Uptime for Windows 2000, 2003, XP and NT
Almost every unix operating system comes with a utility called uptime that tells you how long your server has been running.
Unfortunitly no such tool comes with windows, but there is a pretty fool proof way to determine the date you computer was last started. Type the following in to the command prompt.
net statistics server
It will output something like:
Server Statistics for \\PETE Statistics since 6/9/2002 11:09 AMThe net command is very useful, it allows you to connect to shares, start services, send messages between computers and more. To learn more about it type:
net helpHere are some examples using the net command.
List all accounts in a domain:
net accounts /DOMAINSend a message to all users in the domain (a text box pops up). Replace /DOMAIN with a username to send to just one user.
net send /DOMAIN "The server is rebooting"Start a service
net start "Service Name"Stop a service
net stop "Service Name"
