Chapter 7. Exam Overview

Microsoft Windows 2000 Server is one of four Windows 2000 operating systems. Windows 2000 Professional, covered in Part I, is a client operating system that replaces Windows NT Workstation. Windows 2000 Advanced Server and Datacenter Server are scaled-up versions of Windows 2000 Server.

Microsoft’s MCP Exam 70-215, Installing, Configuring, and Administering Microsoft Windows 2000 Server , will measure your ability to administer Windows 2000 Server primarily as a member server in an Active Directory environment. You will also need to be familiar with using Windows 2000 Server as a file, application, print, and web server.

Windows 2000 is often used a client/server environment. It is much easier to understand a server’s functions if you are familiar with the client’s needs. I would recommend that you read Part I, before reading this chapter. We have arranged the parts of this book in the order that we would recommend you take the tests.
