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!
