Format: Paperback
Although this title does cover what it promises to cover with daily administration and configuration, the book never presents more information other than what you could have learned from reading the on-line IIS help file that is provided by Microsoft when you install IIS 5.0. It is nice to have the reference in print and it is very comprehensive in that it does cover the aspects of IIS, from configuring each of the major services (WWW, FTP, SMTP and NNTP), to using the Index Service, SSL, ASP (an introduction to the concept) and adjusting performance. But it never goes deeper than explaining each component of the dialog boxes IIS gives you and the general information needed to understand how the section relates to IIS as a whole.
If you're looking for a comprehensive introduction into IIS 5, this is a great place to find it. But If already know the basics, and are looking for something that will help you master IIS 5, you should look elsewhere.

Format: Paperback
This book is meant to teach you how to use IIS 5. It says on the back "Everything you need to know to maximise IIS 5.0..". This is completely untrue. This book teaches you nothing about the latest features of IIS, for example, it have virtually nothing on ASP. It is not comprehensive enough to be a reference manual, nor is it written in a format that would make it easy to read from start to finish like a study guide. It is not one of those books where you can read a single chapter and get an understanding of that subject. It is like written like a Microsoft study guide (contradiction in terms) but without any detail, so I can't really see who would benefit from this book at all. I would say wholly useless and award it 0 stars if that was possible.

Reads like someone took a few of the MS whitepapers, culled out the really useful information but ensured that the basic fluff was left intact, threw it all in a blender set on liquify and regurgitated a steaming load of "Well, duh!". Save your money and read the FREE whitepapers Microsoft provides on their site or apply the cost of the book toward purchasing a subscription to MS Technet. I'd have given it ZERO stars but Amazon forces us to be nice. This book's only hope for redemption is that I'll someday get to squash a bug with it.

I liked this booked because it gave me a quick overview of what each option means and what it is used for. Precisely why other people graded it down. I bought it because it was the only book out there on the subject and in browsing it I found it fit my needs. I think it is unfair to downgrade the book because it is not in depth enough. I did not want an MCSE study book, I just wanted a book that filled in the gaps as I set up my web server. This book was exactly what I needed.

I thought this book did a fair job in covering the Administrative issues concerning setting up IIS 5.0. If you are just entering into managing a Web server on the Windows 2000 platform, then this book can get you started with the concepts and running productively in short amount of time. The book also does well providing you with external resources for information, as well as a good troubleshooting chapter. I thought it was worth the money I spent on it.

I have eight Windows 2000 books. This is the ONLY one of those that covered how to install and configure Certificate Services AND how to deploy and install client certificates. This is rather important for a Web server. The book is clear and concise and covers the major topics needed by most IIS5 Administrators. It is a bit weak on true server security lock-down and ASP but there are other books for that anyway.

This book covers everything I needed to know to run IIS. It covers the issues from upgrading from IIS 4 to IIS 5, setting up Websites, and management issues. There are loads of step through exercises, and plenty of screen captures to walk you through the tasks you need to know to manage a Web. A very complete book.
