The Second Edition of the Active Directory Administration Cookbook is now available

Active Directory Administration Cookbook, second edition

Slightly over three years ago, my first book was published. These past few months, I've been working with Packt to write my second book: the Active Directory Administration Cookbook, Second Edition.

Starting today, July 15th 2022, you can find physical copies of it on shelves at Amazon. What you'll find is 696 pages filled with 173 recipes for managing all aspects of Active Directory on Windows Server 2022 and all aspects of Hybrid Identity with Azure AD.

As you may have come to appreciate from the original edition of the Active Directory Administration Cookbook, all my recipes include zero-fluff, real-world and straight-to-the-point information on actually getting things done.

You've probably heard me say that when you're not ashamed for what you did or how you did things several years ago, you're doing it wrong. To me, writing the Second Edition of the Active Directory Administration Cookbook made that abundantly clear again.

That's why, you'll find DNS and AD CS as new topics alongside more familiar topics as AD FS and Azure AD in this book. You'll also find lots of previously confusing wording addressed and errors fixed. My two technical editors, Carl Webster and James Mendez helped me thoroughly with that.

Enjoy!

    Will this also be available on managementboek.nl again like previous? Might buy both copies unless 2nd edition contains the same but more and updated information?

    Thanks.

    • At the moment, only Amazon seems to have the paperback listed.

      The second edition contains most of the original 149 recipes of the previous book. Indeed, I've updated them, but I also included one new recipe on AD FS and two chapters on DNS and AD CS (including 23 new recipes).
      I'd recommend only buying the Second Edition of the Active Directory Administration Cookbook, unless you want me to sign both. šŸ˜‰

    I bought the e-book (Kindle) which has a orange color cover.

    It does not say the Second Edition anywhere. Does it mean I bought the wrong one?

    • Hi John,

      If your intention was to buy the Second Edition of the Active Directory Administration Cookbook, than I'm sorry to inform you that you've bought the 'wrong' book.

      You now have the 'First Edition' of the Active Directory Administration Cookbook. That version was published in May 2019.
      As you can imagine, its Azure AD chapters are somewhat outdated. The Active Directory chapters are based on Windows Server 2019 instead of Windows Server 2022 and thoroughly usable today.

      If you want to, I can sign you up for a review copy of the Kindle version of the Second Edition of the Active Directory Administration Cookbook. Would that be helpful?
      (I can't guarantee any timing, as this is a promotion that is run by the publisher)

    HI,

    Are there discount for the people that bought the first book ?

    • Packt offers a subscription service , where you can read both books for a monthly price.
      However, this model doesn't apply to physical copies and Kindle versions of the book.
