In exit memo, Money touts Active Directory

On his last day as the Defense Department's chief information officer, Art Money signed a memorandum encouraging DOD agencies to immediately deploy Microsoft Active Directory on networks.

Money noted in his April 6 memo that many offices have 'developed detailed architectural guidelines and migration plans for Windows 2000 and Active Directory.'

Money said the shift to Active Directory would improve systems interoperability. Active Directory lets users access all objects and resources through a single environment and via one log-on. Any domain controller on a network can make changes to the directory.
