Format: Paperback
This bundled set of books contains just about everything it is possible to know about Windows Server 2003. Well, maybe not everything, but everything you can include in four thousand six hundred and fifty pages, yes, 4650 pages.

In one slipcase, there are eight separate Microsoft manuals:

Windows Internals (4th Edition)

Windows Group Policy guide

Windows Security Resource Kit (2nd Edition)

Windows Server 2003 Performance Guide

Windows Server 2003 Troubleshooting Guide

Windows Registry Guide (2nd Edition)

Windows Administrator's Automation Toolkit

Windows Server 2003 Tools and Digital Resources (on CD)

The CD contains more material than the rest of the books put together including (guaranteed to be true as it contains all of the manuals just listed in eBook form),

More than 300 esential tools and utilities,

And collections of Technical References on:

Active Director

Core Operating System

Group Policy

High Availability and Scalability

Networking Collection

Storage Technologies

Windows Security

It would be pointless to talk about the contents of each book here as they are already described under their individual titles. What you get in the bundle is: lower price than when purchased individually, extra material on the CD, and a cardboard slipcase to keep them in.

Worth every penny. This is a massive collection of harder to find resources to help you in your job as a Windows Server 2003 Systems Administrator. Time saving tools, tips, scripts and other resources will make this purchase pay for itself. The included CD ROM has all the material plus additional books in ebook format, so you can take it with you as a ready reference. If you are studying MCSA/MCSE, this resource will help you understand the technology as well as provide you with better tools so that you can apply your skills more efficiently.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Windows Server 2003 PKI and Certificate Security book will demystify PKI and certificate based security implementations for you. It will be very helpful to anyone who wants to learn what PKI can do for them or needs to know the specifics of how to implement it in their network for many uses from large networks to the small office. For many the thought of PKI, intimidates them. It should not as it really is not that difficult and can improve your security tremendously over traditional password based authentication and allow use of strong encryption and digital signing [proof of entity and integrity]. PKI is used to generate public and private keypairs for use in applications such as L2TP VPN, IPSEC, 802.1X authentication for wireless and wired networks, EFS file encryption, application signing, secure email encryption and signing, SSL website security, and smart cards.

The book starts out with the basic concepts of PKI and the use of symmetric and asymmetric encrytpion and how they work together in PKI. It also explains digital signiatures - the other big use for certificates/private keys. It is written to be very understandable and the user or admin that has little understanding of PKI should have no problem learing the content and implemeting it. It does assume a basic understanding of Active Directory for Enterprise Certificate Authority use and also covers stand alone Certificate Authority. The book is also written so that you can refer to indivudual chapters such as the excellent chapter on how to implement 802.1X wireless if you do not need to know other material covered.

PKI hierarchy is well covered whether you need to install a single CA, levels of CA's in your network, or even how to setup cross trusts to other CA hierarchies for full trust or conditional trust.

Format: Paperback
I am learning about Windows Server for the first time and bought this set as a comprehensive guide. It is not for the novice or the faint hearted. It is tough to follow and goes in to great depth at times. The books are uneven in standard with some just taking you through the wizards and others assuming you can program. Useful to have but requires a lot of effort from the reader. You will need to work hard at it.

Format: Paperback
Very in depth - covers multiple subjects and has pleanty of examples and frameworks to help you with your migration.

Also does an excellent job stressing the need to pilot and test - with one volume dedicated to setting up a test environment and using it to plan your deployment.

If you are looking at Windows Server 2003, rolling out Active Directory or just managing a windows environment I highly recommend this referece set.

Format: Paperback
Brian Komar tackles, what I've seen countless other authors refer to as a difficult to understand subject matter. It appearantly took a whole team at Microsoft to explain it to him, but it looks like he got it right. Of the many books I've read that address certificates and PKI this is the only one I've seen that presents a complete picture, where I didn't walk away wondering... but how does this part of it work, or why did they do that this way.

I would Highly recomend this book to any one who works with Microsoft Server 2003. This book is a MUST READ for all systems engineers especially if you implement
