Covers the new features of the Windows .NET Server, including headless servers, Remote Desktop Services (RDS), and performance management. Learn how to implement Windows .NET Server as the base OS for the Microsoft .NET Framework and.NET Enterprise Servers, including SQL Server 2000 and Exchange 2000 Server. Covers Windows .NET Server's improvements to networking, Active Directory, usability, reliability, scalability, disaster recovery, management, and Internet integration as well as Windows basics and architecture; installing the Windows .NET Server; and managing server security.
Running example: A running example of a fictitious major international bank is used to demonstrate key concepts.

WCC series features: Each session takes 30 minutes to complete. Four time-to-go icons gauge the reader's progress through any given session. "Quiz Yourself" questions (at the end of each session) and "Part Review" questions allow the reader to review what they have just learned. Skill assessment software on the CD-ROM helps readers gauge their skill level before and after reading this book.

The CD-ROM has skills assessment software based on the sessions in the book and an appendix on the Windows interface.
