9780132390781: Lean Sigma: A Practitioner's Guide

Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Unleashed, 3rd Edition is the first book on the market to cover Windows Server 2003 R2. This latest edition will keep the text viable with the major "R2" update being released from Microsoft late in 2005. Many of the Windows Server 2003 titles have not been revised since release in 2003 even though Microsoft has released a service pack and now the R2 update.

 

This book will provide detailed guidance focused on the most commonly used yet most complicated planning, installation, migration, and problem solving topics that challenge IT professionals. This title goes far beyond the basic installation and setup information found in hundreds of other resources and focus on the less understood yet most important details for system configuration, tips, tricks, and techniques to successfully implement and administer a Windows networking system.
