This is one big book. At about 1100 pages, it tackles one thing and one thing only. Windows NT Server.
Nothing more, nothing less. The book itself is divided into seven different parts. The breakdown is like this:
Part I - Introduction, Planning, Setup and Implementation
Part II - TCP/IP
Part III - Windows NT Server Administration
Part IV - Service Pack 4.0 and the Windows NT Server Option Pack
Part V - The Four Flavors of Windows NT Server 4.0
Part VI - Optimizing and Troubleshooting Windows NT Server 4.0
Part VII - Preparing for Windows 2000
Obviously, you can tell by Part IV, that this book is a little bit dated. However, the information that the six other parts
contain will definitely make up for the outdated information on Service Pack 4 this book contains.
Two key topics that this book
covers are Daily, Monthly and Annual Windows NT Server Administration and Optimizing and Troubleshooting Windows NT Server.
The author provides us with his own "Daily Dozen" list that is essentially a twelve step plan to making sure that your Windows NT Servers
are running without any problems. While most of the information is not ground breaking, it does provide a good overview of topics that
most NT Administrators should at least be aware of. In addition, he provides some good information on more long term issues such as disaster
recovery, backup archives, and <gasp> budgeting for your network!
For optimizing and troubleshooting your Windows NT Server, this book may be one of the best books that I have seen. He's got about 200
pages dedicated to nothing but optimizing your server. So about 20% of the book is optimization. Not bad. He covers some interesting areas such as (obviously)
Performance Monitor, but he also covers topics such as Why Performance Declines, Performance Benchmarks and my personal favorite, Lying with Performance Analysis.
Overall, this is a good reference book for any NT Administrators out there who have any Windows NT 4.0 Servers in house. With the move to Windows 2000 not exactly
occuring overnight for most companies, it's going to be a few years before you'll be hard pressed to run across an NT 4.0 Server somewhere. Even still, the sections on
troubleshooting and optimizing would easily apply to Windows 2000.
