Windows 2000 Product Key Crack
Windows 2000 introduced the Microsoft Management Console (MMC), which is used to create, save, and open administrative tools. Each of these is called a console, and most allow an administrator to administer other Windows 2000 computers from one centralised computer. Each console can contain one or many specific administrative tools, called snap-ins. These can be either standalone (with one function), or an extension (adding functions to an existing snap-in). In order to provide the ability to control what snap-ins can be seen in a console, the MMC allows consoles to be created in author mode or user mode. Author mode allows snap-ins to be added, new windows to be created, all portions of the console tree to be displayed and consoles to be saved. User mode allows consoles to be distributed with restrictions applied. User mode consoles can grant full access to the user for any change, or they can grant limited access, preventing users from adding snapins to the console though they can view multiple windows in a console. Alternatively users can be granted limited access, preventing them from adding to the console and stopping them from viewing multiple windows in a single console.
Windows 2000 and Windows 2000 Server were superseded by newer Microsoft operating systems: Windows 2000 Server products by Windows Server 2003, and Windows 2000 Professional by Windows XP Professional.
Although Windows 2000 is the last NT-based version of Microsoft Windows which does not include product activation, Microsoft has introduced Windows Genuine Advantage for certain downloads and non-critical updates from the Download Center for Windows 2000.
As of 2011, Windows Update still supports the Windows 2000 updates available on Patch Tuesday in July 2010, e.g., if older optional Windows 2000 features are enabled later. Microsoft Office products under Windows 2000 have their own product lifecycles. While Internet Explorer 6 for Windows XP did receive security patches up until it lost support, this is not the case for IE6 under Windows 2000. The Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool installed monthly by Windows Update for XP and later versions can be still downloaded manually for Windows 2000.
This article includes information about the system services roles and the server roles for the Microsoft products that are listed in the Applies to section. Although this information may also apply to Windows XP and to Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional, this article is focused on server-class operating systems. Therefore, this article describes the ports that a service listens on instead of the ports that client programs use to connect to a remote system.
Sunbelt Software offers a product called NTAccess that can reset passwords on Windows NT, 2000, and XP boxes, including servers running Active Directory. It does this using conventional Windows boot disks with additional few files that will trigger the software and permit a password reset. NTAcccess cannot disable Windows 2000 SYSKEY protection so the password for this must be known or the floppy disk storing it must be available. The application can, however, disable the NT 4 version of SYSKEY.
Best makeover of a formerly ho-hum product Microsoft's $109 Works Suite 2000 gets our nod for this category. The update turned a much-maligned suite into a comeback-package-of-the-year many of us would be proud to own. Kudos to Microsoft for finally giving us what we wanted: a cheap way to get Word on a new PC, along with extras like Money and Encarta.
DiskXtender 2000 virtualizes storage to enable intelligent, automated file migration and access to data, as well as storage consolidation and NAS aggregation. Designed for the Microsoft(R) Windows(R) NT and Windows 2000 operating systems, DiskXtender 2000 improves the flexibility and scalability of the Snap Server product line aggregating them into virtual storage pools, enabling fast access to business-critical data stored on a network, while lowering the total cost of ownership associated with managing information assets.
The Snap Server and DiskXtender 2000 storage aggregation solution works across the entire Snap Server product family including the portable Snap Server 1000, the desktop Snap Server 2000, and the rack-mountable Snap Server 4100. This solution will also be available for the soon-to-be-shipping terabyte-class Snap Server product. Snap Server appliances typically install in five minutes or less without any disruptions to the network and deliver automatic, simultaneous multi-platform file-sharing support for Windows, Novell, Macintosh and UNIX/Linux users on the same network.
