Windows® 2000 Scripting Guide
The scripting guide in Windows® 2000 and its use.
With the growing dependence on computer systems, system administrators are facing newer challenges. As they work on meeting all these challenges, it’s the scripting guide that gives the system administrators the capability to design solutions to meet every organization’s needs. Furthermore, you don’t require any additional hardware or software to use the scripts, except if using the Windows® 2000 operating system.
Here, we discuss a few system administration challenges for which scripting solutions are available:
- Active directory users
- Files and folders
Active directory users
One of the most time-consuming and lengthy processes that the system administrators have to face is managing the user data. While keeping the record and managing individual users is a very drawn-out process, scripting enables the administrators to manage, efficiently and effectively, every user account and the corresponding data. The administrators can simply automate this data management system using a scripting tool. Windows® 2000 comes with a number of scripting tools.
Files and folders
The vast number of files and folders present on each and every user’s computer and the number of places these files and folders are stored make the job very difficult. Moreover, the number of the files and folders keep on increasing on a fast rate. Given the scenario, and the importance of the job, scripting can be used to attain competence and an organized system of managing files and folders.
Again, the problems that system administrators face regarding printing, especially in a large office, is to do with printers and the amount of printing happening in the organization. The problem that arises with multiple printers is that every printer requires separate administration tools. Therefore, the administrators have to manage every printer separately, which demands a lot of their time. With the help of scripting, the administrators can easily manage all the printers installed in the organization.
