Windows NT User Administration
By Timothy D. Ritchey, Ashley J. Meggitt
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: November 1997
Pages: 224

Windows NT User Administration covers everyday problems faced by system administrators and goes beyond the GUI to describe the tools you need to solve them. The book covers the whole spectrum of user management: user security, user customization, and system resource auditing. You'll find real-world examples and many useful Perl scripts to help you keep your system humming.This book is especially useful to administrators working in a large-scale environment. The examples are based on the authors' experience in setting up a user community that is in constant change (the student population of a major university); you can benefit from what they've learned and begin to automate tasks that otherwise would take up much of your day. The authors explain how to create large numbers of users and restrict their ability to modify the environment. Once you have your user community under control, you can use the Perl scripts in this book to audit activity on your servers and notify you automatically if anything goes wrong.Many Windows NT books introduce you to a range of topics, but seldom do they give you enough information to master any one thing. This book (like other O'Reilly Animal Guides) is different. Windows NT User Administration makes you an expert at creating users efficiently, controlling what they can do, limiting the damage they can cause, and monitoring their activities on your system. Don't simply react to problems; use the techniques in this book to anticipate and prevent them.

Windows NT User Administration Review

By Kevin Long

from Undisclosed

Comments about oreilly Windows NT User Administration:

Once again, an ORA book that is great, thorough, and detailed, till you sit down to use it. The useradmin module appears to be un-installable with ActiveState. There might be some other method of installing it, but if so, the complete lack of install instructions takes care of that. I'm so tired of getting ORA books on Windows and Perl that are chock full 'o typos, and non-functioning "concepts". Bah.

Windows NT User Administration Review

By Brother Ug

Comments about oreilly Windows NT User Administration:

I was first attracted to this book by the picture of Great Cthulhu on the cover. Imagine my suprise and horror when I begain to read the filth and depravity contained within.

Naturally, I couldn't put it down and I and my acolytes incorporated some of the tamer rituals into our day-to-day adoration of the Black Beast, The Destroyer of Worlds, Bringer of Misery and Pain to Humanity in Many Guises, our NT server.

Needless to say, since then things have been one long seated ride down the rusty razorblade of life.

Thanks, Ashley and Timothy! You've made our lives just a little bit more like the living hell we deserve for running NT in an environment outside of someone's nightmare.

Top Marks!
