Summary: If you lived through the change from NT 4 Server to Windows 2000 Server, then you might be a bit gun-shy about Windows Server 2003. You may ask, what does Server 2003 offer that earlier NT 4 and Windows 2000 Server didn't? Is it worth the upgrade? Will it "play well" with NT 4 and Windows 2000-based domains? This book has these answers and more.

In chapter 1, Minasi gives you a quick overview of what's new in 2003. Some of the topics covered in this chapter include:

  • Pre-Server 2003 Varieties
  • Enterprise and Datacenter Features
  • Windows XP Support and Integration
  • Active Directory Improvements and more!
