Chapter 15, Lesson 1
Windows NT Server 4.0 Licensing
1. What Is a Client Access License?
A. Each client that accesses any file and print service requires a CAL
(provides the legal right for a computer to access a computer running
Windows NT Server).
B. CALs are purchased separately from operating systems.
C. CALs are managed by the Licensing program in Control Panel and by
License Manager on the Administrative Tools (Common) menu.
D. Licensing is based upon the number of client connections to
computers running Windows NT Server.
Instructor Note: With the Microsoft BackOffice licensing model, Windows NT
Server and client computers are licensed separately.
2. The Licensing Modes
A. Per Seat licensing is required for each client computer to access any
Windows NT server.
1. It will not stop clients from connecting if the maximum number of
connections is reached.
B. In Per Server licensing, if the number of simultaneous connections has
exceeded the license limit, no additional computers can connect to the
C. If clients need access to more than one server, use Per Seat licensing.
1. You can perform a one-way, one-time switch from Per Server to Per
D. If you have multiple servers and the total number of CALs needed for
access is equal to or greater than the number of clients, choose Per
3. Licensing Administration
A. Use the Licensing program in Control Panel to change the licensing
mode (Per Server vs. Per Seat).
B. Administrative tools to track licenses:
1. Licensing program in Control Panel.
2. License Manager program on the Administrative Tools (Common)
C. You can select any Microsoft BackOffice product, not just Windows NT.
1. For Per Server licensing, use the Add licenses option to add concurrent
D. The Replication option allows you to manage replication to other
Instructor Note: Replication allows licensing information to be stored on a
E. If you select Per Seat licensing, use License Manager in the
Administrative Tools (Common) group.
4. License Replication
A. Provides a centralized database for licensing information.
B. To configure licensing replication, start the Licensing program in
Control Panel, and then click the Replication button.
C. You determine who will hold the replication database and how often it
will be updated.
5. License Manager
Instructor Note: Access License Manager through the Administrative Tools
(Common) menu of Programs on the Start menu.
A. License Manager is used to manage Per Seat licensing and usage and
perform the one-time, one-way change from Per Server to Per Seat
mode for qualifying BackOffice products.
B. You can view clients by:
1. Products View tab to view just their licenses.
2. Clients tab to survey both licensed and unlicensed product usage.
3. Purchase History tab to view the product purchasing date, product
quantity, and identify the product administrator.
4. Server Browser tab to view servers in a domain or organization.
C. You can add CALs in License Manager.
D. License groups should be used when many people use one computer
or when one person uses multiple computers.
1. The license group has CALs assigned to it (based on the number of
2. Users in the group share the licenses.

Clients Included with Windows NT Server
6. Clients Included with Windows NT Server
A. Windows NT Server includes the following:
1. Microsoft Network Client 3.0 for MS-DOS and Windows.
2. Microsoft LAN Manager 2.2c Client.
3. Microsoft LAN Manager 2.2c for OS/2.

Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)-32 add-on.
2 Microsoft Windows NT Technical Support, Chapter 15
Instructor Note: You have to pay for the clients you use. They are not free just
because the client software is on the installation compact disc.
7. Microsoft Network Client 3.0 for MS-DOS and Windows
A. Provides connectivity to 16-bit operating systems.
B. Supports NetBEUI, Internetwork Packet Exchange (IPX), TCP/IP, and
data link control (DLC) protocols.
C. Does not support WINS or DHCP.
D. Has a full redirector.
Instructor Note: The full redirector lets clients log on to a domain and utilize
logon scripts, use Remote Access Service (RAS) version 1.1, use messaging,
and use interprocess communication mechanisms such as named pipes, remote
process calls (RPC), and Windows Sockets (WinSock).
E. Cannot browse.
F. Requires a Windows for Workgroups-based or a Windows NT-based
computer on the same workgroup to help with resource location.
8. LAN Manager 2.2c Clients
A. Supports 16-bit operating systems.
B. Supports NetBEUI, TCP/IP, and DLC, but not IPX.
C. Does not support WINS or DHCP.
D. LAN Manager for MS-DOS supports the Remoteboot service.
9. Microsoft Windows 95
A. Supports NetBEUI, IPX/SPX, and TCP/IP protocols.
B. Provides WINS, DHCP, and DNS support.
C. Uses 32-bit protected mode drivers with the WinNet32 application
programming interface (API).
Chapter 15, Lesson 3
Network Client Administrator
10. Network Client Administrator
A. What is Network Client Administrator?
1. Installs network client software by creating a network installation startup
disk or an installation disk set.
2. Shares the installation files contained on the Windows NT Server 4.0
3. Copies the folders and files contained on the Windows NT Server 4.0
compact disc to a network server and shares them.
B. Network Client Administrator is located on the Administrative Tools
(Common) menu, which you access by clicking the Start menu and
then pointing to Programs. The following options appear:
1. Make Network Installation Startup Disk.
Microsoft Windows NT Technical Support, Chapter 15 3
(a) This disk connects and automatically installs any of the clients
2. Make Installation Disk Set.
(a) Set manually installs MS-DOS, LAN Manager, and OS/2.
3. Use the network installation startup disk to share files from the Windows
NT compact disc.
4. Copy Client-based Network Administration Tools.
5. View Remoteboot Client Information.
(a) Remoteboot is a Windows NT service.
(b) It is used to start a Windows 3.x, Windows 95, or MS-DOS
computer over the network.
(c) It is installed through the Network program in Control Panel.
Instructor Note: Remoteboot is used for security reasons in
current networks: without a hard drive, employees can’t
electronically remove information. As a cost consideration in
early networking days, Remoteboot was also used to limit the
number of disk drives needed.
11. Network Installation Startup Disks
Instructor Note: To create a network installation startup disk, choose Make Network
Installation Startup Disk in the Network Client Administrator dialog box.
A. Specify the path of the client files.
1. Copy the files to a share or share the files directly from the compact
B. Configure the target workstations.
1. Specify the type of client and the network adapter settings.
12. Configuring a Network Startup Disk
A. Specify the computer name and user name.
B. Supply the domain name.
C. Specify the network protocol, and if using TCP/IP, the addressing
D. Provide the destination path where the files should be copied, such
13. Creating an Installation Disk Set
A. An installation disk is used to manually install the following client
software: Microsoft Network Client 3.0 for MS-DOS and Windows, LAN
Manager for MS-DOS and OS/2; RAS for MS-DOS; TCP/IP-32 for
Windows for Workgroups.
B. You must make separate disk sets for each network client or service.

Client-based Network Administration Tools
14. Client-based Network Administration Tools
A. Allow you to manage Windows NT Server from a computer running
either Windows 95 or Windows NT Workstation.
B. Many of the tools are the same, but there are differences between the
tools installed on Windows NT and those installed on Windows 95.
Instructor Note: It is often inconvenient to administer a Windows NT server
from the domain controller. Windows NT Server tools on Windows NT and
Windows 95 workstations will help.
