Chapter 32. Managing Users > Users on a Domain LAN

Users on a Domain LAN

At this point, you have learned about the use of Windows 2000 user and group accounts on a very simple workgroup LAN. Next, you'll explore the possibilities of using Windows 2000 Professional in a Domain LAN environment. Chances are that if you are using Windows 2000 Professional on a domain-based LAN, you will not have to do much administration of user accounts, resources, and permissions (at least not by yourself). You should, however, understand the concepts behind connecting Windows 2000 to a domain-based LAN so that you can efficiently use your computer to its fullest potential.

On a domain-based LAN, the administration of user accounts is generally centralized. Instead of having a user account exist on each computer for each user who may use it, one user account exists on a domain controller. This account is created by the LAN administrator.
