Conventions Used in This Book

Throughout the book, you will find special sections set aside from the main text. These sections draw your attention to topics of special interest and importance or to problems that implementers invariably face during the course of a deployment. These features include the following:

Informational Notes


This feature is used to underscore the importance of a specific concept or to highlight a special case that might apply only to certain situations.

More Info

When additional material is available on a subject, whether in other sections in the book or from outside sources such as Web sites or white papers, the links to these extra sources are provided in the More Info sections.


The Caution feature points out the places where you can get yourself into trouble if you do something or fail to do something. Pay close attention to these sections because they could save you a great deal of aggravation.


This feature directs your attention to advice on timesaving or strategic moves.

Best Practices

Getting the most stable performance and the highest quality deployment often means knowing a few ins and outs. The Best Practices sections are where you’ll find such pieces of knowledge.


There are times when an ounce of prevention through planning is worth many hours of troubleshooting and downtime. Such times merit the Planning feature.

Notational Conventions

The following conventions are used throughout the book.

  • Characters or commands that you type appear in bold type.

  • Italic in syntax statements indicates placeholders for variable information. Italic is also used in book titles and URLs, and in key words and terms when they are first introduced.

  • Names of files and folders appear in Title caps, except when you are to type them in directly. Unless otherwise indicated, you can use all lowercase letters when you type a filename in a dialog box or at a command prompt.

  • Filename extensions appear in all lowercase.

  • Acronyms appear in all uppercase.

  • Monospace type represents code samples, examples of screen text, or entries that you might type at a command prompt or in initialization files.

  • Square brackets [] are used in syntax statements to enclose optional items. For example, [filename] in command syntax indicates that you can choose to type a filename with the command. Type only the information within the brackets, not the brackets themselves.

  • Braces {} are used in syntax to enclose required items. Type only the information within the braces, not the braces themselves.
