For both integration and migration, this text provides an unbiased view of the advantages and disadvantages of NetWare and NT. The authors offer comprehensive information on each tool available for internetworking the two systems. There is step-by-step guidance on installing and integrating both servers. The accompanying CD-ROM provides Windows NT and NetWare utilities, reference documents, electronic copies of integration and migration templates, relevant third-party shareware and freeware programs, and networking technology related to on-line tutorials.

For many years, Novell NetWare ruled the roost in terms of small network operating systems, but now it's facing serious competition from Windows NT. As new equipment slowly replaces old, many organizations are attempting to make Windows NT and NetWare work together. In NetWare to NT Complete: Integration and Migration, Villenueve and McKinnon explain how the two systems can be made to inter-operate smoothly.
The authors begin by comparing Windows NT and NetWare. Next, they guide the reader through an analysis of the costs and benefits of migrating all or part of a network from NetWare to Windows NT. The authors then begin their technical comparison of the two systems with the protocols that they use to communicate data--IPX/SPX, NetBEUI, TCP/IP, NCP, NetWare IP, and (cursorily) a dozen other protocols. After that, they explain how to get workstations of various kinds to talk to disparate servers; for example, how to get a NetWare node to talk to a Windows NT file server. Logically enough, Villenueve and McKinnon then address server heterogeneity--networks with some servers running Windows NT and other servers running NetWare. The authors pay a lot of attention to Samba, a Windows NT emulator for NetWare. Villenueve and McKinnon conclude with discussion of the management issues involved in migration by outlining specific migration problems and proposing a plan for handling them.
Although the text is not as streamlined as it might be, it is precise and readable. Unfortunately, the conceptual diagrams and many of the screen shots are often small, grainy, and hard to read. The accompanying CD-ROM contains Samba and a bunch of documentation. --David WallFrom the Back Cover:
