Administration and Security

  1. Create an assortment of users on a Windows 2000 Professional computer and assign each to a number of groups.

  2. Create a new group and assign several users as members.

  3. Log on using the default Administrator and Guest accounts and note the differences in available resources. (You may need to enable the Guest account.)

  4. Set various options in the Account Policy, Security Options, and Audit Policy snap-ins and verify that they are enforced.

  5. Experiment with shared file and NTFS security settings by restricting a user’s access to various folders. Log on as that user and verify that access is restricted.

  6. Use the Shared Folders snap-in to monitor users and shares.

  7. Install a printer (or just a printer driver if you have no printer) and share it. Verify that it can be accessed across the network. Send several print jobs to the printer, and open the printer’s window to manage the jobs.
