I purchased this book because I have become responsible for securing a relatively small cloud software companies information systems. While I had a lot of background in network engineering and security, I did not know nearly enough about Active Directory. I knew enough to be dangerous (in other words, I've used the Users and Computers tool a handful of times), but I knew nothing about the inner workings or how you would go about using it to secure my windows servers and desktops. This book give a great overview of the inner workings of AD, how to manage it, best practices, and some security advice. One thing this book does not provide is step-by-step guides on how to configure all the various aspects of AD. it's just not that kind of book. However for the kind of engineer that just needs a nudge in the right direction from an expert before beginning the journey on their own, it's perfect. It definitely helps if you access to an AD ecosystem on which you have some or most administrative privileges so you can at the very least just look at the things the book is describing. I don't know that the book would have been as helpful for me if I didn't have that. This is one of the very few IT books that I've read cover to cover. It's also one of the few I find I reach for fairly often. So if you're like me and you just inherited an Active Directory forest after spending your past life managing Cisco routers and switches, pick up this book.
I found this book very informational. I manage AD at my work and was looking for some in-depth information on managing it.
If you're a geek you will probably find stuff missing from this book or not well enough explained. But given the area it tries to cover and the depth it goes into this is the best book you'll find about AD.Could have been easily called "the ultimate guide to AD". One of the gems in my tech ebook library collection.
This fifth edition is excellent book, as it covers AD versions from 2K3 to 2K12, with important hints, what is different and new in each version. Very practical, easy to read and to understand. Plus, no doubt the authors are well known with vast and demonstrated experience and knowledge of AD.
Best Active Directory book around. I've been carrying it with me. =)
Good book, good price. Won't go wrong.
As usual Oreilly with another great tech book.
