Product Description

Today's system administrators and information management professionals find that they must be familiar with both UNIX and Windows NT and capable of managing their interaction and coexistence. Williams and Gardner's book focuses on the three specific areas of interaction administrators must understand to be successful: coexistence, in which UNIX and Windows NT cooperate and have common methods of maintenance; integration, referring to true operating systems interoperability; and migration, primarily the movement from UNIX to Windows NT. Review

If you're planning on converting an existing Unix-centric network to Windows NT, Windows NT & UNIX: Administration, Coexistence, Integration & Migration does a decent job of guiding you through the process.

The authors begin by comparing Windows NT and Unix generally, pointing out the strengths and weaknesses of each. This comparison assists you in deciding whether integration and migration are really necessary. Subsequently, they assume you're running both kinds of machines on a single network and explain how to perform various tasks in each of the environments.

Eventually, the book migrates from system-specific administration information and focuses on getting the two operating systems in synchronization. The authors discuss network protocols, routing, electronic mail, and the mechanics of using each operating system to handle a Web server. Samba, the Windows NT Server Message Block emulator for Unix, gets only cursory coverage. They also write on porting Unix applications to Windows NT. Lastly, a large portion of this book is devoted to documenting Unix commands and Windows NT procedures. --David Wall
