Reviews - What do customers think about Windows 2000 Server System Administration Handbook (Syngress)?
LAME! May 5, 2006
I'm sorry if this seems a bit ignorant, but this book is SO LAME! If you already work as a windows admin, you should know everything in this book already. Yes, the book is huge, but the font is about 25. Its ridiculous, the thing reminds me of a 6th graders text book, the font is so big. Its a decent book if your trying to learn, or your an entry level admin needing a reference. I do feel a little ripped off; based on the font size (obviously).
An Overview, not a how to guide Jun 3, 2000
If you are thinking of buying this book as a "How to Setup Win2k Server" manual, think again.
The authors do a very good job in demystifing Active directory, and kind of gloss over everything else. Is AD an important part of Win2k? Do bears live in the woods? Yes it is important, but you still have to deal with TCP/IP and security too.
Fortunately for the publishers, and us, you can also buy a Win2K stup book, Security book, etc, etc.
Which one do you need?
All talk with little action Apr 26, 2000
I have worked with NT for about 4 years. I bought this book because it had many reviews and most of them where good. I figured the couple of bad reviews where people who just like to complain. I buy many books and like most of them. But this book was the biggest waste of money I have come across. This book is definately for beginners who want to setup Users and Groups. It talks about what Windows 2000 Server can do, but shows very little about how to do it. I agree with the earlier review, WHERE'S THE BEEF? Don't waste your money.
Use this book to install and configure Windows 2000 Server Mar 14, 2000
I have been administering a fairly large NT network for some time, and I was very excited by the prospect of migrating to Windows 2000. In particular, I was eager to implement Windows' new security protocols as well as to start using Active Directory.
Before I began the installation, I bought this book to help me with some of the new features, and hopefully avoid time-consuming mistakes during configuration. Well, I got even more than I bargained for with this book. The team of admins. who wrote this obviously spen countless hours setting up and breaking down 2000 Server, and they've done an incredible job of conveying their experience in this book. I was particulary impressed by the their ability to identify the more problematic or difficult topics and then go into greater detail or provide examples and exercises. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who is responsible for a major Windows 2000 rollout.
Where's the beef? Mar 13, 2000
This book has some very good information, but, does not convey information adequate to supply a system administrator with the information necessary to run a network. It appears that that was the intent of the book, and I think the writers missed the mark.
As examples, the backup utility is described. Unfortunately, the creation and maintenance of media pools is not discussed. One cannot use backup effectively (maybe not at all) unless the media pools and media are created and managed in advance of performing a backup.
As a second example, the group policy discussion tempts you about creating an install package for software but never shows you how.
This book will be one that I will use after exhausting other more reliable sources of information when I want an alternative view of Windows 2000 Server architecture and administration.
