Windows NT in a Nutshell
A Desktop Quick Reference for System Administration
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: June 1997
Pages: 361

Anyone who installs Windows NT, creates a user, or adds a printer is an NT system administrator (whether they realize it or not). This book organizes NT's complex GUI interface, dialog boxes, and multitude of DOS-shell commands into an easy-to-use quick reference for anyone who uses or manages an NT system. It features a new tagged callout approach to documenting the GUI as well as real-life examples of command usage and strategies for problem solving, with an emphasis on networking. Windows NT in a Nutshell will be as useful to the single-system home user as it will be to the administrator of a 1,000-node corporate network.

  • Covers both Workstation and Server versions of NT
  • Written primarily for NT 4.0, but still useful for 3.51
  • Presents the GUI hierarchy with callouts to provide easy-to-locate documentation of options, buttons, and dialogs
  • Covers the DOS-shell commands in great detail, as these come into increasing use by the experienced NT user when managing large and complex installations
  • Includes an extensive index that quickly directs you to both GUI and DOS-shell methods of accomplishing a task, without requiring you to wade through unrelated material
  • Examples demonstrate NT interoperating with UNIX, Novell Netware, and Apple Macintosh systems
