15 Windows Command Prompt Commands to Know as Sysadmin

Best of all, it works even when other Windows components break, making it the best tool for system admins to master. As a system administrator, the Windows command prompt can help you get more information about computers and run automatic commands on multiple computers at once to complete tasks remotely. Whether you want complete information about connected networks, fix file errors, get info about hardware components, or manage volume drives, you can do it all via command prompt. If you are new to using command prompt as a system admin, then I can give you a boost to get started.

How to Mirror (RAID1) Boot GPT Hard Drive on Windows 10/ Server 2016?

We’ll consider a full-featured BCD bootloader configuration that provides correct Windows boot and protects your OS and data in case of any drive failure. So, I have a simple computer with an UEFI architecture and two identical 50GB disks, but without built-in RAID controller. Our task is to install an OS (Windows Server 2016, Windows 10 or a free Hyper-V server) on the first GPT disk and then create a software mirror (RAID1) from two disks.

25 Run Commands in Windows You Should Memorize. Using Run commands in Windows is a very efficient way to access different Windows settings and apps directly.

25 Run Commands in Windows You Should Memorize

If you memorize Run commands, you can access a particular app in just 2 steps instead of many clicks. I personally don’t like frequently reaching out for the mouse; therefore, I have memorized all the required keyboard shortcuts and commands to minimize my interaction with the mouse. And Run commands are core for my day-to-day PC usage to accesses different Windows settings and apps efficiently.

If you are looking to be productive, then I will recommend you to memorize Run commands. To get you started, I will list some of the frequently used commands that I find most useful for day-to-day use. How to open the Run dialog? To use Run commands, you need to know how to open the Run dialog to enter the commands. You can either press the Windows+R keys on the keyboard or right-click on the start menu and select Run from the menu. #1.

Configuring Storage Replica on Windows Server 2016

Volume data are automatically synchronized over your network to a secondary server where the identical copy of your volume will always be available. In Storage Replica, the data are replicated at the block level over the SMB v3.1 protocol independently of the file system type used (NTFS, CSVFS, ReFS). Storage replication in Windows Server 2016 works in Active/Passive mode. It means that the data are available only on the source server. There are two replication modes: Synchronous replication – the data are written to both servers simultaneously. Storage Replica supports the following scenarios: Replication between the local volumes of the server;Server-to-server storage replication;Storage replication in the stretch cluster;Cluster-to-cluster storage replication. How to Create a RAM Disk on Windows Server? A RAM disk is a virtual disk created in a free area of the memory (RAM) that it sees by the OS as a separate physical disk.

How to Create a RAM Disk on Windows Server?

Due to the RAM disk being stored in the fast RAM, all read/write operations on this disk are performed almost instantaneously, even faster than when using an SSD (the data transfer speed of the most productive SSDs is about 560 MB/s, while DDR4 memory – 12,000-25,000 MB/s.) It is recommended to use a RAM disk in systems with an excess of free memory. You can use the RAM disk to place the cache or temporary files of apps/system, temporary SQL databases. Thus you can achieve a significant increase in the applications and databases performance. In Windows OS, there are no integrated tools to create RAM disks, so you have to use third-party software to do it (AMD RAMDisk, ImDisk, PassMark OSFMount, StarWind RAM Disk, etc.).

WDS : Convertir un fichier ESD en WIM

Présentation Tout d'abord, tous mes vœux pour cette année 2018, que vos projets s'accomplissent ! Pour ce premier tutoriel de l'année 2018, on va commencer en douceur, avec une petite astuce. Avec les dernières versions de Windows, l'image d'installation de l'OS est au format ESD et non plus au format WIM. Pour intégrer une image d'installation dans WDS il faudra alors effectuer la conversion.

II. Dans un même ISO d'installation de Windows, on peut avoir la possibilité d'installer plusieurs versions, par exemple : Windows 10 Standard et Windows 10 Pro sur le même ISO. Commencez par monter l'image ISO sur votre machine. Dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:D:/sources/install.esd Vous obtiendrez un résultat comme ceci : Par exemple, je souhaite extraire l'image pour Windows 10 Pro, ce qui correspond à l'index n°8. III. Toujours avec DISM, on va exporter l'image au format WIM à partir du fichier ESD source. Ce qui nous donnera :
