The support of machines and users in a multi-vendor systems environment remains the biggest challenge for even the most experienced system administrators. UNIX and Windows 2000 each bring complementary strengths to the table, and thousands of companies leverage the strengths of both platforms, rather than standardizing on one or the other. But it is not easy! Now, there's a complete sysadmin's guide to integrating Windows 2000 seamlessly with the six leading versions of UNIX, including Linux. UNIX & Windows 2000: Planning, Integration, and Administration covers the entire administration lifecycle, from planning through day-to-day management, based on a decade of experience at one of the largest integrated UNIX/Windows environments in the world, Georgia Tech. The book contains detailed coverage of establishing unified user accounts in UNIX/Windows environments; working with UNIX shells and NT profiles; and more.
