Chapter 7:
Command-Line, Support, and
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools 
GUI is good. Command-line is better. What’s in the box is tasty. But add-ons are sweeter. Poetryaside, those lines indicate what this chapter offers. I’ll review how to work with some key WindowsServer 2003 (Windows 2003) tools that offer great benefits – if you know how to use them.I discuss selected command-line tools, support tools, and resource kit tools. From these toolsources, you’ll be able to build a custom toolkit tailored to your environment.
Windows 2003 Built-In Command-Line Tools
The advantage of command-line tools is that you can use them without a GUI. This option is helpfulwhen you use Telnet or, as I discussed in Chapter 6, when you use the Special AdministrationConsole (SAC) through Windows 2003
s Emergency Management Services (EMS). Additionally, sometools can run under a normal user context and are therefore useful inside logon or startup scripts.The downside of command-line tools is the learning curve. The tool names are hard toremember, and the multiple options that the tools offer can be equally baffling. However, althoughcommand-line tools can be cumbersome, their benefits typically outweigh their drawbacks.When it comes to Windows 2003, the Microsoft development team got command-line tools right.Although not all GUI options are scriptable, those that are scriptable are well implemented andequally well documented.To get a list of the command-line utilities available in Windows 2003, open the Help and SupportCenter and locate the
Command-line reference A-Z 
, which Figure 7.1 shows. (Notice, however, thatthe last tool in the alphabet is Xcopy. Perhaps Windows 2006 will have commands that start withY and Z.)
