, the project planning stages are often overlooked. It is essential to draw up a comprehensive deployment plan to ensure the success of the project-something that we will look into in greater detail in Chapter 8, "Developing a Deployment Plan for Windows 2000."

Each business has a unique environment that influences and directs the creation and growth of a project plan. Many businesses have a well-defined project management methodology that incorporates certain variances in business processes in an attempt to leverage them as strengths. What can be established, regardless of the diversity of companies, are the common denominators to all Windows 2000 Professional deployment plans.

Assuming the common denominators listed below, what should the project be asking itself?

Project definition

  • What should the scope and nature of the rollout be?
  • Who should get Windows 2000 Professional?
  • Why are we deploying Windows 2000 Professional?
