Correction To Table 5.5 On page 227, Table 5.5 contains incorrect information. Please replace the table with the following table:Parameters:ValueDescription/Target:{Computer | User}Specifies that only User or only Computer policy settings are refreshed. By default, both User and Computer policy settings are refreshed. /Force Reapplies all policy settings. By default, only policy settings that have changed are applied. /Wait:{value} Sets the number of seconds to wait for policy processing to finish. The default is 600 seconds. The value '0' means not to wait. The value '-1' means to wait indefinitely. When the time limit is exceeded, the command prompt returns, but policy processing continues. /LogoffCauses a logoff after the Group Policy settings have been refreshed. This is required for those Group Policy client-side extensions that do not process policy on a background refresh cycle but do process policy when a user logs on. Examples include user-targeted Software Installation and Folder Redirection. This option has no effect if there are no extensions called that require a logoff. /BootCauses a reboot after the Group Policy settings are refreshed. This is required for those Group Policy client-side extensions that do not process policy on a background refresh cycle but do process policy at computer startup. Examples include computer-targeted Software Installation. This option has no effect if there are no extensions called that require a reboot. /Sync Causes the next foreground policy application to be done synchronously. Foreground policy applications occur at computer boot and user logon. You can specify this for the user, computer or both using the /Target parameter. The /Force and /Wait parameters will be ignored if specified.

Windows 2000 Administration Tools Pack Not Supported On Windows XP On page 817, under "Administrative Tools", it states that the Windows 2000 Administration Tools Pack (adminpak.msi) can be used on Windows XP. This is incorrect. The Windows 2000 version of the Administration Tools Pack is not supported on Windows XP. A Windows XP compatible version of the Administration Tools Pack will not be available in Windows XP until the next version of Windows 2000 server ships. Change: "Domain administrators use administrative tools to create Active Directory objects and containers on a domain controller. Users can create Active Directory objects from a Windows XP Professional-based client if they have sufficient permissions and the Windows 2000 Administration Tools has been installed locally. The tools are available on the Windows 2000 Server operating system CD. For more information about installing Windows 2000 Administration Tools, see Windows 2000 Server Help. For more information about Active Directory objects, see "Active Directory Logical Structure" in the Distributed Systems Guide of the Windows 2000 Server Resource Kit." To: "This will not be available in Windows XP until the next version of Windows 2000 server ships. Until then, you can use the Remote Desktop feature to connect to a Windows 2000 server running Terminal Services and the Windows 2000 Administration Tools Pack to remotely manage these servers. The Windows 2000 version of the Administration Tools Pack is not supported on Windows XP."Microsoft Press is committed to providing informative and accurate books.
