Chapter Summary

  • MMCs are the common, system tool interface in Windows Server 2003.

  • Snap-ins are individual tools that can be loaded into an MMC.

  • Some snap-ins can be used to configure remote computers; others are limited to local computer access.

  • MMCs can be saved in either Author (full access) or User (limited access) modes. The mode of an MMC does not empower or disable a user from being able to do that which he or she has authorization and access to do through permission sets.

  • Remote Desktop For Administration allows for the same administration of a server from a remote location as if logged on to the local console interactively.

  • Remote Desktop For Administration, for desktop operating systems, is available only with Windows XP.

  • Remote Assistance is like Remote Desktop For Administration for the desktop, allowing remote viewing and control of Windows XP desktop computers.

  • Remote Assistance will also work on a computer running Windows Server 2003.

  • Two users are required for Remote Assistance to be viable: one user at the target desktop, and the expert helper at another computer. Both must agree on the control actions taken during the session, and the session can be ended by either party at any time.
