Overview

The purpose of Windows 2000 User Management is to provide a comprehensive, practical guide to managing users and their desktop environments with Windows 2000. The book is divided into three sections. The first is an overview of the new capabilities Windows 2000 offers for user and resource management, plus an overview of the Active Directory, domain models, and security mechanism available. The next section covers all aspects of user management-creation of users, bulk tools, migrations, from other directory structures, groups, and planning for efficient use of groups. The final section deals with managing the user's environment through the use of profiles, group policy objects, and the functions Microsoft has grouped and marketed as Intellimirror-client-side caching, single instance storage, remote boot and MSI.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Windows 2000 User Management is like spending a week as an apprentice to the world's best Windows 2000 sysadmin. In just 240 pages, Lori Sanders shares a career's worth of techniques — and wisdom.

What other Windows 2000 guide will tell you why you don't want to delete that user who left the company? (He might come back as a consultant in six months — or it'll take you a week to duplicate all his permissions for his replacement.) Maybe you don't want to set up your Active Directory hierarchy to match your org chart (In most companies, your administrative needs don't precisely map to your formal organizational structure.)

Sanders covers virtually all of Microsoft's widely-scattered TCO and security features authentication, resource protection, Active Directory, user accounts, group management, user and group profiles, IntelliMirror, directory management, offline folders, and much more. There's coverage of managing user accounts in mixed NetWare/Windows 2000 environments; coping with downlevel client systems; using software distribution policies to centrally assign and publish applications; even custom ADSI scripts for creating and maintaining users. Windows 2000 User Management is also spiced with plenty of real-world "war stories" from one sysadmin to another. Read this book, and you'll feel like you've been managing Windows 2000 all your life.
