Intended for system administrators with a general knowledge of Windows 2000 or Windows XP/.NET, this reference covers all main system tools and program methods used for routine Active Directory administration and troubleshooting. Information important for understanding the Active Directory service architecture—LDAP protocol, DNS interoperation, and Active Directory concepts—is discussed in detail along with methods of performing common administrative tasks such as creating directory objects, audit, and backing up. This guide addresses troubleshooting problems that occur after deploying Windows .NET domains and system tools used for solving such problems. Also covered are Active Directory Service Interfaces with annotated listings of ready-to-use scripts that illustrate programming principles needed to help nonprogrammers learn the main ADSI concepts to begin their own scripts.
Exploiting Microsoft's Windows Management Instrumentation in Mission-Critical Computing Infrastructures
Author: Alain Lissoir
Understanding WMI Scripting explains to Windows and Exchange Administrators how they can use the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) scriptable technology available in these products to ease their day-to-day management tasks. Under Windows.NET and Exchange 2000 (SP2), Microsoft is making solid enhancements in WMI. This will dramatically extend the scripting and manageability capabilities of Windows and Exchange. Illustrated with more than three hundred samples, the book links practical problems encountered by administrators to applicable scriptable solutions. Lissoir focuses not on MI programming aspects for developers but on how administrators can use what is available in Windows and Exchange for their admin work. WMI is a very important topic under Windows.NET and Exchange 2000 (SP2), so this book provides real added value to Windows/Exchange administrators. Although Exchange relies on Windows, no other book combines coverage of Windows and Exchange. · Fine tune management of Windows servers · Achieve better system management and customize critical operations · Access hundreds of usable scripts in book and downloadable from web
