What are the minimum services needed to run NT 4.0 server? In the case where one has to install a service pack or attempt to do a thorough backup using Ntbackup. This keeps coming up and I can not find much documentaion on the subject. Thanks.

Minimum services I would want to have running are: Computer Browser, Event Log, License Logging (optional), Messenger, Net Logon, NT LM Security Support Provider (required for some other services that you might want to have running like WINS or DHCP), Protected Storage, Server, Spooler, TCP/IP NetBios Helper (required for other services) and Workstation. Then, depending upon what other services are installed and what the role of the server is, you might need to have other services running, butthat is, I think, about the minimum to just have the server up and running and do a backup. Hope this helps!
