5.0 out of 5 stars
An outstanding menu of code snippets to make life easier!, Feb. 17 2002
I am revising this review as I again return to this book. I am constantly surprised just how good this book continues to be. With all of the poorly written and just plain wrong computer books out there, this book continues to be a lifesaver.
When I need to find out how to do something in ADSI, I go to the index, within a couple of minutes I have a prototyped, mostly working application. This book is worth every penny I paid for it and then some.
This book has so many different examples that I went through and wrote a management application just by taking the code snippets from it and combing them to do what my application had to do.
It doesn't explain the differences between NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 implementations. But, it does cover most of the functionality built into ADSI. Also, there are some things that are built into ADSI that are counter-intuitive, but the author goes into a sufficient amout of detail to get you going on your way.
It is the best treatment of ADSI I have come across both from an administrators point of view and a developers.
