Sixteenth Systems Administration Conference,
USENIX Association, 2002).
We were recently presented with the challenge of deploying a large
scale Windows 2000 environment, initially for the Administration
Division, but eventually including academic and other users. Rather
than try to eventually re-integrate independently administered
domains, we took this as an opportunity to develop the tools and
resources to provide a campus-wide Windows 2000 environment that is
well integrated with the existing enterprise information and computing
systems, much like we integrated our Unix systems. This would automate
many of the mundane administrative functions, yet provide appropriate
delegation of control to departmental administrators as needed. This
paper describes the systems we developed to make this happen.
