since the tech who was proficient in active directory left for another job, i have been tasked with cramming the concepts of active directories and related concepts. i put the "for dummies" book on hold, so i plan to start there. any free books or publications i can check out to aid my learning process? currently reading through wikipedia entry, online.

Microsoft's Technet site is a good resource. Also, Microsoft has several podcasts that may be of help.

I'm sure most of your questions have been answered by now since this is an older thread but what exactly do you need to know?

basics:

dcpromo = promotes or demotes a computer to an active directory. The first time run will be your DC

* Your first Domain Controller (DC) will hold all five FSMO roles. Learn what these roles do!!

Schema master
Domain naming master
RID master
PDC master
Infrastructure master

ndstutil = has more commands that I can tell you via forum

netdom query = can be very usefull too for troubleshooting
