Microsoft's official enterprise support blog for AD DS and more
Hi. This is Jim from Directory Services. I spend a great deal of time working through remote Easy Assist / Live Meeting sessions, sometimes with client machines half way round the globe and the latency can be excruciating.
In my experience I have found that using the CMD line as well as START - RUN to launch administrative tools can be a more expedient way to do system administration. Using the mouse and clicking repeatedly to launch an administrative interface is not always the most efficient, especially in an extremely latent remote session. An errant click will always do you in. To this end I felt the need to create a one stop “short cut” reference to launch some of the more popular administrative applets. This is suitable for pinup in your cube or office. Feel free to commit them all to memory.
