****************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/2000 and help you to pass your certification exams.

Via (separate) NTools E-NewsFlashes we will send you important 
breaking news like new service packs, killer viruses, etc. Sunbelt 
Software is the first and largest distributor worldwide of Third 
Party System Management Tools for Windows NT.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

1. "EDITORS CORNER" 

Hi NT-ers,

Three topics in the Editor's Corner:

1) As you have read in the NewsFlash of last Thursday, the amount
of NT related news gets so large that it is better we update you 
more often. The normal NTools E-News Issues will continue to come
out every two weeks but you will receive more NewsFlash issues
during the week. 

One of your colleague subscribers Luis Machado, put it like this:
" I appreciate that you stepped up the frequency of news-flash, 
instead of giving a much lengthier compilation. I have time to 
read a 5-min e-mail every day  better than a lengthy letter 
once in a "blue moon". Keep it up!"

OK Louis, we'll keep up the good work :-)
---------------

2) Somewhere the coming week I will send you a NewsFlash with
something really exciting I have been working on for the last 
year(!) It's been a special project, and it was very hard to keep 
quiet about it, let me tell you. When you see what it is, you'll
be surprised. I'll have to keep you in a mystery for just a few 
more days though.
---------------

3) [DRUMROLL] And here are the Winners of the. . . [TRUMPETS]

*** NTOOLS E-NEWS 1999 TARGET AWARDS! ***

This was a very interesting vote. Tons of you took the time
to show the rest of the community which tools you preferred.
The results have been in some cases VERY surprising. All winners
will get a very nice plexiglass/chrome award with the product
name engraved and will be authorized to use the especially
designed logo on their websites. Want to see who won the 
'OSCAR' in their category with what percentage? Check this out! 

http://www.sunbelt-software.com/1999final.htm

Here are some short comments per category. We'd like to note that 
this is a non-scientific vote, as the universe of voters is not
random. Product quality, vendor support and installed base all
play a role here. 

- Availability / Fault-tolerance
68% of you are not using this kind of tool. That is higher than
expected, as this is one of the best selling categories. And for
good reason. Are you ready for the next disaster like 'Floyd'?
Double-Take was the clear winner in this space. 

- Backup
34% of you did not answer this one, likely because the tool you
use was not on the list. Seagate Backup Exec took the overwhelming
lead with a whopping 33.31%. Very impressive results.

- Communications Management 
RAS management is a headache, and NTP's RAS Manager took first
place with 10.25%. Number two was just half of that so RAS manager
is it for this category.

- Disk Defragmentation
In all categories the 'not answered' was the biggest percentage,
except for one. The king of NT disk tools got 51.86% of the votes
and it is no wonder it's Diskeeper! It got almost 4 times more
votes than the runner up Norton Speed Disk. 

- Disk Quota Management
This was a very interesting thing to watch over the last 4 days.
It looks like word of mouth between users was getting around as
NTP's Quota Manager was slightly ahead at first, but then got
soundly defeated by Quota Advisor that takes home the award.
Interesting to see how the others did as well. Check out

http://www.sunbelt-software.com/1999final.htm

- Domain / User Management
A similar situation occurred with Mission Critical's Enterprise
Administrator and MDD's Trusted Enterprise Manager. There were
simply more people in the end that voted for TEM. But 76.36% of
you are not using a tool like this yet. Prepare yourself for one
when your NT domains get larger.

- Event Log Management
Sunbelt only picked up TNT's Event Log manager a month ago, but 
it looks we were right in choosing it. ELM took 9.41% which was 
around 60% more than the numbers 2 and 3 that are extremely close 
to each other: Event Admin and SeNTry.

- Network / Domain Reporting
Big surprise in this area! We completely expected that BindView
would win, as this tool has been on the market for a long time.
But to our astonishment Sunbelt Domain Reporter pulled ahead of
BindView on the last day. They are very close though. We can only
come up with the following reason: Many people must have looked
at both BindView and SDR and chose for the latter, despite the
fact that we have not yet sold much. It's only available for a
few weeks. Sunbelt Domain Reporter gets to go home with the gold.

- Network Monitors
LanExplorer from Intellimax has done it. 7.54% was the number.
The odds were for Network Instrument's Observer as they are 
longer on the market and do a lot of marketing but it seems
that the NTools E-News subscribers liked LanExplorer better.
Kudo's to the people from Intellimax!

- Performance Enhancement
Thanks much for voting overwhelmingly for AutoPilot. Sunbelt 
really appreciates your support. You will get more exciting news
about AutoPilot soon.

- Print Management
The Masters Of Print Management are the Software Shelf people.
They took both the number 1 AND the number 2 spot with Print
Manager Plus and Print Queue manager. The only company that
has the two top spots. Very Well Done :-)

- Remote Control
Industry giant Symantec blew everybody else out of the water.
A whopping 38.81% of the votes went to pcAnywhere and it is 
clear that this is the market leader. There are other good 
tools around but their market shares are dwarfed by Symantec.

- Scripting/Automation
It's very interesting that a dark horse like Opalis Robot took
the lead and kept on going till the end. It certainly looks
that this tool that crosses several categories is popular in
the market. Congratulations Opalis Team. A tool that did not
make it on the ballot, but is an extremely interesting newcomer
is ScriptLogic. http://www.sunbelt-software.com/ntscript.htm
It allows you to automate login scripts in a great way.

- Security 
The Big Kahuna was L0phtCrack with 13.31% of the votes. It helps
this is a free download obviously, and has been around for quite
a while. Sunbelt recently ran it on our own network and we were
very unhappy with the ease some of our passwords could be cracked.
Recommended!

- Software Distribution
Netinstall nudged ahead of WinInstall, but it was extremely close.
These two are obviously the big players in the 3-rd party space.
(SMS was not included as it's a MS-tool) Check out the percentages.

http://www.sunbelt-software.com/1999final.htm

- Software Metering
Here were 3 tools that were incredibly close to each other. Express
Meter, ABC LanLicenser3 and Softrack finished within 1.5% points
of each other, so these tools are very much equivalent in strength
apparently. (Microsoft included LanLicenser3 into version 2.0 of
SMS so this may influence the votes somewhat). 

- Storage Management
WQuinn's StorageCeNTral more than doubled the votes of NTP's 
runner-up Storage Management Suite. Highground's SRM came in on
a respectable 3-rd place knowing this is a high-end tool with
less installations. StorageCeNTral outran all of them though,
it includes QuotaAdvisor which runs Microsoft's internal IT
departments disk quotas.

- System/Application monitoring
NetIQ's APPManager Suite took first place, and that was not 
surprising. Good product, professional organization backing it up, 
and an aggressive development schedule. The others were not so
far behind though. Check them out.

- Undelete tools
Exec Software's Undelete took the lead with 16.78%. Well Done!
The Sysinternals Undelete did pretty good too. These types of
tools are an excellent emergency measure.

- User Management 
As expected, Hyena got 3 times more votes than number 2. It's been
on the market for a few years and done pretty well. But new tools
are being created so this segment still is showing healthy growth.
A 'Well Done' for the Adkins Resource team!

The awards will be given at the Microsoft Exchange Conference, 
October 5 at the Sunbelt Booth 751. Come and visit us over there 
and get a free copy of AutoPilot! One more time, here's all of it.

2. "NT RELATED NEWS" 

* MICROSOFT RELEASES BETA OF WIN2K DATACENTER SERVER

As you all know, Win2K's biggest 'flavor' is called Datacenter Server
(DS). MS has shipped the Beta 1 to 300 test sites last Monday. Win2K 
DS has more features than the Advanced Server. Additional details have 
been released about these and this is a short list of the pretty 
impressive power it packs. It will not be released until at least 3 or
4 months after the general release of Win2K.

- Much more robust hardware compatibility testing.
- Faster I/O performance using Winsock Direct.
- 4-node clustering
- Up to 32 CPU's Symmetric Multi processing
- Up to 32 GIG RAM
- Up to 32 Nodes network load balancing
- API's for the cluster, job object and network load balancing
- The Process Control Manager that I told you about earlier
- A facility that allows you to do a rolling upgrade with three
nodes in the cluster running while you upgrade software on the 4-th.

Looks pretty good. If they can get this running in a stable and 
reliable way we are getting to an environment where you can actually 
sleep at night ;-) And Release Candidate of Win2K also went out, so
that looks like they are moving along. The schedule is still slipping.
I now hear things between December 99 and February 2000. We'll believe
it when we see it.
-------------------------------- 

* MICROSOFT EXCHANGE CONFERENCE COMING UP SOON

The Microsoft Exchange Conference is October 4-7 at the Georgia World
Conference Center in Atlanta, GA. Sunbelt Software and lots of other
companies will be there, and MS will announce some very interesting stuff
that I cannot talk about yet. Be prepared for some BIG NEWS regarding
platinum though. This show is worth it. Check it out on the MS Website
and then visit Sunbelt Software at Booth 751 to get your free copy of
AutoPilot: NTools E-News Target Award Winner 1999. Check out:

3. NT THIRD PARTY NEWS

* HOW WILL YOU DEAL WITH YOUR OWN 'FLOYD' DISASTER?

It's been rough lately. Hurricane Floyd messed up a lot of businesses.
A large EDS datacenter in (I think it was New Jersey) was flooded 
and a whole bunch of ATM's did not work anymore. One more example
of the ABSOLUTE NECESSITY to have your Disaster Recovery scenario
in place and operating, before possible Y2K confusion hits.
Disasters can take down systems, burn dollars and ultimately destroy 
your business -- unless you've got a solid backup and recovery plan.

Double-Take is now the acknowledged market leader: High Availability
and Disaster Recovery in-one. You can do two things: 1) download the
30-day eval right now from http://www.sunbelt-software.com/dtake.htm

2) NSI Software in conjunction with Dell Computer invites you to see 
their HIGH AVAILABILITY and DISASTER RECOVERY presentations at this 
years Microsoft Exchange Conference '99 in Atlanta, GA (October 4-7). 
Presentations on NSI Software's award winning application Double-Take
will be given in the Dell Computer Booth. NSI will be giving away 
free "When once a night just isn't enough" T-shirts while supplies
last. Another reason to hit that show ;-)
-------------------------------- 

* DRAMATIC PRICE REDUCTION FOR SUPERDISK AND SUPERCACHE

Developer EEC Systems has seen their volumes go up so they are ready
for the next phase: reduce pricing so that volumes go up even higher.
SuperDisk creates a RAMdisk in memory that behaves as any NT hard disk.
Can speed up your box big time. Runs very good on NT Terminal Server
and you can even load the full PageFile in memory. That means 'paging
at memory speed' and a faster machine. Here is a customer describing 
the results:

?Converted an 83 MB Database over the weekend. After 14 hours on 
PII450-230 meg ram, Seagate SCSI ultra wide 7200rpm HDD, less than 
50% of the Database was converted. With your software and a 100 MB 
RamDisk, on the same machine, it took just on an hour for 100% complete 
job. Close to 30 times faster! Made me a very happy person.?
- Paul Rosser, Web Wheels -

The new prices that are valid from September 27, 1999 are:

Product Price US$
RamDisk-NT workstation only (<150MB) 55
SuperDisk-NT V4 Workstation 185 
SuperDisk-NT V4 Server- 1 CPU 619 
SuperDisk-NT V4 Server- 2 CPUs 1,495 
SuperDisk-NT V4 Server- 4 CPUs 1,865 


SuperCache-NT V4 Workstation 185 
SuperCache-NT V4 Server- 1 CPU 619 
SuperCache-NT V4 Server- 2 CPU's 1,495 
SuperCache-NT V4 Server- 4 CPU's 1,865 

You can download eval copies at: 
SuperDisk: http://www.sunbelt-software.com/sdnt.htm
SuperCache: http://www.sunbelt-software.com/scache.htm
-------------------------------- 

* BRAND NEW TOOL TO COPY SECURELY

Secure Copy allows you as an administrator to copy files 
and directories on NTFS partitions while keeping the security 
intact, creating shares, and migrating local groups. All of 
this functionality is available in an easy to use GUI, which 
keeps you updated on copy progress, as well as any errors 
that may occur. Useful tool when you have to move data and
users to another server.

Important Features:

Retain security while you copy - If you use NT Explorer or the 
copy and xcopy commands to copy files, the file permissions 
are not copied with the file. Another utility allows you to 
copy files and directories _with_ security, but it does not 
create existing shares and migrate local groups like SecureCopy.

- Create shares while copying - Now you have the option to 
migrate existing shares on the source server to the destination 
server, while using Secure Copy. As Secure Copy copies each 
folder, it first checks to see if that folder is shared. If so, 
Secure Copy will create the share on the destination server 
and copy the permissions to the share. This outstanding feature 
makes Secure Copy worth the investment. 

- Migrate local groups while copying - Secure Copy is the only 
tool available that will migrate local groups while copying 
files. A local group is local to the machine it was created on. 
If a local group has permissions on a file in your source server, 
Secure Copy will create the local group on the destination server 
and modify the permissions list on the destination file to reflect 
the newly created local group. If you were to use the "scopy.exe" 
program in the NT resource kit, every local group would appear 
as "Account Unknown" in the destination file's permissions list. 
If the local group name already exists on the destination server, 
you can be prompted for a new name or select a prefix or postfix 
naming convention 

Full Command Line Support - Secure Copy is now fully functional 
directly from the command line. Full command line documentation 
is available with the help file included with the trial download. 

As you can understand, this is a tool you only use now and then.
So there is no 30-day eval download as this would basically be 
giving the product away. BUT, the full purchase price is only 
$295 for a single copy and you can get that right now via the 
Sunbelt OnLine Shop with immediate electronic delivery and 
unconditional 30-day money back guarantee. Check it out at: 
http://www.sunbelt-software.com/securecopy.htm
-------------------------------- 

* INTERESTING NEW SITE JOINS WWW: BRAINBUZZ 

BrainBuzz.com, a new Tampa FL based new virtual community was 
recently launched at the Networld+Interop ?99 Exhibition in 
Atlanta. It is a pretty good place online for IT pro's to get 
the latest tech intelligence, find the best jobs and interact 
with your peers. I went to visit them last month and it's a
fun team.

BrainBuzz.com also includes communities for network engineers 
(formerly extracheez.com), software developers and Java develo-
pers. New sites are being planned. One of the cool features of 
BrainBuzz.com is the hundreds of technical discussion boards 
focused on everyday issues and problems. 

BrainBuzz.com?s employment site serves _just_ the IT industry.
They prohibits staffing companies and employment agencies from 
using the service or searching the resume database. This saves 
the candidate troubling phone calls and provides anonymity from 
aggressive recruiters and headhunters. It's worth checkin' out. 
http://www.BrainBuzz.com
-------------------------------- 

* HIGH LEVEL BUG TRACKING LIST: NTBUGTRAQ

If you want to be kept up to date about bugs, security exploits
and the background of these vulnerabilities, there is a pretty
good list server you should subscribe to. It is called the 
NTBUGTRAQ list and also has its own website. They are almost at
30,000 subscribers and I promised Russ (the list manager) that
I would mention it and we'd be able to break that number easily.

So now, do not let me have egg on my face here! 
http://ntbugtraq.ntadvice.com/
-------------------------------- 

* BEST NT INSIDER NEWSLETTER: ClieNT Server NEWS 

As opposed to the NTBUGTRAQ, this one is not for free. It actually
costs money to subscribe (novel idea) but it's worth it when you 
are in the industry. ClieNT Server NEWS has no pictures, no ads.

The report facts and real news, not modified press releases. These
guys find news that you will not see in the Wall Street Journal 
or next week's Business Week. They deliver it every Friday via
email and/or html. I'm subscribed myself.

For people who need to keep track of the surge in product and 
company announcements. You can find the proverbial needle in a 
haystack that might be your best friend (if you get to it first) 
or your worst nightmare (if your competitors get there first). 
You can make sure that you grasp the big picture as it unfolds. 

Why are these guys different from the rest? 
- Daily contacts at the highest levels of every company in 
the industry. They have even been accused of having "bugs" in 
the boardrooms of nearly every company in computing.
- No other publication breaks more news. Week after week. 
- An accuracy rate on "unannounced" news that is unchallenged.
- Worldwide coverage.

Call them at 516-759-7025, email: [email protected], or web:
http://www.g2news.com/csnindex.html . $595 per year and worth it.

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

If your organization needs to do something similar to this newsletter
for their customers, this is a good book recommendation. 

Poor Richard's E-mail Publishing
http://www.poorrichard.com/email/

It's for anyone who is interested in learning the "tips from the 
pros" about using list servers for email publishing. This is the 
first book I have seen of its kind, with detailed advice on email 
publishing, and as often occurs with the first book on a topic, 
it's pioneering and quite good.

The Mac-NT mailing list is for those of you in the IT community 
who need to efficiently support MacOS users connected to your NT 
network, including the special dual fork Mac files. We also welcome 
MacOS users who need to integrate their beloved machines into an NT
