You cannot compare Active directory's benefits to Windows NT. 4. 0 under any circumstance, the benefits of Active directory are just immense. Active directory can be used as a tracker helping you track all know resources and get to respond to them. It is also inbuilt in windows 2000 so there is no hassle of installation. Earlier when Windows NT. 4.0 was still in use it was difficult to do integration. Active directory makes it easier to structure your organization into units than the Windows NT. 4.0 which could not provide such security and privileges across an organization. This simply means that while using the Active directory it is easier to expand your network in the organization without causing hiccups.
