Nowadays, most organizations have deployed mixed-platform environments that leverage the best of both Windows 2000/NT and multiple Unix/Linux operating systems. Managing these environments requires fast access to information that's normally scattered across multiple books: step-by-step techniques for performing key tasks on each platform, as well as practical solutions for integrating them. Unix and Windows 2000 Interoperability Guide delivers all this, in a proven quick-reference format that saves time, effort, and money. Unlike competitive guides, Unix and Windows 2000 Interoperability Guide offers quick-reference coverage for all four leading versions of Unix: HP-UX, Linux, Solaris, and AIX. Alan Roberts focuses each chapter on a single key system administration task, explaining how each version of Unix handles the task, presenting precise "how-to" instructions, and offering practical interoperability tips. The book concludes with a detailed section on UNIX and Windows 2000 interoperability, focusing on the issue UNIX shops care about most: effective file and print sharing.show more
