Now that Windows 2000's Active Directory is in the marketplace, The true challenges associated with implementing and managing it have become far clearer. Drawing upon extensive real-world experience, this book identifies those challenges -- and presents today's best solutions. The authors begin by introducing key Active Directory concepts and presenting crucial background for successful planning and implementation. Understand The role of TCP/IP, WINS, DHCP, DNS, and LDAP in the Active Directory environment; walk through planning physical and logical structure; then master user and group management, access control, and group policies. Learn how to secure Active Directory; then maximize its performance in far-flung networks through the effective use of replication. Understand The Active Directory data model and schema, gaining insight for extending Active Directory to accommodate custom directory-enabled applications and administration tools. The book also includes two full chapters on automating administration through scripting.
