4-0 out of 5 stars Good reference on Linux subsystems, not a book for starters
This book is not for Linux (kernel) newbies but for those who already know their way around the kernel and seek detailed info on certain parts of it. This book has some good overviews on different subsystems of the Linux kernel. Some sections, like USB, have been expanded since the second edition of this book. I would have liked to see a section on the new 2.6 scheduler.
1-0 out of 5 stars Not useful for a normal coder looking to learn Unix drivers.
If you are trying to learn how to write Linux Device drivers from scratch, this is probably not the book for you. I believe I am somewhat C/C++ savvy, and I expect sample code that is less than 10 lines of code to compile correctly.
1-0 out of 5 stars Don't even read the free online version
This book was so badly written that I just couldn't help writing my first review on Amazon. I NEVER bothered writting reviews.

5-0 out of 5 stars Magic bullet for quick DNS fixes/receipies
If you need to understand the difference between BIND 9 or Windows AD DNS and BIND 8, this is not the book for you. But if your management decides to tell you about the imporant new product launch on 20 servers in a new domain they just bought and kept under wraps to stun the competition which they need implemented in some novel way that requires a DNS twist, THIS will save you.
5-0 out of 5 stars A 'MUST HAVE' for new DNS Administrators
This book has turned out to be the best investment I've made so far in my 20 year IT career. I've always trusted O'Reilly books for their detailed accuracy. However, for the task at hand, I didn't need a book to explain WHY things work... I needed one to tell me how to GET them to work. This book was perfect! It doesn't replace the DNS and BIND, 4th Edition, but is a great compliment... Actually, I'm finding the 4th Edition a perfect compliment to the Cookbook.

4-0 out of 5 stars A NICE PROBLEM-SOLVING ORIENTATION
"DNS & BIND Cookbook" is a problem-solving text, which Network Administrators will be glad to read. It displayed utmost rationality in its simple and concise way of dealing with most problems, which arise from Domain Name Systems. It also exposed all the factors, which are likely to escalate Berkeley Internet Name Domain problems, before providing their remedies in a clear sequential order.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Very Useful, but it's Hit-and-Miss
Because this is a "cookbook," it gives you recipies -- step-by-step instructions for performing specific tasks.
5-0 out of 5 stars Succinct and clear to understand . . .
A well-organised and clearly written collection of useful commands and solutions to help one along with the often exasperating arcana of Linux. Covers all flavours and is a 'must have' book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect binding keeps the book open at the desired page
... which comes in real handy considering how often I reference it.

Editorial Review

The Domain Naming System (DNS) is a glorious thing. It takes familiar Internet network and machine names (like "amazon.com") and converts them to Internet Protocol (IP) addresses (like "208.35.218.15") that are meaningful to routers and therefore useful for identifying the machine you want to reach. What's amazing is that DNS enables someone in Germany to refer, by name, to a computer in Mongolia even if no one in Germany has ever accessed the distant machine before. It's pretty much self-configuring, too: No human effort in Germany is necessary to make the Mongolian machine reachable by name. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Well Presented Concepts and Implementations (5th ed.)
Foreword: I have been running my own DNS servers on OpenBSD and FreeBSD for about 4 years. All of my previous DNS knowledge was obtained from the man pages and online tutorials. 5-0 out of 5 stars Most comprehensive book on DNS and Bind
First off, the most recent edition of this book was published in May 2006, so all reviews prior to that are discussing previous editions of this book.
4-0 out of 5 stars Informative, but not as clear as it could be
I found this book to be informative, but I sometimes had trouble understanding what they where saying.I found The Concise Guide to DNS and BIND by Nicolai Langfeldt to be more understandable in some places.If you have a good grasp of other parts of unix system administration, this book would most likely be fine. If you are more of a beginner and only want one book, get The Concise Guide.However, I recommend getting both, because they supplement each other very well. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars TCP/IP Fundamentals
This book covers the in's and out's of TCP/IP with a Unix focus. Non-Unix users will find this book equally useful as the Unix user, in that it presents the information in a format that is easy to follow as well as comprehensive.
5-0 out of 5 stars Cannot Live Without
Though this book is oriented to UNIX, I find it tremendously useful as a Windows administrator.Core concepts gleamed from thisbook has catapulted me greatly into my career, and allowed me to solve complex networking problems and avert major disasters.
2-0 out of 5 stars this book is terrible

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed about the installation instructions.
The big reason why I purchased this book was because it claimed it was great about security and it said it would show how to setup these services the correct way.
3-0 out of 5 stars Not Focused
I read every column of paranoid penguin and they are quite good.This book is ok, but not great.They (I mean they because several chapters are not by Mike) try to cover a huge amount of information and make the mistake of being both too broad in some areas and too specific in others.Overall, there wasn't a cohesive glue to bring the chapters together into a single vision.

Even with 10.4 out this is still the number one book on Mac OS X server there is. Period. Bartosh goes deep in to all areas of OS X server and provides excellent examples for you to follow. This book has saved my hide on a number of occasions and I can't wait to see what he comes up with next. If you only buy one OS X server book this is it.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a "must-have" book for all level users related to Apple systems administration.
This book is organized into seven parts and one appendix: from new system installation to remote management and different kind of clients supported.
5-0 out of 5 stars Best MacOS X Server book
For those who are familiar with MacOS X and would like to learn the server-side of the equation, this book is it. Apple's documentation has been sparse and this book covers that deficiency with great aplomb. This is the best Mac OS X Server book on the market right now. Too bad O'Reilly just cancelled the Tiger version because I would have first in line for the next edition.

This book is just what I was looking for.Excellent Security Guide to day to day security issues at my workplace.Information about TPC and UDP ports and their security risks have been very useful.
2-0 out of 5 stars Order a wrong edition
I saw that there is a bargain of another paperback edition on the page of 3rd edition, so I didn't recheck whether it is 3rd edition. So I end up in buying 2 books, 2nd and 3rd editions, because I need the 3rd edition for my class. It would be better to put edition number up in the page, not only paperback or library binding!

5-0 out of 5 stars Another Good Interview Guide
This is another good book in the Job Interview series from Rampant.As with the other books, this book gives both the employer and the candidate guidance in areas such as work experience, personal appearance and education.
2-0 out of 5 stars too general to be useful
The advice on interviewing is very general and can be found to the same detail with google. The advice is all useful, but it's not worth the price and the style is a little goofy for what I expected to be a more professional book.
1-0 out of 5 stars Rigidly conventional
This book is full of uptight opinions and puts the job candidate under the magnifying glass. It is almost impossible to please the author. You have to wear a bussiness suit(only white shirt is acceptable), if you don't, you may be considered disrespectful. Knowing the klingon language may indicate a personality disorder!! Let's get serious.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very useful and accessible.
UNIX administration is notoriously difficult and sophisticated because one has to understand many things in their complexity. This books does not provide the complete coverage but there is no book that possibly could. If you found yourself struggling and having a difficulty with reading this one it means you need more background with UNIX to deal with administration. I found here on Amazon "UNIX Essentials" DVD that is complete UNIX course recorded and it can bring you to the point you will be able to work with book like that.
5-0 out of 5 stars The very best UNIX System Administration book.
I have seem many different UNIX SA books, but this one is the very best.It covers all the important topics and concepts, and has detailed examples for everything the author discusses.This book is very easy to read and follow.

I'm not sure what the 1-star reviewer's problem is.Who wants to wade through MAN pages for hours?The whole reason I buy books is to compile the information in one handy place.This is a useful source to fill in general holes in your knowledge.If you already know this stuff cold, I'm not sure why you'd be interested in the book at all (either to praise or pan.)Bottom line: good, general book for those who want to bootstrap themselves. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Good at juxtaposing the Windows and Unix way of doing things
This is one of my all time favorite books because it covers an important subject of integrating Windows and UNIX systems on the same network. The picture on the book's cover shows a rock climber straddling two vertical cliffs, a perfectly appropriate metaphor for the daunting task of maintaining interoperability.5-0 out of 5 stars Everything you need to know is here
As a long time MCSE and CNE, my clients with UNIX have wanted me to help them integrate NT with UNIX. Prior to finding this book I was hesitant, but after reading it it didn't seem so complicated and should lead to increasedrevenue. Most recommended if you want to make more money by doing your jobbetter without the usual nightmares. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The reference to have if you administer multiple *NIX systems
Solaris, Unix, Aix, Linux, and other variations of *NIX systems have more in common than they do differences when it comes to system administration.The primary goal of this book is to provide a administrative resource that is as useful to the AIX administrator as it is to the Linux administrator.The book starts with a chapter on what you should do if you end up working on a *NIX system that you did not install.It provides both information and specific items to check in order to document and understand exactly how it is set up.From there the book moves to basic scripts that can be used to automate administration.The rest of the book covers such items as baselining, maintenance, backup, new system setup, test system creation, and secure systems.Chapter 5 is particularly useful as the author discusses the boot process and init states of the various flavors of *NIX.If you are used to one particular *NIX system and end up administering another one you will want this book at hand just because it spells out some of the differences as well as the similarities and this could prevent a major mistake (such as switching to init 5 on a Solaris system which shuts it down when you are trying to initiate a graphical interface which is what it would do on a Linux system).The Unix/Linux Survival Guide is highly recommended to anyone who has to work on multiple versions of *NIX or is used to one version and needs to understand how to administer another one.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Quick Handy Guide of What You Really Need to Know
At only 320 pages, this is one of the smaller Unix/Linux book you're likely to get. That's because it has left out an awful lot of the details about things that you aren't likely to use. The author, writing from a couple of decades of experience, looks at the things that you'll need to do from the beginning. Then if you have special needs, there's probably a specialized manual available on just that special feature.
5-0 out of 5 stars Keep It Simple Administrator
Unlike a 1000+ page Unix/Linux admin guide that will take you hours to find the most basic thing, this text is easy to follow, read and find quick relevant information about the following set of topics:

5-0 out of 5 stars I hate to give 5 stars to any book - but it's deserved!
This book is fun and functional as a desktop reference.If you use Unix systems, you need this book in your short reach library.It covers a bit about the history of the systems, but doesn't bloviate.It's just straightfoward information delivered in colorful and memorable fasion.The book covers System V, Unix, BSD, Linux, all the basics.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy for Novice toUnderstand
I just started a new Sys Admin job and have to learn UNIX System Administration for the first time.I find this book to be very easy to follow.

5-0 out of 5 stars Used to be "The Red Book"--a must for the sys admin bookshelf.
When asked about what book a junior unix sys admin should purchase first to begin building their technical library, I would always tell them to "get the red book."Now that the third edition is purple, people still refer to it as the red book, and get funny looks from their peers.This book, because it has input from so many authors, has compiled the most comprehensive cross platform unix reference I have encountered.I refer to this book when dealing with an aspect of unix on multiple vendor platforms for implementation tips and just to see the differences in how it works on each flavor of unix.There's now one out for Linux as well, I understand, and that will soon be gracing my shelves. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Very Solaris centric
I primarly use *BSD and was hoping to learn about NFS/NIS from this book, more than what I had already gleaned from the man pages.However this book is very heavily geared towards the Solaris OS.It does give exlamples of where the filename(s) or folder structures under a different flavor of Unix would be, but exept for these small tables, the rest of the text uses only the Solaris names/folders.

5-0 out of 5 stars A note from one of the co-authors
Hello, My name is Mike Eisler, and I am one of the5-0 out of 5 stars NFS, NIS and automounter, a great combonation!
Anyone who has ever administered a network of at least 3-4 servers (if not more) will find individually updating accounts, software and such to be a burden.I found myself in this situation not too long ago, and then I picked up this book, and found the answers I was looking for.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Should have been called "Cfengine"
Most of the book is about Cfengine, so if you're only looking at automating tasks on 1-3 servers, you may end up using only 1/3 of the book.But I must say the content is relevant and well written.

4-0 out of 5 stars Automation for larger networks
I see that most of the reviewers didn't like this as much as I did.That may be because they are home users or have small networks - I think this is very useful for the admins of larger systems (though it may not be useful for VERY large systems).
5-0 out of 5 stars Wow!A Monumental Achievement!
If you do *ANY* Unix/Linux system administration (from just maintaining your own desktop machine on up to the big-time), and automating some (or most) aspects of UNIX/Linux system administration sounds at all interesting to you, then stop wasting your time reading this review, and *IMMEDIATELY* go purchase this book!Really!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book!
This is the best DNS book I have read to date for supporting Windows 2000 DNS. If you can only afford one book on Windows 2000 DNS , this is the one to have, Paul and Cricket's knowledge and experience with DNS and Bind far exceeds all others! 5-0 out of 5 stars Very well explained by experienced DNS people
I needed to get a grasp on DNS generally, and was told "DNS and BIND" was the best book existing. Unfortunately it was too fat a book for me. It spent too much time on BIND which was of no interest for me. Luckily I dicovered a slimmer version called "DNS on Windows NT" by the same authors. A fresh MCSE on NT4, I was really happy for this title. Full of expectations I started reading. And I was not dissapointed. It was like finding an easily accessible gold mine.So if you need knowledge on DNS generally, or onDNS on Windows NT4 specifically, don't hesitate. Buy this book!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good book
Last several days I was seriously thinking about setup a MS DNS for my LAN.I could only found very littleinformation on the internet about set up a MS DNS. But this book helped me to fulfill what I looked for.Especially CNAME & MX records. ... Read more
