Would there be any benefit in implementing AD (Win2000) in a 40 user Lan environment? Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you already have a 2k server, then yes. Security and manage-ability.

    In addition, if you're using Exchange 2000, 2003, or somewhere newer, you'll have to. Exchange 5.5 was the last version that maintained its own user directory. Bob

    Here are a few reasons why I would suggest Active Directory to be implemented: Active Directory tied into the DNS structure, and follows the DNS hierarchy for domains. Active DNS in itself makes implementing it worth the time. The ability to create OUs and apply Group Policies by each type of group allow you to not only better manage the accounts, but also allow you alot more control over the security on the network. Management of the domain is much quicker, as everything is controled through the MMC As more software become active directory enabled, it makes "single sign-on" much more of a reality.

    I am also curious too, as to his original question where he asked if there's a manual or some sort of guideline in implementing Active Directory, any thoughts?

    I have found Microsoft's help files a very good source of info. In 2003 Server, the help includes a check list for steps that must be taken in order to go foward.
