hi, im already technically savvy and can do some design through windows 2003 and recently setting up basics of 2008 32bit as dont own 64 bit yet & recently isa 2006 basics providing internet access to internal domain users and a remote vpn client logging on from home but it would be preferable to me if i can find a step by step instruction book of how to configure stuff!

i have though discovered those windows pocket consultants and accidentally happened to find an online version and when i scrolled through i thought it was brilliant step by step instructions and troubleshooting specific tasks which i do realise!!!!!

although i have since lost that 'url' and cannot find it again i saw it even gave instructions of how to configure for a specific scenarios hyper-v which is something i wouldn't mind learning so can get a good grounding although i have used vmserver/workstation and 'dns' 3 to a basic level

ive always used google/ee etc and would just like to find a step by step of how to do specific tasks ie how to create some of the following:

- how to create an ad account
- how to configure dns
- how to configure gpo
- how to configure gpo rsop
- how to configure gpo wmi
- how to configure rras/radius for remote vpn clients
- sites services & domain etc
- everything to do with windows 2003/2008 obviously based on specific scenarios bia authors of those books

all of the above i have already done, but just wish to have a book in my hands.  sometimes reading online gets monotonous, but to know i have a book i can just flick through is a good thing sometimes!!!

question 1.  can anyone point me in the right direction for those (.pdf types i can just look and decide if i want and also the exact book version via ebay/amazon for example so i can find out the cost ?

- windows 2003 standard - setup already
- windows 2003 enterprise - never used yet
- windows 2003 r2 - never used yet
- windows 2008 standard - setup already
- windows 2008 enterprise - never used yet
- windows 2008 r2 - never used yet
- isa 2006 - setup already as above
- tmg - when i have 64 bit i can use evaluation copy to learn
- asa - not got relevant 'ios' yet to add to my routers although i could use 'gns3' as ive already learn some basics that far already

Hello Michael - now back from holiday so will start a trawl through your outstanding questions. That said, looks like you have a whole month of Sundays worth just here.....

The obvious answer to most of those things you mention above is right here of course. Fair play, you won't get an absolute for every one but you will for some. In many cases though you'll get pointed to various links as no-one (me included) enkoys just typing in things that are already available.

You can use Amazon who have most books (and comparable offerings from other authors) but I prefer to get my stuff from the authors normally at Microsoft Press - just personal preference. Also, most MS Press books have accompanying CD's or e-book copies included so you don't have to carry damn manuals everywhere.

So let's see what we have......

- how to create an ad account
- how to configure dns
- how to configure rras/radius for remote vpn clients
- sites services & domain etc

The Windows 2003 or Windows 2008 Administrator's companion is the book for this. Walks through the process from end to end and desrcribes what the components actually are.

- how to configure gpo
- how to configure gpo rsop
- how to configure gpo wmi
I have this e-book on my Kindle (Windows group Policy Guide) from Amazon and paper copy from MS Press but Technet has a great start point on the processes here regarding GPO's:
