Chapter 3.2. Using MMC Consoles > Overview of the Microsoft Management Console

Overview of the Microsoft Management Console

In earlier versions of Windows, Microsoft provided a number of separate tools for managing resources and services on a computer. The Microsoft Management Console (MMC) in Windows 2000 provides a single environment in which these tools can be combined in a single console with a consistent interface. Because of this approach in Windows 2000, you have the ability to create your own custom consoles that have the tools that you use most often, all in one place.

You have a lot of flexibility in how you configure your consoles. Into a single console, you can combine multiple tools, ActiveX controls, and even add Web pages. Figure 3.2.1 displays an example of a custom console that combines several network administration tools in a single console.
