Working with Microsoft's network directory service for the first time can be a headache for system and network administrators, IT professionals, technical project managers, and programmers alike. This authoritative guide is meant to relieve that pain. Instead of going through the graphical user interface screen by screen, O'Reilly's bestselling Active Directory tells you how to design, manage, and maintain a small, medium, or enterprise Active Directory infrastructure.

Fully updated to cover Active Directory for Windows Server 2003 SP1 and R2, this third edition is full of important updates and corrections. It's perfect for all Active Directory administrators, whether you manage a single server or a global multinational with thousands of servers.

Active Directory, 3rd Edition is divided into three parts. Part I introduces much of how Active Directory works, giving you a thorough grounding in its concepts. Some of the topics include Active Directory replication, the schema, application partitions, group policies, and interaction with DNS. Part II details the issues around properly designing the directory infrastructure. Topics include designing the namespace, creating a site topology, designing group policies for locking down client settings, auditing, permissions, backup and recovery, and a look at Microsoft's future direction with Directory Services. Part III covers how to create and manipulate users, groups, printers, and other objects that you may need in your everyday management of Active Directory.

If you want a book that lays bare the design and management of an enterprise or departmental Active Directory, then look no further. Active Directory, 3rd Edition will quickly earn its place among the books you don't want to be without.

Comments about oreilly Active Directory, 3rd Edition:

If you are a beginner on Active Directory and want to learn everything about Design and Implementation of Windows Server Active Directory, this is the book.

The book explains with full details, every aspect of Active Directory, since NT till 2003 R2.

It shows side-by-side, what's changed since NT and even how to migrate from earlier versions to 2003 R2 (and what are the benefits).

This third edition was reviewed and updated by Joe Richards, a MVP of Directory Services. It is a must read for Active Directory experts!

Comments about oreilly Active Directory, 3rd Edition:

My knowledge of the infrastructure is in the area of UNIX / Linux and was needing to get a book to learn about the Microsoft world, mainly from Active Directory, then I bought this book.

The book deals very well from the basics to the most advanced in a simple and practical way. The contents of GPO's is also very good.

I recommend!
