      Comments about oreilly Active Directory, 5th Edition:

      This book is great as both a reference and to learn more about Active Directory. I've had some experience with AD, but not the depth of experience that the book goes in to. I highly recommend this book to be able to focus on different aspects of AD as a reference point and then to be able to read through the book to learn about designing, deploying, and running AD.

        Comments about oreilly Active Directory, 5th Edition:

        This book taught me a lot about how directory services work on the inside, and has enabled me to become a foremost authority on it at work.

        I highly recommend it to anyone who has to work with Active Directory, ADUC, and even powershell to process requests with AD.
