Description

The Perfect Reference for the Multitasked SysAdmin
The Microsoft Windows Vista operating system offers several changes and improvements over its predecessors. It not only brings a new and redesigned interface, but also improves on many administrative utilities and management consoles. It also enhances the system’s reliability, performance, and problem-solving tools. As administrators, Vista will sometimes look like its predecessor, Windows XP, and at other times, look like an all-new operating system. How to Cheat will help you get Vista up and running as quickly and safely as possible and provide you with a solid idea of all the important changes and improvements the new Microsoft Vista OS has to offer.

In the book you will:
* Automate Windows Vista Installation
See how Windows installations can be automated for large-scale deployments using the Windows Automated Installation Kit (WAIK).
* Install and Maintain Devices
Windows Vista contains device drivers for hundreds of PnP devices, and the Device Manager snap-in is the main utility on a local computer for managing them.
* Customize Appearances, Taskbars, and Toolbars
See how to use a personalization page, use the taskbar, and customize desktop themes.
* Manage File System Formats, Partitions, and Volumes
Learn how Windows Vista supports basic and dynamic volumes and two partition styles: MBR and GPT.
* Increase File System Performance
Learn how using tools such as disk defragging, cluster size adjustment, removing short filename support, and compression can help with performance.
* Administer via Remote
Remote Desktop and Windows Firewall can help administrators perform administrative tasks on remote computers.
* Managing Services
The Services utility allows you to view the status of services, as well as to disable nonessential services.
* Configure TCP/IP in Vista
See how to configure TCP/IP (both IPv4 and IPv6) via the user interface or via the netsh command.
* See What’s New with Wireless in Vista
Understand wireless security and learn how to install a wireless network.
