Crucial Tools in Windows Server 2

The Windows Support Tools assist support personnel and network administrators in handling their networks and troubleshooting difficulties. They are not installed with the Windows operating system; you must install them independently from the Support Tools folder of the Windows operating system CD. This help file offer information on the tools and shortcuts for opening or running these tools. Many Support Tools deliver diagnostic features that are beneficial for troubleshooting Windows operating system configurations. However, because these tools have been planned mostly for system administrators and support personnel, their output may be challenging to examine.

To provide easiness in remote server management, you can download and install Remote Server Administration Tools. Remote Server Administration Tools includes Server Manager, Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-ins, consoles, Windows PowerShell cmdlets and providers, and some command-line tools for handling roles and features that run on Windows Server.

Although Windows PowerShell remote management is allowed by default on Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2012, it is not permitted by default on Windows 8.1 or Windows 8. To run cmdlets that are part of Remote Server Administration Tools against a remote server, run Enable-PSRemoting in a Windows PowerShell session that has been unlocked with elevated user rights on your Windows client computer after installing Remote Server Administration Tools.

Some of the major tools and their functions are listed below:

Adprep:  Extends the Active Directory and updates consents as necessary to prepare a domain for a domain controller that operates a later version of the Windows Server operating system than the current domain controllers in the domain.

Bcdedit: It is a command-line tool for managing BCD stores. It can be used for a variety of purposes, including making new stores, changing existing stores and adding boot menu parameters. BCD Edit serves basically the same purpose as Bootcfg.exe on earlier versions of Windows, but with two major improvements: Represents a wider range of boot parameters than Bootcfg.exe and has enhanced scripting support.

Dir: Displays a list of a directory’s files and subdirectories. If used without parameters, dir displays the disk’s volume label and serial number, followed by a list of directories and documents on the disk. For files, dir shows the name extension and the size in bytes. Additionally, it displays the total number of documents and directories listed, their cumulative size, and the free space (in bytes) remaining on the disk.
