Product description

If you're among those looking for practical hands-on support, help is here with "Active Directory Cookbook, Second Edition", a unique problem-solving guide that offers quick answers for Active Directory and updated for Window Server 2003 SP1 and R2 versions. The book contains hundreds of step-by-step solutions for both common and uncommon problems that you're likely to encounter with Active Directory on a daily basis - including recipes to deal with the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), ADAM, multi-master replication, Domain Name System (DNS), Group Policy, the Active Directory Schema, and many other features. Author Robbie Allen, a Technical Leader at Cisco Systems, MVP for Directory Services, and co-author of "Active Directory, Third Edition" and Laura E. Hunter, MVP for Windows Server-Networking and author of several books, have based this collection of troubleshooting recipes on their own experience, along with input from Windows administrators. Each recipe includes a discussion explaining how and why the solution works, so you can adapt the problem-solving techniques to similar situations. This best selling book provides solutions to over 300 problems commonly encountered when deploying, administering, and automating Active Directory to manage users in Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003. The recipes include: creating domains and trusts; renaming a domain controller; finding users whose passwords are about to expire; applying a security filter to group policy objects; checking for potential replication problems; restricting hosts from performing LDAP queries; and, viewing DNS server performance statistics. This Cookbook is a perfect companion to "Active Directory, Third Edition", the tutorial that experts hail as the best source for understanding Microsoft's directory service. While "Active Directory" provides the big picture, "Active Directory Cookbook" gives you quick solutions you need to cope with day-to-day dilemmas. Together, these books supply the knowledge and tools so you can get the most out of "Active Directory" to manage users, groups, computers, domains, organizational units, and security policies on your network.
