Computer Management Console (Windows 2000 and XP)
Since Windows 2000, Microsoft has begun to move a number of administrative tools to a new, modular format known as an MMC Snap In. Although this trend seems to be inexplicably reversing, the MMC console is an important tool.
Aside: The abbreviation MMC actually stands for Microsoft Management Console. Out of habit, most people still call this the MMC console, which of course actually expands to Microsoft Management Console console. This author acknowledges the interesting use of English, but will continue to use the MMC console phrase in the interests of clarity and common usage.
Before reviewing the Computer Management Console, it is necessary to understand the MMC system itself. Click the Start button, select Run, type mmc and press return. A window similar to Figure 104 appears.
This is a brand new MMC console in author mode, ready and waiting for snap-ins to be added.
