Book News Annotation:

This guide to Windows Small Business Server (SBS) 2008 explains the software package so that consultants can quickly learn about the product, and supplies reference material for ongoing support after initial installation. The book's six sections cover installation and set up, managing network and web configuration, managing e-mail, client connectivity, security and system health, and two of the newer technologies incorporated into SBS 2008, IPv6 and PowerShell. One element that is not contained in the book is a discussion of the use of virtualization technology in and around an SBS 2008 installation. The book's rather dense, not-so-friendly layout includes b&w screenshots and step-by-step instructions. Neale is a Microsoft Windows SBS MVP.

Taking readers inside the inner workings of SBS as no other book does, this text covers planning, installation, configuration, security, management and administration, and troubleshooting. This edition provides unique coverage of interoperability with Mac systems.

About the Author

Eriq Oliver Neale is the owner of EON Consulting (http://www.eonconsulting.net), a small business technology consulting practice in Denton, Texas, and a partner in Third Tier (http://www.thirdtier.net), an organization that provides escalation support for IT organizations around the globe. He is an internationally-recognized Small Business Server expert, and has been awarded the Most Valuable Professional designation for Small Business Server since 2005. Eriq was the lead author for Microsoft Small Business Server 2003 Unleashed, and his other writing credits include contributions to The Internet Unleashed 1997, Windows 2000 Server System Administrator’s Handbook, E-mail Virus Protection Handbook, and several books in both the 2000 and 2003 series MCSE exam preparation series.


Eriq is a 20+-year veteran in the IT industry, getting his start with DOS 2.1 and Novell 1.1. Over the course of his career, he has worked with various operating platforms (Microsoft, Apple, Novell, UNIX, Linux, VAX, AS/400), and he has focused on providing integration solutions for differing platforms. He has worked for small organizations, as well as Fortune 500 companies. Eriq’s introduction to the Small Business Server product line came in a one-year stint supporting the product for Microsoft Product Support and Services in Las Colinas, Texas. Since then, he has been focusing on providing solutions to make running and supporting SBS easier.


In addition to writing, Eriq maintains two blogs, one technical (http://simultaneouspancakes.com/Lessons) and one business-focused (http://msmvps.com/blogs/onq), and hosts a technology-focused weekly Internet radio program for small business owners (http://www.eoncall.com). He speaks regularly at industry conferences and user groups on a variety of SBS-related topics.


Eriq is a native Texan and makes his permanent residence in Denton. He is married, and he and his wife have a menagerie of animals for children. When not writing, blogging, or speaking about technology, he can be found attending baseball and women’s college basketball games, writing and recording music, or reading mysteries.


Amy Babinchak has officially been in IT since 1994 and unofficially for 10 years prior. Like many IT professionals, she started out helping people around the office and in the college dorm to build and use computers. Her knowledge grew from MS-DOS and the early PC applications into a full-time career, when she made the switch from professional environmentalist working from grant to grant into the world of enterprise IT support. In her career, she has supported MS-DOS, Windows 3.11, Novell, and Mac OS, all the way on up to the current versions. Having started her career in enterprise support, Amy noticed that many small businesses were languishing with poorly conceived networks and lack of consistent support. Excessive travel coerced her into opening her own business in 2000.


Amy is now the President of Harbor Computer Services (http://www.harborcomputerservices.net) to serve small businesses in the metro Detroit area and a Managing Partner in Third Tier (http://www.thirdtier.net), which provides escalation support services to IT organizations around the world. Harbor Computer Services has been recognized as a Small Business Specialist (SBSC). Amy actively participates in two local user groups and several online newsgroups. She has spoken at local and international conferences on SBS technical and security topics, including SMB Nation and SMB Summit. Amy is a Forefront MVP and has contributed her technical writing skills to Microsoft SBS 2003 Unleashed and various web sites. When these things don’t keep her busy enough, she provides remote support services for small business consultants using ISA. Amy firmly believes in maintaining work-life balance and has designed her company around this concept. She practices what she preaches by spending as much time as possible on her sailboat, cruising northern Lake Huron.


Steve Banks is a speaker, author, and consultant focusing on the small business space and Windows Small Business Server. With more than 17 years in computer technology fields, he is also the founder of the Puget Sound Small Business Server User Group and president of Banks Consulting Northwest Inc. Steve has collaborated with Microsoft, Forbes, and Hewlett-Packard on white papers and case studies focusing on TechNet, Small Business Server 2000, and Windows Small Business Server 2003.


Timothy Truman Barrett is cleverly disguised as a mild-mannered geek. He actually is a happily married man with his lovely wife of 18 years, Dayna. They have two wonderful daughters, Stephanie and Lauren, who are also lovely. And Tim hates monkeys. A lot. Obsessed with building things from Lincoln Logs and Tinker Toys almost from birth, Tim finally got his first computer at age 15--an old used TRS-80 Model I. It had no instructions or manuals, but by trial and error, he figured out how to make it work. He also learned BASIC and spent the entire summer bugging his mother and six siblings by constantly showing them all the “cool” stuff he could do with it. After studying computer aided drafting (CAD) and physics at Louisville Technical Institute, he went to work in the healthcare industry and then moved into information technology. As a veritable jack-of-all-trades, Tim has worked with just about everything: sewing machines, table saws, X-ray machines, IBM mainframes, phone systems, servers, PCs, and the occasional backhoe.


At age 39, Tim is currently a Microsoft Certified Professional, a Microsoft Small Business Specialist, Microsoft SBS MVP, and the founder of the Kentucky Small Business Server User Group (KYSBSUG). His motto is, “No Geek Left Behind.” He also has strong religious values as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses.


Susan Bradley blogs at www.sbsdiva.com (http://www.sbsdiva.com) and writes on patch management issues for Brian Livingston’s Windows Secrets newsletter. In addition to being one of the writers on this book and Windows Small Business Server 2003 Unleashed with Eriq Neale, she has been a contributing author to the Windows Server 2008 Security Resource Kit, and she has been a contributing author for Harry Brelsford’s SBS 2003 Best Practices book.

Jeff Middleton is well recognized worldwide in the Microsoft Small Business Server (SBS) community, known as a speaker, author, advisor, and technical community leader. Microsoft has awarded him each year since 1999 with the prestigious Small Business Server Most Valuable Professional recognition. Based upon 20 years of experience as a consultant and system integrator in small business and vertical market applications, he’s operated his own business located in New Orleans since 1990. Jeff’s name is now synonymous with Swing Migration, the worldwide SMB consultant’s choice of methodology for SBS Server replacement. He founded SBSmigration.com in 2004, providing a technical mentor and training product as a project consultant to consultants. His work is both published and cited in books and trade journals.


As an expert in disaster recovery, domain migration, and a full-range of topics on the SBS and Windows platforms, Jeff travels constantly as a popular speaker. He has presented at conferences internationally including the Microsoft Partner Program, Tech Ed, SMBTN, ITA, and SMB Nation, as well as lending his support in person as a guest speaker to more than 50 local IT Pro groups of all sizes in North America, Australia, and Europe. Starting in 2007, he launched the SBSmigration.com IT Pro Conference held annually during May in New Orleans, offering a unique discussion forum for experts in SMB business and technology.

He plans deployments and migrations, conducts audits, and troubleshoots Exchange and SBS problems around the world, all remotely from his office in Olympia, WA.
