This book would be ideal for users who've never shared a folder before, or have never worked in an admin position (all kinds of elementary info on how to "communicate" with co-workers...aka "filler" material). If you're in this category, then this book would be ideal for you. If you're familiar with NT 4 and want to look under the hood to see the new features and how they work, save your money.
Before I began the installation, I bought this book to help me with some of the new features, and hopefully avoid time-consuming mistakes during configuration. Well, I got even more than I bargained for with this book. The team of admins. who wrote this obviously spen countless hours setting up and breaking down 2000 Server, and they've done an incredible job of conveying their experience in this book. I was particulary impressed by the their ability to identify the more problematic or difficult topics and then go into greater detail or provide examples and exercises. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who is responsible for a major Windows 2000 rollout.
Also provided a much better understanding of groups/accounts/user policies than the beta doc on these subjects. Definitely recommend.
As examples, the backup utility is described. Unfortunately, the creation and maintenance of media pools is not discussed. One cannot use backup effectively (maybe not at all) unless the media pools and media are created and managed in advance of performing a backup.
As a second example, the group policy discussion tempts you about creating an install package for software but never shows you how.
This book will be one that I will use after exhausting other more reliable sources of information when I want an alternative view of Windows 2000 Server architecture and administration.
Not a keeper.
The authors do a very good job in demystifing Active directory, and kind of gloss over everything else. Is AD an important part of Win2k? Do bears live in the woods? Yes it is important, but you still have to deal with TCP/IP and security too.
Fortunately for the publishers, and us, you can also buy a Win2K stup book, Security book, etc, etc.
Which one do you need?
