****************WHAT IS NTOOLS E-NEWS?******************************
Sunbelt Windows NTools E-News is the World's first and largest 
E-Newsletter designed for NT System Managers that have the job to 
get and keep NT up & running in a production environment. Sunbelt 
launched this electronic newsletter early 1996. Every two weeks we
keep the Windows NT community informed and aware of new developments
of NT and 3-rd party NT System Management Tools. You get hints and
tips that will enable you to better utilize and understand Windows NT, 
now renamed to Windows 2000 (W2K and pronounced Win-two-K).

You'll find general Windows NT related and third party news, tech
information, and 3-rd party beta and release information. As a
subscriber to NTools E-News[tm], you will receive instant notifi-
cation of important NT related events and you are also a charter 
member of the Sunbelt Field Test Bonus Program. Sunbelt Software is 
the first and largest distributor worldwide of Third Party System
Management Tools for Windows NT with 6 subsidiaries in the US and 
Europe.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

1. "EDITORS CORNER" 

Hi NT-ers,

If this is your first issue, welcome. You are receiving this news
every two weeks because you are interested in Win NT Utilities and
have downloaded one from Sunbelt or one of our developers. NTools
E-News summarizes all the important NT-related news, and informs
you immediately when interesting or important news hits the wires.

We now have almost 260,000 subscribers and an important section
of you are from Europe. Since Internet connections are not yet
as well penetrated and often more expensive than the USA, the
Sunbelt offices in Europe have decided to launch a CD subscription
service for you. 

In one of the following newsletters we will present a form you can
fill out. This will get you automatic regular CD's via snail mail 
with the latest evaluation versions of best selling NT utilities, 
and new tools to have a look at. Note, this is for Europe only.

If you want to see all the earlier Sunbelt NTools E-newsletters, they 
are indexed and are searchable via a web-interface at the Sunbelt 
website over here http://lyris.sunbelt-software.com/scripts/lyris.pl

Again, there is a lot of very interesting NT news. Let's have a look!

Warm regards,

Stu Sjouwerman

2. "TECH BRIEFING"

* THE DIFFERENCE IN FIRST AND SECOND GENERATION QUOTA TOOLS

(How to explain the difference between FIRST and SECOND 
GENERATION tools to your boss)

Early 1995, when NT 3.51 came out and was getting ready
for production environments, it became clear that disk
quotas were needed. At the suggestion of Microsoft, a
company in the North East of the USA wrote a tool called
Quota Manager[tm]. This was the first commercial NT quota 
tool.

A few other similar utilities called Quota Server[tm] and 
SpaceGuard[tm] saw the light after some time. All three tools 
essentially use the same method to manage disk quotas and 
all three are First Generation utilities. Their interfaces 
are different but they are built on the same principle.

In 95% of the cases, mainly for backup purposes, NT System 
administrators give users a home directory on the server.
That also means they need to limit the space each user can 
take. First Generation tools use NT Security to lock users 
out of their home directory. They are object-based and not 
user based. (Objects are files, directories or shares on a 
drive).

How that works? Here is a simple example. Say you give a 
user 10 Meg of space for their home directory on the server.
The quota tool now knows: "No more than 10 Meg for Joe User
in that directory". Joe User writes a 2 Meg file to his
home directory, and all is well. Joe writes a 7 Meg file
to the server. His home directory now has 9 Megs into it
and he's almost out of space, right?

He may get a message that his directory is almost out of
space, but he decides to try something out. He writes a
his brand new Star Wars 25Mb movie clip to his home 
directory. Strangely enough, the quota tool will let him! 
His disk usage is now 34 Megabytes but he only had 10 to 
start with. What is wrong with this picture?

Well, First Generation quota tools cannot stop this from
happening. Only _after_ the data is written, the directory
object is locked out from the user (using NT Security) That 
might be too late as we all know a full disk might bring NT 
to a crash.

How are Second Generation Tools different? Well they do
not use the NT Security module any more to lock out users.
Second generation tools are a little smarter in looking at
quotas. They use a so called Filter Driver instead. This
filter driver simply looks in real-time WHO writes WHAT
to the disk. 

When Joe User writes that 25Mb movie clip to the server,
the filter driver sees: "Oh, Joe User only has 10Meg space,
and now he tries to exceed his space? Naughty, naughty. Joe, 
you are a bad boy, you are not allowed to save this file!"
So Joe User will have to save the file to his local disk
or decide to not save it at all because it wasn't all that
important to start with.

You see the difference, but it is a really important one.
QuotaAdvisor[tm] is the only tool around that works this way.
And actually, the simple (bare bones) quotas that were
implemented in NT5.0 are patterned the same way. This means 
that Microsoft decided to use second generation filter driver 
quota technology into NT5.0 (now renamed to Windows 2000 
which is commonly abbreviated to W2K)

Should you wait for W2K to get disk quotas? No. Microsoft
didn't! Redmond chose QuotaAdvisor for their datacenters
and is now implementing this second generation technology. 
The W2K quota functionality is so limited that only a very 
small NT network can use them. Simply ask yourself the 
question, do I use the built-in NT backup applet? Well, for 
the same reason you are not going to have much use for the 
built-in quotas in W2K. They are not fit for enterprise 
deployment. 

-----------------------CONCLUSION----------------------------
So the choice for an NT disk quota tool has become very easy 
indeed. Advise your management to use the latest technology, 
the one that will be used in the new version of NT and the 
one that now has been chosen by Redmond for their own internal 
use. The question is simple: are they using a filter driver?
If Yes: Cool :-) - If No: it's just first generation :-(

3. "NT RELATED NEWS" 

* WINDOWS NT MARKET Y2K RESISTANT

Microsoft is now the world's largest software company. Their earnings 
soared 43 percent in the latest quarter to beat analysts' expectations.
The main contribution was made by Operating Systems and Office. That
is quite the opposite compared to large enterprise software vendors
that sell ERP solutions. These have already reported that Y2K is the
cause of slowing their business down. 

The MS finance chief highlighted a continued shift to the company's 
higher-priced Windows NT operating system for desktop computers, 
robust demand for Office despite an impending upgrade, and strong 
sales of the BackOffice product family.

IDC stated in their new report called "Strategies for Windows NT in 
the Enterprise" that Windows NT's major use is as a departmental
infrastructure server, for things like file/print, messaging, and
communications, but not yet as a major enterprise server running 
mission-critical applications. Source: http://www.idc.com 

NT is in many cases a new environment that works alongside existing
ones like Novell and Unix (Linux), and fits into a larger picture
of moving away from Mainframes and Mini's to lower cost LAN's. 
Since implementing an NT server is a relatively low cost and fast
solution, the Y2K issue does not seem to be a major influence in
getting NT deployed. In Sunbelt we have seen no slowdowns either,
The Sunbelt First Quarter 1999 was 2.5 times higher than Q1, 1998.

When we look at what is in the pipeline for the coming quarter, things 
look very strong, and Microsoft also predicts continued growth in the 
NT market. Likely the growth will slow down a bit close to the end
of the year, but it seems that the NT Marketplace is fairly Y2K
resistant. Good to know. Continue with your MCSE certification .
---------------------------

* MICROSOFT NOW ALSO OFFERS FREE ONLINE EXCHANGE SEMINAR

In the last newsletter, we reported that Microsoft was presenting
a free 120-day Exchange trial and migration kit. Now, they also present
an online seminar that explains how to plan and implement that migration. 
These are very useful. The MS-online seminars use streaming technology 
so you HEAR the presenter and you SEE the slides. Available via Web: 
http://www.microsoft.com/Seminar/1033/P79350.htm

----------------------------

* COMPARISON BETWEEN NT AND LINUX PERFORMANCE

In a recent MindCraft study, the company claimed NT was running faster
than Linux on a 4-way SMP Dell Box. This benchmark was sponsored by 
Microsoft. Many Linux system administrators protested and said that 
Linux was not well tuned. Thank you all who pointed me to the rebuttals 
that were written by people that had time to look into the details a 
little more than I did. The whole thing created quite a stir again in 
the ongoing controversy. 

But one participant in the discussion on the Sunbelt NTSYSADMIN list
put it quite succinctly. I'm taking a short extract from his wise
words.

"Friends, Enough. Another OS is another tool. You don't do all your
programming in one language, you don't put all your money in one bank, 
you don't watch just one TV show - why think that one-OS-fits-all? 
None of them do. I install, use, and support NT, Solaris, Linux, 
IRIX and MacOS in my work environment. Cut the jabber - learn from 
others how to pick and choose the "best" OS for the application at 
hand." Thanks DL Hilton!

Here are some hotlinks. First the MindCraft results, then the others:

* GET YOUR HANDS ON W2K BETA 3 FOR A TEST DRIVE

Bill Gates announced at the Windows World/Spring COMDEX in Chicago
a few days ago that Microsoft is opening up Beta 3 for anyone that wants
it! Quite a few large hardware manufacturers are also starting to sell
machines with W2K Beta 3 on it, so you can create a test bed and get your
hands dirty with this new technology. April 28-th is the planned day
for the release. 

For $60 you can order the new "Windows 2000 Corporate Preview Program" 
(CPP) and start learning now about Windows 2000 Professional and Windows 
2000 Server. What is included in this pack?

- Windows 2000 Evaluation and Deployment Kit-a two-CD set with planning 
and technical deployment guides. 
- Windows 2000 Corporate Preview Guide-a manual with step-by-step 
installation and how-to instructions.

It's all over here: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/preview/order.asp
--------------------------

* IS MICROSOFT GIVING AWAY FREE PC'S? WELL, KIND OF...

You first have to buy a house, that is. MS owns the HomeAdvisor web
site and decided to make a splash promo. Any eligible applicant who 
successfully closes a qualifying loan through HomeAdvisor will receive 
either a Concentric Systems Cyrix 300 system with 32Mb for a loan over
125K$, or a Casio PDA for loans under 125K$. Neither of these two
puppies are "Windows 2000 Ready" though!

--------------------------

* MAY NT BOOK OF THE MONTH: "WINDOWS NT PERFORMANCE"

One of the two most mentioned problems with NT is performance. Creating
time to tune and tweak is a challenge, and then what to do?
Mark Edmead and Paul Hinsberg wrote "Windows NT Performance: Monitoring,
Benchmarking and Tuning". It's published by New Riders, and has ISBN
1-56205-942-4. Cost is $29.99 USA and puts the whole thing in an easy
to read, well illustrated 250 pages. The authors get right to the 
point and in the back of the book all the performance counters are
explained. Warmly recommended!

4. NT THIRD PARTY NEWS

* DOUBLE-TAKE PREVENTS UNPLANNED DOWNTIME

A Sunbelt Survey of last week shows again why you use mirroring
and clustering solutions. 75% of you mention prevention of unplanned
downtime as the major reason for clustering your systems. In the
next newsletter we will publish the full survey that mainly focuses
on MSCS.

And of course we all know it. For Mission-Critical NT Servers like
databases, file/print servers, Exchange and WebServers you cannot 
rely on just backups. Downtime is terribly expensive. One solution 
is mirroring the data to another server. That provides you with a 
real-time backup that safeguards against data loss and accidental 
deletions, but more over when the source server dies, your target 
server will take over and in most cases users will not even notice.

This architecture also allows you to set up a Disaster Recovery
scenario in case your whole building gets hit by Billy Backhoe
who cuts through the main power cable. Whoops! The productivity 
losses are staggering when you sit down for a moment and think 
about it. 

The latest Double-Take release V3.04 is everything you wanted in a 
fault-tolerance and disaster recovery tool and then some more. The 
statistics are excellent and V3.0 even comes with a free simulation
utility that tells you how much bandwidth you would need to mirror
a server.

Here is a feature comparison with other tools that will save time:
http://www.sunbelt-software.com/dt_competitive_compar.htm

Here is an excellent Version 3.0 PowerPoint presentation:
http://www.sunbelt-software.com/evals/dtake/DT3.0.ppt

Here is the updated 30-day download page:

This is one of those tools that you cannot afford not to run.

* STAT INTRODUCES SECURITY CONSULTANT LICENSE

STAT is definitely an instant bestseller. NT Security becomes a
bigger and bigger issue when domains start to grow. STAT is short
for Security Test and Analysis Tool, and it sure points you to
all the holes in your NT environment. With its regular web-updates
STAT keeps your network protected against attacks. 

The developer Harris now released a new sort of Licensing option.
This is called the 'Security Consultant License', also called the
'Travelling License'. It works a little different from a normal
license. The license is _per_person_. That means each consultant 
has their individual STAT license and they are allowed to use that 
anywhere with a 30-day expiration key they will get. This is called 
the TIK (Temp Install Key). The consultant is allowed to use this 
TIK on multiple sites, but no other consultant can use that TIK. 
So, it's simple: no concurrent use of the TIK. 

The price is the same as the normal STAT license: $2,995 and $795
per year subscription service. This is actually an incredible deal. 
With STAT you can go into any NT site and provide an immensely 
valuable security check service. Two hotlinks below:

* SPQUERY RELEASES NEW VERSION 3.0

MTE Software announced the release of a completely redesigned 
SPQuery version 3.0 for Windows NT. SPQuery is used to manage 
Service Pack and Hotfix installation on NT machines. SPQuery 
V3 has been completely redesigned and it includes a new user-
interface, extensive reporting capabilities, improved support 
for hotfix download through proxy servers and firewalls, automatic 
list update for new hotfixes, identification of obsolete hotfixes, 
and improved scheduling of hotfix installation to remote machines.

For a view of the new interface, check our this jpg:
http://www.sunbelt-software.com/spq3.jpg

"We decided to complete re-engineer SPQuery from the ground up" 
comments Jon-David Wiesman, chief architect of SPQuery. "In 
version 3.0 we incorporated those features our SPQuery users 
wanted most. Reporting what hotfixes are installed is just a 
small part of the new SPQuery features," he added.

SPQuery 3.0 includes the following new enhancements:

- Completely new user interface
- Expanded reporting capabilities
- Reports missing hotfixes
- Automatic Internet query and update for new hotfixes
- Download of hotfixes from Internet for NT, IIS, Exchange, SQL 
and Site Server
- Install NT Workstation/Server hotfixes to remote machines
- Download multiple hotfixes at the same time
- Install hotfixes to multiple machines at the same time
- Export report to text, comma-separated or HTML format
- New "Hotfix Profiles" that allow the administrator to query 
their NT systems for security vulnerabilities
- New scripting that allows administrators to create their own 
query scripts
- View Knowledge Base article from within application in new HTML 
viewer window
- Now with detailed information on all hotfixes including what 
they fix!
- New hotfix recommendation feature

An exciting new feature is the "Hotfix Profiles." You can make a 
profile that you can test against your machines and see if they 
pass or fail the profile test. For example, you can create a 
Y2K profile and test all of your machines against this profile 
to determine which are Y2K compliant. 

The price for SPQuery version 3.0 is $189 for Single Machine License 
and $595 for Corporate Site License. For a trial-version, click your
way to http://www.sunbelt-software.com/spquery.htm

5. "HINTS AND TIPS - TIME SAVERS AND OTHER GOODIES...

This is a good one!

"We just got through an agonizing SP4 upgrade on our domain 
controllers. We have been slowly testing SP4 on stand-alone 
servers and workstations and the upgrade has gone well. 
However, we "blew-up" the domain when we installed SP4 on our 
domain controllers. After a telephone support call to MS, and 
being put in touch with a "Domain Engineer" we were able to 
finally resolve the problem. 

"Based on what we have learned, I would like to submit the 
following information and detailed process for successful SP4 
upgrades on domain controllers:

"1) - If you are using WINS, delete LMHOSTS files on your domain 
controllers, or at least double check the entries to ensure that 
they are correct. SP4 now does not revert to resolving names 
through WINS if an entry is in the LMHOSTS file and is preloaded 
(using the #PRE switch). Refer to Microsoft's support article 
Q195672 at 
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q195/6/72.asp 
2) - Install SP4 on your backup domain controllers first.
3) - Promote one of your BDCs to primary domain controller. 
(Note: You may need to be logged on locally to one of the BDCs 
in order to promote it to PDC. SP4 changes several security 
parameters that may prevent you from doing the promotion from 
another workstation or stand-alone server using Server Manager.)
4) - Install SP4 on your (former) primary domain controller.
5) - Re-promote your (former) PDC back to primary domain controller.
This process has proven to be effective in rolling out SP4 
successfully on domain controllers.

Submitted by Kort Black. Thanks!

7. "Y2K WATCH" Only 250 days to Jan 1, 2000 


AIR TRAFFIC COMPUTERS PASS Y2K TEST

The U.S. air traffic control system passed a live test to see if it 
could cope with the Y2K glitch. This was a live drill. Some of the
results:

As clocks on test systems at the airport clicked toward the pretend 
witching hour of midnight on December 31, 1999, an air traffic 
controller and the pilot of an FAA plane on its final approach to 
the airport held a conversation that bridged the gap of the new 
century.

"Convair three-niner, Denver approach" the controller said. "Time is 
one minute prior to entering the new millennium in our test systems. 
How do you read this transmission?" 
The pilot replied: "Loud and clear, and if we disappear off the 
screen, it means we went into the next millennium." 
A minute later, after the clocks read January 1, 2000, the controller 
called back, "You are now flying in the Year 2000 in our test system. 
How do you read this transmission?" 
The pilot replied, "It's loud and clear. It went right through the 
sound barrier very nicely."
