Windows Server 2008 is the latest release of the Windows Server operating system.
Over the years, it has evolved quite dramatically from the early days of Windows NT
Server or even Windows 2000 Server. With the release of Windows 2008, Microsoft again
has introduced a number of new technologies intended to help IT professionals improve
their ability to provide network services to the clients they serve.
I’ve had the opportunity to write a book on every version of Windows Server over the
past dozen years, and when my coauthors and I set out to write this book, we wanted to
once again provide you, the reader, with a lot of really valuable information. Not just
marketing fluff that talks about features and functions, but to really dig down into the
product and share with you best practices on planning, preparing, implementing,
migrating, and supporting a Windows 2008 environment.
Even though Windows 2008 released in early 2008, we’ve been fortunate enough to work
with Windows Server Codename “Longhorn” since as early as 2005, so we’ve had almost
three full years on an early adopter program. The thing about being involved with a
product so early on is that our first experiences with Longhorn Server were without any
documentation, Help files that provided guidance, or any shared experiences from others.
We had to learn Longhorn Server from experience, usually the hard way, but that has
given us a distinct advantage of knowing the product forward and backward better than
anyone could ever imagine. And we started to implement Longhorn Server in production
environments for a select group of our enterprise customers over a year before the
product release—where organizations were depending on Longhorn Server to run key
areas of their business.
So, the pages of this book are filled with years of experience with Windows 2008, live
production environment best practices, and fully updated RTM code specifics that will
hopefully help you design, plan, prototype, implement, migrate, administer, and support
your Windows 2008 environment!
This book is organized into 11 parts, each part focusing on core Windows Server 2008
areas, with several chapters making up each part. The parts of the book are as follows:
. Part I: Windows Server 2008 Overview—This part provides an introduction to
Windows 2008 not only to give a general technology overview, but also to note
what is truly new in Windows 2008 that made it compelling enough for organizations
to implement the technology in beta in production environments. We also
cover basic planning, prototype testing, and migration techniques, as well as
provide a full chapter on the installation of Windows 2008 as well as the new
. Part II: Windows Server 2008 Active Directory—This part covers Active Directory
planning and design. If you have already designed and implemented your Active
Directory, you will likely not need to read through this section of the book in detail.
However, you might want to look through the best practices at the end of each
chapter because we highlight some of the tips and tricks new to Windows 2008 that
are different from Windows 2000/2003. You might find that limitations or restrictions
you faced when designing and implementing Windows 2000/2003 and Active
Directory have now been revised. Topics such as federated forests, lightweight directory
services, and identity lifecycle management capabilities might be of interest.
. Part III: Networking Services—This part covers DNS, DHCP, domain controllers,
IPv6, and IIS from the perspective of planning, integrating, migrating, and coexisting.
Again, just like in Part II, you might find the Notes, Tips, and best practices to
have valuable information on features that are new in Windows 2008; they might
have you reading these chapters in-depth to understand what’s new and different
that you can leverage after a migration to Windows 2008.
. Part IV: Security—Security is on everyone’s mind these days, so it was a major
enhancement to Windows 2008. We actually dedicated three chapters of the book
to security, breaking the information into server-level security such as Public Key
Infrastructure (PKI) certificate services; transport-level security such as IPSec and
NAT traversal; and security policies, network access protection (NAP), and network
policy server (NPS) that are new to Windows 2008.
. Part V: Migrating to Windows Server 2008—This part is dedicated to the migrations
from Windows 2000/2003 to Windows 2008. We provide a chapter specifically
on tips, tricks, best practices, and lessons learned on the planning and migration
process to Windows 2008. We also have a chapter on application-compatibility
testing of applications currently running on earlier versions of Windows Server and
how to test and migrate applications to a Windows 2008 platform.
. Part VI: Windows Server 2008 Administration and Management—After you get
Windows 2008 in place, you end up spending the rest of your time managing and
administering the new operating system platform, so we’ve dedicated six chapters to
administration and management. This section covers the administration and
management of users, sites, organizational units, domains, and forests typical of a
Windows 2008 environment. Although you can continue to perform tasks the way
you did in Windows 2000/2003, because of significant changes in replication, background
transaction processing, secured communications, Group Policy management,
and Windows PowerShell management tools, there are better ways to work
with Windows 2008. These chapters drill down into specialty areas helpful to
administrators of varying levels of responsibility. This part of the book also has a
chapter on managing Windows 2008 using System Center Operations Manager
