Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now updated for Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista, this practical, pocket-sized reference delivers ready answers for using Windows command-line tools to manage multiple clients and servers. It’s packed with hundreds of examples that show you how to run, use, schedule, and script Windows commands, support tools, and Resource Kit tools—without touching the GUI. Written by a well-known author of more than two dozen computer books—and featuring easy-to-read tables, lists, and step-by step instructions—this POCKET CONSULTANT delivers fast, accurate information on the spot.

Book News Annotation:

This pocket (5.5x8") guide for Windows administrators features step-by-step instructions, b&w screenshots, quick-reference tables, and checklists for managing Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 from the command line. The book concentrates on daily administration procedures, frequently used tasks, and documented examples, and is organized by job-related tasks rather than by Windows features. Sections cover command line fundamentals, systems administration using the command line, file system and disk administration, active directory administration, and network administration. The book assumes that readers already have Windows installed, and so does not cover installation and architecture. Readers should have basic networking skills and a basic understanding of Windows. Stanek has written other books on computing. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
