Item description for Configuring Windows 2000 WITHOUT Active Directory by Carol Bailey...

Eliminate the hassles of Active Directory - install Windows 2000 without it!
Windows 2000 is undoubtedly a great product. In one year after its release, Microsoft have sold have sold 10 million licenses. System administrators are praising its impressive abilities to coordinate Internet, intranet, extranets, and management applications creating a complete technical infrastructure. However, there has been a noticeable amount of organizations that are avoiding one of the most talked about features of Windows 2000 - Active Directory. The industry buzz is that Active Directory (although a great product) is a burden to implement and install and is not compatible with non Windows products like Solaris, NetWare and Linux.
Configuring Windows 2000 WITHOUT Active Directory is a complete guide to installation and configuration of Windows 2000 (without Active Directory) for system administrators and network consultants. This book details not only the new features and functions of Windows 2000 but also how to integrate several features with existing Windows NT4 domains. The book does not cover the Active Directory function of Windows 2000.

There is nothing like this book available, yet every Windows 2000 mail list, magazine and online forum shouts for his sort of coverage!


Outline Review
In Configuring Windows 2000 Without Active Directory, Carol Bailey makes a persuasive argument that her title procedure isn't the logical equivalent of making a banana split without fruit. Declining to use the primary new feature of Windows 2000 removes a thick layer of complexity from Windows 2000, she writes, and makes it much easier to integrate Windows 2000 (with its nice user interface, great hardware support, and enhanced software compatibility) into a network that's made up mainly of machines running Windows NT or a Unix variant. Plus, she continues, it's always good policy to think twice before implementing any company's first version of anything as complex and mission critical as an enterprise directory scheme.

After taking a chapter or two to explore reasons why Windows 2000 sans Active Directory might be a good idea, Bailey launches into a feature-by-feature exploration of Windows 2000's new features and how to configure them in environments in which Active Directory Services are not available. Her documentation of many features--power management on portable computers, for example--wouldn't have anything to do with Active Directory in any case, but even these sections explain their subjects well. You'll find them especially handy if you manage an organization's inventory of computers, as the explanations frequently take that angle. Frequently asked questions sections at the end of each chapter make great reading and may inform you of features and techniques of which you weren't aware. --David Wall

Topics covered: How to configure Windows 2000 Server and Professional in environments (especially centrally managed ones) in which Active Directory has not been implemented.

Reviews - What do customers think about Configuring Windows 2000 WITHOUT Active Directory?

Implementing Win 2000 technolgies in the real world  Nov 19, 2001
This book is about implementing the new technologies of Win 2000 in the real world. The author's exposure and experience in the industry makes this book full of tips in practical implementation. Despite being a Win 2000 MCSE myself, I am enjoying and immensely benefiting reading this book as I go by its pages.

This one sails you through executing the new and difficult-to-implement technologies of Win 2000 like IPSec, NAT, DNS, Certificates services, Terminal services etc. through its nice walkthrough(s). Even basics like MMC have been explained in great detail. Such detail work e.g. devoting 63 pages to IPSec definitely helps concept building.

In summary, an excellent book for the dollars you pay. I hope the author soon attempts a book on Configuring Win 2000 with Active Directory: I for one will keenly look forward to it.
