View Full Version : Windows Server 2003 starting points?

04-07-2004, 12:41 AM
I am interested in learning windows Server 2003 from a network administrators point of view, partially because my school's network is slowly trying to switch to 2003 in order to start playing around with public key encryption, and the like. I am wondering what keywords or aspects of server 2003 should I look up to start with, and what common problems would an administrator run into? not solutions, I want to figure it out on my own. just problems-basically, "learning windows server 2003" is far to broad a topic to jump into, so what are the common problems\aspects that I could use as a starting point? Obviously "public key" and "cryptography" and I would imagine "authentication", but any others?

One of the cool parts of this is that my school provides copies of server 2003 enterprise to us through the Academic Alliance, so I can test the problems and solutions out in experience, and I learn mostly by tinkering, so that works out...

I have been learning a little about server 2003 myself, here (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/techinfo/training/sims.mspx) is a good place to start. It has interactive simulations on everything from group policy to update services.
If you look around in there, I am sure you can find anything you want to know.

Also, this (http://forums.windrivers.com/) forum has a section on windows server 2003. They have helped me figure out some things on server 2003 that I had no idea about.

But of course, PcGuide forums is my favorite place.:D :D
