The Perfect Reference for the Multitasked SysAdmin

The Microsoft Windows Vista operating system offers several changes and improvements over its predecessors. It not only brings a new and redesigned interface, but also improves on many administrative utilities and management consoles. It also enhances the system’s reliability, performance, and problem-solving tools. As administrators, Vista will sometimes look like its predecessor, Windows XP, and at other times, look like an all-new operating system. How to Cheat will help you get Vista up and running as quickly and safely as possible and provide you with a solid idea of all the important changes and improvements the new Microsoft Vista OS has to offer.

In the book you will:

* Automate Windows Vista Installation

See how Windows installations can be automated for large-scale deployments using the Windows Automated Installation Kit (WAIK).

* Install and Maintain Devices

Windows Vista contains device drivers for hundreds of PnP devices, and the Device Manager snap-in is the main utility on a local computer for managing them.

* Customize Appearances, Taskbars, and Toolbars

See how to use a personalization page, use the taskbar, and customize desktop themes.

* Manage File System Formats, Partitions, and Volumes

Learn how Windows Vista supports basic and dynamic volumes and two partition styles: MBR and GPT.

* Increase File System Performance

Learn how using tools such as disk defragging, cluster size adjustment, removing short filename support, and compression can help with performance.

* Administer via Remote

Remote Desktop and Windows Firewall can help administrators perform administrative tasks on remote computers.

* Managing Services

The Services utility allows you to view the status of services, as well as to disable nonessential services.

* Configure TCP/IP in Vista

See how to configure TCP/IP (both IPv4 and IPv6) via the user interface or via the netsh command.

* See What’s New with Wireless in Vista

Understand wireless security and learn how to install a wireless network.

* Optimize Windows Startup, the Hard Disk, and More

Optimize memory, applications, and the network connection, and see how to monitor performance.
