Scripting Solutions for System Administration

Microsoft® Windows® 2000 Scripting Guide

System administration encompasses many different tasks in many different areas. Part 2 of this book examines scripting technologies useful in managing core elements of a computing infrastructure, including such items as printers, services, Active Directory user accounts, and computer hardware. Each chapter features a number of tasks routinely required of system administrators, such as stopping and starting services, managing disk quotas, and taking a hardware inventory. Each task includes a brief description, a script that performs the task, a step-by-step analysis of how the script works, and a discussion of how the script can be modified to meet your individual needs.
