The Windows 2000 Server
Lab Manual

by Gerard Morris

Metropolitan State University

Learning Windows 2000 server is not a spectator sport!

You're starting to teach Windows 2000 Server, but the books are all words, not enough "doing"!

The Windows 2000 Server Lab Manual by Gerard Morris

Morris supports Windows 2000 Server courses ranging from beginning to advanced. It is designed to easily work with (not replace) your current Win 2000 "concept" book.

Each topic is covered by

  • Concepts You Need To Know section. This will list Windows NT concepts the student needs to know to get maximum benefit from the lab.
  • Guided Labs section. This leads the student through the specific steps required to accomplish a task . Each topic will have one or more guided labs. Multiple labs for a topic allow each professor to tailor the labs to the individual course.
  • Do-it-Yourself Labs section. This allows students to simulate the work of a network administrator. The lab will list specific objectives and the students will have to: 1) decide which tool(s) will help them; and 2) achieve the stated objectives.
  • Design Labs section. This requires students to design a part of the system, e.g. design global and local groups for a given scenario. This type of lab will be appropriate for only some of the topics.
  • Concept Questions. These are embedded in the guided labs for each chapter. The goal is to get students to relate what they are doing in the lab to the most important Windows NT concepts. Answers for these questions are divided between the accompanying Student Disk and in the Instructor manual.
Required Settings—the settings required for each lab, so faculty can pick and choose only those labs which match their local configuration. These items or settings may come from a lab in a previous chapter or from an earlier lab in the same chapter.

Integrated Use of Microsoft Management Console in the chapter labs. It is covered in detail in Chapter 2. Then it is used throughout the chapters where appropriate.

"I will adopt this book when it comes out. Please get it out as soon as possible as I need it. It is the best example of a lab book for NT that I have seen."
—Jerry Humphrey, Tulsa Community College

"Its flexibility, coverage, organization, and clarity makes (Morris) superior to many other textbooks I am familiar with."
—Mazen Akkam Johnson County Community College

"I like the book because of its ease of use and step by step instructions. I have had student look over the book have told me it was easier to follow than our adopted course book."
—Prof. Nicholas Vonada Pennsylvania College of Technology

"I currently teach out of the book from Microsoft Press and the lab manual is much easier to follow than the lab manual from Microsoft Press. The lab manual from Morris explains in more detail and gives information not found in our current book. Also, his chapter on Troubleshooting is more complete than other lab manuals."
—Vern Browne, Riverside Community College

"This book is comprehensive and accurate. It is written very well and communicates clearly to students. For the most part if a student gets off track with a procedure, it is relatively easy to back track and locate a misread step or procedure. Please do not change the overall scope. The labs are more accurate, directed, detailed, and asks thoughtful questions. The concept questions encourage the student to think beyond simply 'read-and-do.'"
—B J Honeycutt, Clayton College
