This volume covers the administration of the whole spectrum of possible Windows NT configurations -- from a single machine to a 2,000 node heterogeneous network within a large corporation -- showing readers how to use the administration tools and networking abilities built into Windows NT to design and implement effective computing environments. KEY TOPICS: Covers the administrative tools shipped with Windows NT; explains how to connect NT machines to a network, how to share hard disks over the net, how to install and share printers, how to create and manage an email post office for the network, and how to handle dedicated disk servers and user domains; discusses how to integrate NT into a heterogeneous network, how to use NT to communicate with different machines, and how to use NT to access other facilities on the network. MARKET: For owners of single NT systems, the "computer person" in a small business or department; an administrator in a large company planning to build a large NT network from scratch; an administrator in a large company planning to integrate NT into an existing network; or a new administrator who has inherited a NT network of some type.
