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.

Computer Management Console on the A+ Exam

CompTIA explicitly states knowledge of the Computer Management Console as one of the objectives of the A+ exam. Whilst not complex in itself, it contains many individual tools that you should be aware of. Be sure to study the console and understand what options are available to you.


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.


Figure 104: Microsoft Management Console

 


This is a brand new MMC console in “author mode”, ready and waiting for snap-ins to be added.
