This practical reference guide offers hundreds of useful tasks for managing Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003, Microsoft's latest and greatest server. Through concise, on-the-job solutions to common problems, Windows Server Cookbook for Windows Server 2003 & Windows 2000 is certain to save you hours of time searching for answers.

Now, instead of dredging reams of Microsoft documentation or browsing its unstructured knowledge base to figure out a particular issue--such as how to compare registry values between two hosts--you can simply reference the index of Windows Server Cookbook for Windows Server 2003 & Windows 2000. From there, you'll be directed to the exact trouble-shooting recipe they need.

As the newest title in O'Reilly's popular Cookbook series, this book covers a wide range of issues that you are likely to face in your daily management of the Windows Server operating system. This includes how to deal with:

  • files
  • event logs
  • DNS
  • DHCP
  • security
  • the registry
  • backup/restore
One of the book's key benefits is the presentation of solutions in three different recipe formats. Depending on preference, you can solve most problems with the graphical user interface, the command line, or by using scripts. Where appropriate, all three solutions are presented for each recipe in this book. Each recipe also includes a detailed discussion that explains how and why it works.

Windows Server Cookbook for Windows Server 2003 & Windows 2000 is written for all levels of system administrators on Windows servers. If you're a relatively new user with only a rudimentary understanding of the job, the book can open your eyes to the many possibilities that await. And if you're an advanced user, it can serve as a useful reference and memory-jogger.
