The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'Windows Nt Server 4.0 for Netware Administrators':

Reviewer Rob Slade wrote:
Network administration is a complex task. Only a small portion of that task is involved with knowing the specific commands and references for a given network operating system. Therefore, if you are an experienced Novell NetWare administrator, as Thompson points out, you already have a great deal of background that is directly relevant to managing a network based on Windows NT servers. Thompson only partially delivers on his promise to leverage that experience. The first two chapters, introducing Windows NT Server and Microsoft's networking architecture, do provide meaningful and useful comparisons of the two systems. In both text and tables the functions, features, strengths, and weaknesses of the two systems are contrasted. After that, however, the book mostly returns to the usual format of coverage of Windows NT, with little reference to NetWare. Not that the coverage is lacking: Thompson's material is clear, straightforward, and presents the most useful and practical information out of the myriad details that can potentially be involved. This book can be an excellent introduction to anyone approaching Windows NT Server for the first time, and has a strong emphasis on the practical aspects of networking. (I know that last statement may sound a little odd in view of the title, but all too many NT Server books try to cover the whole range of NT functions, without looking closely at networking itself.) Chapters look at configuring NT Server, managing disk storage, managing users and groups, controlling access to the file system, printing, backup, NT Registry, optimising performance, TCP/IP, DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol), WINS (Windows Internet Naming Service), DNS (Domain Name Service), RAS (Remote Access Service), tools for NetWare integration, clients for mixed networks, gateway service for NetWare, file and print services for NetWare, managing servers in a mixed network, and migrating to a pure NT Server environment. Appendices discuss Windows NT Server resources and Norton Utilities for Windows NT. (The chapter organization is strongly reminiscent of Novell documentation: this alone may make NetWare admins feel at home.) While it is hard to say that this book is specifically useful for NetWare administrators, it is certainly a valuable guide worth the consideration of anyone wanting a reference to NT Server networking. copyright Robert M. Slade, 1998
