Review:

Microsoft System Management Server (SMS), in the right hands, can make it easier to manage a fleet of servers and workstations that are distributed across a network. Administering SMS shows how to make your hands the right hands. This book helps you figure out what advantages (if any) your company can derive from installing SMS, then guides you through the deployment process. From there, a series of scenarios help you figure out how to get what you want from this popular Windows administration tool and provide you with the reference material and tutorials you need to get the system working right. Whether you want an automated way to distribute virus definitions or a complete solution for managing software across your network, this book has information that is relevant to your goals.

Mark Wilkins takes a proven approach to his material, combining prose to explain concepts and step-by-step procedures to lay out exactly what to do in specific situations. He also fits a fair bit of reference information--lists of files and objects, mainly--into the mix. The main deficiency here is an almost exclusive focus on Windows NT 4.0, but Windows 2000 hasn't penetrated far enough into the market to make Wilkins's work obsolete. Let's hope for a Windows 2000 update soon. --David Wall

Topics covered: Microsoft System Management Server (SMS) 2.0 and how to use it to keep networks of Windows computers up-to-date and properly monitored. There's lots of coverage of planning (including the process of deciding whether you'll benefit from SMS), plus information in deployment and configuration. Extensive coverage goes to network administration tasks, software metering, hardware and software inventories, and software distribution (including distributions that involve SMS Installer).
