What is windows 2000?


Windows 2000 is a line of operating systems produced by Microsoft for use on personal computers, business desktops, laptops, and servers. Windows 2000 was released to manufacturing on 15th December 1999 [3] and launched to retail on 17 February 2000.[4] It is the successor to Windows NT 4.0, and is the final release of Microsoft Windows to display the "Windows NT" designation.[5] It was succeeded by Windows XP for desktop systems in October 2001 and Windows Server 2003 for servers in April 2003. Windows Me was released seven months after Windows 2000 and one year before Windows XP, but Windows Me was not intended to be, nor did it serve as the successor to Windows 2000. Windows Me was designed for home use, while Windows 2000 was designed for business.[6]
Four editions of Windows 2000 were released, listed here in increasing ranking: Professional, Server, Advanced Server, and Datacenter Server.[7] Additionally, Microsoft sold Windows 2000 Advanced Server Limited Edition and Windows 2000 Datacenter Server Limited Edition, which ran on 64-bit Intel Itanium microprocessors and were released in 2001.[8] While each edition of Windows 2000 was targeted at a different market, they shared a core set of features, including many system utilities such as the Microsoft Management Console and standard system administration applications.
Support for people with disabilities has been improved over Windows NT 4.0 with a number of new assistive technologies,[9] and Microsoft increased support for different languages[10] and locale information.[11]
All versions of the operating system support the Windows NT file system, NTFS 3.0,[12] the Encrypting File System, as well as basic and dynamic disk storage.[13] The Windows 2000 Server family has additional features,[14] including the ability to provide Active Directory services (a hierarchical framework of resources), Distributed File System (a file system that supports sharing of files) and fault-redundant storage volumes. Windows 2000 can be installed through either a manual or unattended installation.[15] Unattended installations rely on the use of answer files to fill in installation information, and can be performed through a bootable CD using Microsoft Systems Management Server, by the System Preparation Tool.[16]
Microsoft marketed Windows 2000 as the most secure Windows version ever at the time;[17] however, it became the target of a number of high-profile virus attacks such as Code Red and Nimda.[18] For ten years after its release, it continued to receive patches for security vulnerabilities nearly every month until reaching the end of its lifecycle on 13 July 2010.

I have windows 2000 server i was wondering how do u start the reinstall with out a disk?


You have to boot into dos mode.. and navigate to the windows server 2000 source directory

and then type the following

cd i386
winnt.exe

I suggest you to activate write-behind caching on the drive you want to install so that the file copy operations are bit faster. You can do this by typing the following command

Active Directory in 2003 server


If active Directory is not in administrative tools then it is likely that the machine is not configrued as a domain controller. You will need to add this as a role through server manager. Once configured as a domain controller Active Directory will appear under admin tools

Features of active directory


Active Directory think of it has management system for all network LAN PCs in your domain. You can add users to certain enterprise groups, you can disable accounts, push and pull software application better then you can in SMS domain. I use to to clone user accounts or create new user groups. Very easy to learn. To install on Server requires a domain, DNS. If you're using Windows Server 2003 and setup the server to manage active directory all the options for the installation process will appear for installation. There are a lot of info online and in books if you need more info. There are training classing offer at MS Solutions Centers.

Regarding ActiveDirectory Services in Windows system


Active Directory (AD) is a technology created by Microsoft that provides a variety of network services, including: using the same database, for use primarily in Windows environments. Active Directory also allows administrators to assign policies, deploy software, and apply critical updates to an organization. Active Directory stores information and settings in a central database. Active Directory networks can vary from a small installation with a few hundred objects, to a large installation with millions of objects (though not easily [3]).
Active Directory was previewed in 1996, released first with Windows 2000 Server edition, and revised to extend functionality and improve administration in Windows Server 2003. Additional improvements were made in both Windows Server 2003 R2 and Windows Server 2008.
Active Directory was called NTDS (NT Directory Service) in older Microsoft documents. This name can still be seen in some AD binaries.
There is a common misconception that Active Directory provides software distribution. Software distribution is run by a separate service that uses additional proprietary schema attributes that work in conjunction with the LDAP protocol. Active Directory does not automate software distribution, but provides a mechanism by which other services can provide software distribution.

When you choose to back up the system state on a domain controller, the following items are included: • Active Directory (NTDS) • The boot files • The COM+ class registration database • The registry • The system volume (SYSVOL)When you back up the system state on a non-domain controller, the following items are included: • The Boot file • The COM+ class registration database • The registryWhen you back up a member server or domain controller with Certificate Server installed, the following additional item is also included: • Certificate ServerWindows 2000 Backup can back up and restore Active Directory on Windows 2000 domain controllers. You can perform a backup operation while the domain controller is online. You can perform a restore operation only when the domain controller is booted into Directory Services Restore mode (by pressing the F8 key when the server is booting).

Click the Backup tab. 3. Click to select the System State check box. (All of the components to be backed up are listed in the right pane. You cannot individually select each item.)

NOTE: During the system state backup, you must select to back up the Winnt\Sysvol folder. You must also select this option during the restore operation to have a working sysvol after the recovery.The following information applies only to domain controllers. You can restore member servers the same way, but in normal mode.

If any of the following conditions are not met, the system state is not restored. Backup attempts to restore the system state, but does not succeed. • The drive letter on which the %SystemRoot% folder is located must be the same as when it was backed up. • The %SystemRoot% folder must be the same folder as when it was backed up. • If sysvol or other Active Directory databases were located on another volume, they must exist and have the same drive letters also. The size of the volume does not matter. uparrow.gifBack to the top
How to Restore the System State on a Domain Controller loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); 1. To restore the system state on a domain controller, first start the computer in Directory Services Restore Mode.

Choose the Windows 2000 installation you are going to recover, and then press ENTER. 4. At the logon prompt, supply the Directory Services Restore mode credentials you supplied during the Dcpromo.exe process. 5. Click OK to acknowledge that you are using Safe mode. 6. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Backup. 7. Click the Restore tab. 8. Click the appropriate backup media and the system state to restore.

NOTE: During the restore operation, the Winnt\Sysvol folder must also be selected to be restored to have a working sysvol after the recovery process. Be sure that the advanced option to restore "junction points and data" is also selected prior to the restore. This ensures that sysvol junction points are re-created. 9. In the Restore Files to box, click Original Location.

NOTE: When you choose to restore a file to an alternative location or to a single file, not all system state data is restored. These options are used mostly for boot files or registry keys. 10. Click Start Restore. 11. After the restore process is finished, restart the computer.
