As an IT technician, I am often adding new quick tricks to my mental shorcuts list, here are my current top 5:
- Need to log onto a domain as the local PC admin but don’t know the PC name?
Simply use ” .\” at the start of the admin username to log on as a local PC user.
- Powershell if PC has trust relationship
Test-ComputerSecureChannel –Server *dc name* -Verbose
- shutdown /i (-i ) remote shutdown
- Create big dummy file:
Contig -n 2gbEmptyFile.txt 20000000
- For Spooler Crashes, first try below to clear all jobs
net stop spooler
del /S /F “C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS\*”
net start spooler
