Excellent place to start with Active Directory
on 13 March 2002
This book is an excellent place to start if you know little or nothing about MS Active Directory. Another review says the scripting section is quite large, which is true.
I found most of chapters invaluable, as it covers much of the stuff Microsoft assumes you already know, such as how to design your DNS and AD structure, how to Migrate/Integrate from/with Windows NT. Also touches on Exchange2000.
This is not really a reference book, more a chapter-by-chapter read. This is not a critisism as I retained much of the information the book contains.
Buy this book if you know little or nothing about MS Active Directory, and wish to know how to go about designing your AD network and how it will affect your existing environment. Also, if you are a late starter to AD and Windows 2000 Server this book is for you.
The only reason I gave it four stars was because once it had served it's purpose, I moved on and would probably not read it again. Do what I did , and pass it on.
