-The Job Object API, with its ability to setup processor affinity, establish time limits, control process priorities, and limit memory utilization for a group of related processes, allows an application to manage and control dependent system resources. This additional level of control means the Job Object API can prevent an application from negatively impacting overall system scalability.
-Applications certified to run on Windows 2000 Server are tested by Microsoft to ensure high quality and reliability.
-Protects DLLs installed by applications from conflicts that can cause application failure.
-Active Directory uses multi-master replication to ensure high scalability and availability in distributed network configurations. "Multi-master" means that each directory replica in the network is a peer of all other replicas; changes can be made to any replica and will be reflected across all of them.
-Help ensure network access even if primary DHCP services become unavailable.
-Build a single, hierarchical view of multiple file servers and file server shares on a network. Dfs makes files easier for users to locate, and increases availability by maintaining multiple file copies across distributed servers.

-Set quotas on disk space usage per user and per volume to provide increased availability of disk space and help capacity planning efforts.
-Automatically migrate data that hasn't been recently accessed to less expensive storage media, maximizing disk space for the most heavily accessed data on the disk.
-Using Cluster service and NLB, avoid downtime caused by planned maintenance or upgrades using rolling upgrades. Migrate your applications or IP workload to one node, upgrading the first node, and then migrating them back. You can roll out hardware, software, and even operating systems upgrades without taking the application offline. Both Windows Clustering technologies are backwards compatible with their Windows NT Server 4.0 predecessors
-Automatically detect and recognize newly installed components, simplifying network system configuration and reducing service down time.
-Built-in software RAID options enable greater data redundancy such that if any single drive in an array fails, no data loss occurs and access to data is not interrupted.
-Add new volumes, extend existing volumes, break or add a mirror, or repair a RAID 5 array, while the server is online, without impacting the end-user.
-Over time, fragmentation can have a severe impact on the performance of a busy file or web server. These tools increase disks availability and performance.
-Improve system recovery by booting the system from a CD to repair or replace core system files that are preventing the system from booting.
-Booting in Safe Mode allows users to troubleshoot the system during start up by changing the default settings or removing a newly installed driver that is causing a problem.
-In the event of a disk failure, the file system can quickly undo or redo transactions as appropriate to recover data, and return to a known functioning state.
-Backup and recovery features make it easier to backup data and then recover data in the event of a hard disk failure. Windows 2000 allows back up to a single file on a hard disk and tape media.
-Configure services across the operating system to restart automatically if they fail.
-Quickly stop and reliably restart Web services without rebooting the computer. IIS can automatically restart even if a misbehaving web application does cause a failure.
-Crash dumps allow faster reboots for systems with large amounts of physical memory.
-Stop all processes related to an errant process or application without rebooting the system.
-Cluster service for Windows 2000 uses the Active Directory service to publish information about clusters. Integration with the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) makes setup easy and allows administrators to monitor visually the status of all resources in the cluster.

-Windows Installer monitors application installations and cleanly performs uninstall/removal tasks.
-Automatically detect and recognize newly installed components, simplifying network system configuration and reducing service down time.
-Simplify operating system updates by marinating one master image of the operating system on the network.
-The Active Directory integrated, Internet standards-based Domain Name System (DNS) service simplifies object naming and location through Internet protocols, and improves scalability, performance and interoperability. Systems that receive addresses from a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server are automatically registered in DNS. Replication options with legacy DNS systems and through Active Directory can simplify and strengthen name replication infrastructure.
-A no-knowledge network setup capability by configuring IP addresses automatically.
-These wizard-driven tools let administrators centrally configure and deploy customized remote access dialers that can integrate automatic-update phonebooks, custom connect actions (like firewall authentication and client virus inspection), driver updates and more.

-Windows 2000 introduces the Active Directory service, a scalable, standard-compliant directory service that makes Windows 2000 easier to manage, more secure, and more interoperable with existing investments. Active Directory Services centrally manage Windows users, clients, and servers through a single consistent management interface, reducing redundancy and maintenance costs
-Active Directory is implemented as a high-performance, native LDAP service that ensures interoperability in extranet environments and is ideal for supporting E-commerce applications.
-Group policy allows central management of collections of users, computers, applications, and network resources instead of managing entities on a one-by-one basis. Integration with Active Directory delivers more granular and flexible control.
-Active Directory enables administrators to delegate a selected set of administrative privileges to appropriate individuals within the organization to distribute the management and improve accuracy of administration. Delegation also helps companies reduce the number of domains they need to support a large organization with multiple geographical locations.
-Safely enable Terminal Services for remote administration purposes. Up to two concurrent sessions are supported, with no impact on performance or application compatibility.
-Integrated with Active Directory, the automated software distribution capabilities of IntelliMirror management technology enable administrators automatically distribute applications to users running Windows 2000 Professional based on their role in the company. For example, all accountants can automatically receive spreadsheet software.
-Use the Run As command to eliminate the security risks of leaving workstations logged-in as administrator.
-Administer the server and automate tasks via the command line instead of graphical user interface tools with scripts.
-Reduce costs associated with security configuration and analysis of Windows-based networks. In Windows 2000, use Group Policy to set and periodically update security configurations of computers.
-Unify and simplify system management tasks through a central, customizable console that allows control, monitoring, and administration of widespread network resources. All management functions in Windows 2000 are available through the MMC.
-Schedule any script, program, or document to be invoked at any time or any interval, and on events such as system boot, user logon, or system idle.
-A uniform model through which management data from any source can be managed in a standard way. WMI provides this for software, such as applications, while WMI extensions for the Windows Driver Model (WDM) provide this for hardware or hardware device drivers. WMI in Windows 2000 enables management of even more functions.
-Centrally manage Domain wide-PKI policies. Specify which Certificate Authorities a client will trust, distribute new root certificates, adjust IPSEC policy or determine if a user will be required to use smart cards to long onto a particular system.
-RADIUS authentication, authorization and accounting enable centralized management of network access policies, and improve capacity planning and accounting of network costs. Now with enriched policy management to let you control who can access what, when and how.
-Manage individual and group system policies, providing more efficient, central, scalable management of network devices, computers, clients and network application services.
