Book News Annotation:

This 5.5x8" pocket guide for readers with basic networking skills and a basic understanding of Windows concentrates on daily administration procedures and frequently performed tasks. Material is organized by job-related tasks rather than by features, with sections on implementing Active Directory, managing Active Directory infrastructure, and maintaining and recovering Active Directory. Quick-reference features of the guide include tables of facts, checklists, step-by-step instructions illustrated with b&w screenshots, cross-references, an expanded table of contents, and cautions and tips. The guide is for Windows and network administrators, support staff who maintain Windows networks, accomplished users who have some administrator responsibilities, and administrators transferring from other platforms. Stanek has written many books on computing. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
