Microsoft Windows NT 4 Server Admin Tutorial

Microsoft Windows NT 4 Server is a very popular server. Not only is it convenient to use, it is also a stable operating system. NT 4 is excellent in running applications. It has a graphical user environment, allows desktop configuration, is capable of multitasking, and has a large load capacity. You can set it up not only as your primary domain controller, but also as a back-up domain controller or a member server.
