Sams Teach Yourself Microsoft Small Business Server 4.5 in 21 Days

Sams Teach Yourself Microsoft Small Business Server in 21 Days, gives the reader a hands-on guide to installing and managing Microsoft's Small Business Server (SBS) product. SBS is designed for the small business and contains many unique components and management tools. The introduction and success of SBS surprised many in several ways. Consultants and VARs have struggled with the SBS paradigm of performing all actions via the SBS management console.

And few books and outside resources exist to guide consultants, VARs, small business owners and staff alike on their SBS journey. With step-by-step instructions based on real-world experience, Harry Brelsford will take the reader through all of the stages of installing and maintaining their SBS installations. Along the way, Harry will keep the reader on the right track and out of the many pitfalls that spell disaster for the user.
