As Microsoft reminds us, there have been quite a few changes to Windows NT Server 4.0 since it was first released. Not least, there have been four service packs, plus Internet Information Server 4.0, Index Server, Certificate Server, Site Server Express, Transaction Server, Message Queue Server, Windows Scripting Host, Routing and Remote Access Support, the Distributed File System, and on, and on. Many NT Server 4 books don't cover all this new stuff, but NT Server Administrator's Bible, Option Pack Edition does, in fifteen new chapters that cover the essentials of managing all these seductive new freebies.
Half the book's completely brand-new. In the other half, there's solid how-to coverage of the day-to-day administrative stuff that hasn't changed (or at least not as much as you might like). You'll walk step-by-step through getting your NT Server network running (with worksheets for recording your key decisions). You'll learn the details of managing NT Server, customizing it, and improving its reliability and performance. There's coverage of setting up domains for enterprise networks; a detailed chapter on the NT Registry; and another on integrating NT Server with other networks. If you want to do the job right, this book will help, pretty much from start to finish. — Review by Bill Camarda (Contributing Editor)
