By Sean Daily, Series Editor
Welcome to
The Tips and Tricks Guide to Active Directory Troubleshooting
!The book you are about to read represents an entirely new modality of book publishing and amajor first in the publishing industry. The founding concept behindRealtimepublishers.comisthe idea of providing readers with high-quality books about today’s most critical IT topics—at nocost to the reader. Although this may sound like a somewhat impossible feat to achieve, it ismade possible through the vision and generosity of corporate sponsors such as NetPro, whoagree to bear the book’s production expenses and host the book on its Web site for the benefit of its Web site visitors.It should be pointed out that the free nature of these books does not in any way diminish theirquality. Without reservation, I can tell you that this book is the equivalent of any similar printedbook you might find at your local bookstore (with the notable exception that it won’t cost you$30 to $80). In addition to the free nature of the books, this publishing model provides othersignificant benefits. For example, the electronic nature of this eBook makes events such aschapter updates and additions, or the release of a new edition of the book possible to achieve in afar shorter timeframe than is possible with printed books. Because we publish our titles in “real-time”—that is, as chapters are written or revised by the author—you benefit from receiving theinformation immediately rather than having to wait months or years to receive a completeproduct.Finally, I’d like to note that although it is true that the sponsor’s Web site is the exclusive onlinelocation of the book, this book is by no means a paid advertisement. Realtimepublishers is anindependent publishing company and maintains, by written agreement with the sponsor, 100%editorial control over the content of our titles. However, by hosting this information, NetPro hasset itself apart from its competitors by providing real value to its customers and transforming itssite into a true technical resource library—not just a place to learn about its company andproducts. It is my opinion that this system of content delivery is not only of immeasurable valueto readers, but represents the future of book publishing.As series editor, it is my raison d’être to locate and work only with the industry’s leading authorsand editors, and publish books that help IT personnel, IT managers, and users to do theireveryday jobs. To that end, I encourage and welcome your feedback on this or any other book inthe Realtimepublishers.com series. If you would like to submit a comment, question, orsuggestion, please do so by sending an email tofeedback@realtimepublishers.com, leavingfeedback on our Web site atwww.realtimepublishers.com, or calling us at (707) 539-5280.Thanks for reading, and enjoy!Sean DailySeries Editor
