Also, the cover says there is a web site for additional support, the web site is not online any longer.
"There's more than one way to skin a cat", as the old saying goes.
Everything, and more, that can be done using the graphical, mouse-driven, interfaces provided by Windows, can be accomplished by using the command-line. What's more, these tasks can get scripted and be automated!
This book covers the basics of the command-line and how to go about writing batch files (or scripts).
After these fundamentals are covered, commands in various areas of system, domain and network administration are discussed. From configuring and using the task-scheduler, to performance, to managing disks, to AD administration, to network trouble-shooting, one is ready to tackle any administrative task from the command line.
The book also contains a very handy Appendix for those MS-DOS old-timers amongst us. The Appendix covers the MS-DOS commands no longer supported in Windows XP and those not supported in Windows 2003.
A final note is that this book was written with Windows XP and Windows 2003 in mind.
