    If you need to deliver, you need this book!

    We are embarking on a complete redo of the NOS infrastructure at a medium size tier one automotive supplier. We have many high performance machines in the lab at the moment to provide a mock environment. Netware is the only well supported NOS that can scale practically to larger environments, and Netware 6 has compelling features over previous versions. Since we are building a mission critical 24/7 system to upgrade the existing one, we get 1 shot at getting a design right that they will have to live with for the next 7 to 10 years. Over the past 6 weeks we¿ve read thousands of pages of Netware 6 documentation, and discussed, and designed. At the beginning of the project, a guy who works with me purchased this book without looking at any reviews. I had purchased Mastering Netware 6 by Gaskin based on the reviews. I mentioned some of the comments made in the reviews of this book, and at length he felt a little foolish. However today, the book with the sticky note tabs and yellow highlights, is this book. It¿s the one reference that goes into enough detail to make intelligent decisions for design and implementation. I confess what got me to look at the book was a thirst for sadistic glee to verify the comments made about its inaccuracies. Sure enough I found one. On page 541 of the Gaskin book it says that iManage is the only option for managing DNS/DHCP in Netware 6. Page 1328 of this book mentions the DNS/DHCP management console, obviously a cut and paste from 5.1. But just to prove it, I got out the CD. Well OK, so this book was right. It was there. This book shows setting up using it, instead of the newer iManage. I thought it odd since even the Netware docs use iManage. Initially I attributed this to this book being behind the times. Later, I was having quite a time with DNS/DHCP and values changing automatically. I installed the DNS/DHCP management console, and learned the hard way that iManage is buggy, and retrieves information from other DNS servers into the one you are currently working on. We easily solved the problem using the tool recommended by this book. SLP is another area where this book takes a road less traveled. This is but a couple of instances of many we encountered while prototyping the network. In the end, my co-worker and I switched books. He likes the style and humor of the Gaskin book. I like full context discussions of how things work under the hood, the planning considerations, and the right implementation information to get up and running as designed. It also covers all of the new internet utilities as well as a 75 page chapter on integrating ZENWorks with Netware 6. You can go as deep as you want to with this book. It will even tell you how NDS works inside. Once you understand how it works internally, which is key to knowing whether or not you have an efficient tree design, you'll immediately recognize that a lot of advice out there comes from people 'blowing smoke'. Everything becomes crystal clear when you use this book. That knowledge will translate into confidence that your design and implementation will match the needs of the organization, and that you have leveraged all of the applicable strengths of Netware 6 in the process. With the other books, there was never quite enough or the right information. If I could pick only one book to go along with the Netware docs, this would be the book, hands down. (Actually this is the only one I reach for now.) I normally wouldn¿t spend my precious time writing a review like this, but this book is incredible. This book wasn¿t written for the reader, it was written for the doer. You will not recognize the strength of this book until you have to deliver. With the Netware docs, and this book, you can deliver! BTW, I'm not a book reviewer. I'm a guy with grease under his finger nails.
