Book Description

Jan. 1 2003 Pro-Administrator's Pocket Consultant
""Microsoft Windows 2000 Administrator's Pocket Consultant"" is the concise, easy-to-use guide for Windows 2000 administrators -- the portable, readable reference that they'll want on their desktops at all times. Above all, it's designed for quick access so administrators can find what they're looking for right away. It has an expanded table of contents and a complete index for finding answers fast, plus quick-reference tabs for finding specific information and chapters. This hands-on guide covers both the Windows 2000 Professional and the Windows 2000 Server versions, but because much of the information applies to previous versions of Windows as well, administrators of Windows NT 4.0 can also use it. They'll find to be an invaluable resource, both for supporting current Windows systems and for migrating to Windows 2000.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't put it down June 15 2004
I picked up this guide almost a year ago preparing for the move over to Windows 2003. Haven't put it down since.
This book contains everything that an administrators needs to do day to day. And it does it on a screen by screen basis.
If you are doing any IIS work I highly recommend you also pick up the IIS 6 Pocket Consultant

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent June 2 2004
Exactly as described, this small form book provides a one-stop administrator's reference for the administration and maintenance of Windows 2003 without the need to break out the larger tomes available out there. Not for use as a learning guide for the OS, nor really designed as certification study guide, this is a must have for anyone on the job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another home run for William Stanek May 3 2004
By T. Brok
It's really simple: you can't go wrong with William Stanek. I picked up this and Stanek's Windows Commandline reference on the same day. This book has turned out to be the best of its class for Windows Server 2003. I reference this book agtain and again. It's been able to answer all the questions I've had with Windows Server 2003. If only I would have got this book as soon as we upgraded, it would have saved many headaches.
This book is written in an easy style, very concise and packed with information. William Stanek understands the way administrators work, he anticipates your questions and answers them. It's that simple. He clearly is a Windows guru and someone who ins't afraid to share his best secrets.
A flaw of this book, if you can call it one, is you have to read every page. Every page has important bits, if you skim the book you are going to miss useful things. I think okay as you WILL want to read every page. As others have said this book should be included with every copy of Windows Server 2003.

5.0 out of 5 stars A necessity April 19 2004
By A Customer
I have been a Windows user since 1989. Windows has come a long way since then and so has the opertating system. As one who was very familiar with Windows NT after moving to Windows Server 2003 I was completely lost.
Since this was my first exposure to Windows Server 2003 I started looking for information about how it worked and how to do the things that had become second nature with NT. Windows Server 2003 Administrator Pocket Consultant was the answer. The book covers everything a new admin must know in order to use the system efficiently. In addition, the text covers in detail the many tasks you perform every day with numerous advanced topics especially the real world details on how to avoid/resolve problems.
Windows Server 2003 Administrator Pocket Consultnat is the one book to have if you are new to Windows Server 03. Both the experienced Windows admin updating to WS03 and the new admin will find the Pocket Consultant very useful and a solid reference. This book should be included with WS03.

5.0 out of 5 stars A necessity Feb. 29 2004
By John H
I first started reading this book several months ago, and it's clearly a great book. I've learned so much from it. Windows Server 2003 can be puzzling even for experienced admins and Stanek makes it much less so. If you aren't familiar with any of Stanek's previous books, then you've missing out. Stanek writes in a clear, easy-to-follow style.
Windows Server 2003 Pocket Consultant concentrates on the core of the operating system. It focusses on daily tasks, day-to-day administration. And that makes perfect sense. It continues to surprise me how concise, yet detailed the book is. Many chapters do delve deep into the OS. And what's covered is covered thoroughly.
The new OS features are also covered in some detail, and since many of them are completely new, that's a very good thing.
This book lists for $29.95, which makes it an excellent value. I like Staneks books, they have earned prominent places on my bookshelf, so I have no hesitation strongly suggesting that if you use Windows Server 2003, you should get a copy of Windows Server 2003 Pocket Consultant. I also think it is the best book for any new admins. I've recommended it to lots of people at work who want to learn server.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says, excellent resource! Feb. 2 2004
By A Customer
Over the years I purchased many tech refs and programming books. A lot of the books I have are written by Stanek. His style is clear and concise. When it came time to start installing Windows Server 2003 on our network this was the first book I used. It hasn't let me done. It answered the questions I had. I have found myself reading entire chapters to get better acquainted. There's a wealth of knowledge and its clear the author is an expert consultant who knows his stuff. If you admin Windows this is the book to get. It is the Windows Server 2003 resource I use the most. I recommend any other Pocket Consultant books written by Stanek as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent reference book Jan. 27 2004
We recently moved to windows 2003 server. There were numerous things I had to do that had changed from nt4 days. A Dell Gold tech recommended this book to me. After only a few days it's helped greatly. I don't thinks its intended for a cover to cover read, its more of a you know the windows environment you need a helping reference hand now and then type book.
If you're looking for great reference for windows 2003 server, get this book!

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed! Jan. 10 2004
By A Customer
I love this author ecspecially his exchange books but i was not impressed with this one. He left out some new features such as ASR he did not mention at all in the book, he did not explain stub zones and also he did not explain how user can access the previous version of a folder when volume shadow is enabled.
The book is still good keep on your desk but this would not be the only windows 2003 server text i would also use windows 2003 administrator companion as well.
