At this point you should have a pretty good understanding of users, computers, and groups in Active Directory and how to manage them. Later chapters address designing Active Directory and give practical examples of how to use the objects discussed in this chapter.
This chapter focused mainly on one tool: the Users and Computers snap-in. Later chapters introduce some Windows Support Tools and Resource Kit tools, and explain how to use scripting in user and group management.
This chapter assumed that you have full control over all objects in Active Directory. The next chapter explains how to control access and administrative rights to Active Directory by assigning permissions and user rights.
