Free Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools Available

Shortly after the launch of Windows Server 2003, Microsoft posted the Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools for download on its Web site. The 12-MB download contains software tools intended for administrators, developers and power users.

The tools help with management of Active Directory, Group Policy, TCP/IP Networks, the registry, security and scalability, among other things. The kit requires 30 MB of disk space, and users who ran the beta version must remove that toolset before installation.

Microsoft appears to still be working on the main documentation of the Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit, which accompanies the tools. That kit will include several books, including a Directory Services Guide, a Distributed Services Guide, an Internetworking Guide, a Networking Guide, a Server Management Guide and an IIS 6.0 Resource Guide. Those book-sized electronic documents will be available for free download when they are complete.

The Resource Kit Tools join other online resources Microsoft has posted recently for Windows Server 2003 customers to download. Other posted tools were the Group Policy Management Console and the Windows Server 2003 Administration Tools Pack.
