A few words are probably in order before you start wading through the vast amount of material in this chapter. The topics in this chapter are organized alphabetically according to major themes of Windows Server 2003 (WS2003) administration. For example, if you want to find out about Active Directory and how to manage it, you’d begin by turning to Active Directory. Each topic begins with a description of basic concepts, followed by a description of the tools (if any) used to administer the feature, instructions on how to perform common or important administrative tasks, and notes providing extra insight on the topic. Many of the longer topics in this chapter follow this fourfold outline of concepts, tools, tasks, and notes, and knowing this will help you find the information you are looking for more quickly.
