Pages 22 and 23. Fig 2-3 and 2-4 have been swapped. THe captions do not match the figure, but the caption title matches the body text. Pages 40 and 41 Table 2-6, 2-7 and 2-8. The top titles do not line up with the sub-titles making the context of the tables misleading. I.E. each title should line up with the 2 sub title columns below

Note from the Author or Editor:
Replace the caption on Figure 2-3 with "Figure 2-3. The mycorp.com forest with the othercorp.comtree added". Replace the caption on Figure 2-4 with "Figure 2-4. Transitive trusts illustrated" For Tables 2-6 thru 2-8, reference this blog post for the correct layout: http://briandesmond.com/blog/active-directory-group-nesting-reference/

Note from the Author or Editor:
Replace "However, the finance user needs seven special attributes, while the marketing user needs three." with: "However, the finance user needs three special attributes, while the marketing user needs seven."

Last paragraph

The book refers to RFC 2052 for SRV records. This RFC is experimental and has been replaced by RFC 2782 that is also referenced in the Microsoft documentation (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd197499%28WS.10%29.aspx).

Note from the Author or Editor:
This appears to be correct. Replace the reference to RFC2052 in the last paragraph on page 124 with a reference to RFC2782. Update the corresponding link to http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2782

Note from the Author or Editor:
The caption for the DC in Figure 7-2 should read "Windows 2008 RWDC".
