One of the many changes in Windows 2000 from Windows NT that is expanded in the Windows 2003 interface and administrative structure is the switch to a more homogenous approach to administrative utilities. Although many system and operating properties still are controlled through the Control Panel, most administrative functions have moved to the Microsoft Management Console (MMC). The MMC runs under Windows 2003 Server, Windows 2000, Windows 9x, and Windows XP. This section of the chapter examines the MMC and its component tools.
