comment How do you reboot a server when you are not local to it?
I shutdown with the usual Start->Shutdown->Reboot method and in the rare case that it fails I just use shutdown. No need for batch files. shutdown /? will show you the /m parameter which allows you to shutdown from another machine that network access.

Dennis the docs are here: microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/… There is just a bit more there than query /?. I use qwinsta more often.

comment Useful Command-line Commands on Windows
netsh seems like a really powerful command, but I have not really been able to work with it. What do people really use it for?
