Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
Novell's Guide to NetWare 5 Networks is simply the most detailed, authoritative, and useful guide to NetWare 5 you can own. More than 1,500 pages, written for the experienced NetWare professional, covering just about everything that's new in NetWare 5 (as well as most of the features that haven't changed). You even get a 3-user working version of NetWare 5, with online documentation — all you need to evaluate the product and plan your migration, hands-on. You'll walk step-by-step through installing or upgrading NetWare 5, and take a detailed look at NetWare Administrator, the Windows app that's still (notwithstanding the splashy Java-based ConsoleOne) your primary management tool. You'll find 500 pages of hands-on Novell Directory Services (NDS) coverage, including setup; working with trees, partitions, and replicas; extending NDS schema to support new object classes or properties; time synchronization; troubleshooting; even a chapter on NDS for NT, which extends powerful directory services to NT environments. NetWare 5 is self-tuning, but you can still enhance its performance, and Hughes and Thomas show you how. They address specific issues like sluggish startup after reboot, adjusting the size of volume blocks, fine-tuning application priorities, and managing virtual memory. You'll also learn specific techniques for improving NetWare 5 security; find specific login scripts for Win95, WinNT and mixed client environments; implementing Pure IP and Internet services; and providing print services through both traditional queues and Novell's slick new NDPS technology. If youdependon NetWare, Novell's Guide to NetWare 5 Networks is indispensable. — Review by Bill Camarda (Contributing Editor)
