Hi, could someone please let me know how well Windows NT 4.0 runs on an AS400. What is performance like? Would you recommend it over running NT on an INTEL server

Hmm not sure about the brand new Iseries, think it may be possible to run NT in native mode. It will now for sure run UNIX & I THink LINUX.

The old machines NT used to run on the Integrated PC Server, which is a card bolted into the AS/400. However you are still not running the machine as an NT type unit. the main operating system is still OS/400.

Performance is fine depending of course on the overall strength of the AS/400.

Of particular note is the "all under one roof" aspects of data back up. Use the AS/400 disk, use the native backup, etc.

Downside, if the AS/400 only has one Ethernet Card installed, rebooting the NT Server means the Ethernet adaptor goes down as well - effectively disconnecting all of your network AS/400 users...

I have worked on many Integrated PC Servers and have installed a few as well - I think they are fine provided you plan accordingly...
