This authoritative guide is meant to relieve that pain. Instead of going through the graphical user interface screen by screen, O'Reilly's bestselling "Active Directory" tells you how to design, manage, and maintain a small, medium, or enterprise Active Directory infrastructure. Fully updated to cover Active Directory for Windows Server 2003 SP1 and R2, this third edition is full of important updates and corrections. It's perfect for all Active Directory administrators, whether you manage a single server or a global multinational with thousands of servers. "Active Directory, 3rd Edition" is divided into three parts. Part I introduces much of how Active Directory works, giving you a thorough grounding in its concepts. Some of the topics include Active Directory replication, the schema, application partitions, group policies, and interaction with DNS. Part II details the issues around properly designing the directory infrastructure. Topics include designing the namespace, creating a site topology, designing group policies for locking down client settings, auditing, permissions, backup and recovery, and a look at Microsoft's future direction with Directory Services. Part III covers how to create and manipulate users, groups, printers, and other objects that you may need in your everyday management of Active Directory. If you want a book that lays bare the design and management of an enterprise or departmental Active Directory, then look no further. "Active Directory, 3rd Edition" will quickly earn its place among the books you don't want to be without.Read Less

Dense, but Useful
This was a great resource on Active Directory (but what would you expect, it's from O'Reilly!). It covers a lot of ground and I will admit that I don't completely understand all of it yet, but partially that's because the project I bought it for is just underway and I haven't been able to try out most of the things that are talked about in the book. I found it a good introduction to Active Directory, but you must be willing to take in a lot of information. If you're looking just for a high-level overview without much detail, this is not the book for you.
