So what tools do you use?
So a bit back I asked what tools that SBSers should have on hand and here are some answers...
Besides www.Eventid.net and www.Experts-Exchange.com and the others
mentioned by Susan I find having a Bart's PE Builder CD on hand with
recent antivirus and antispyware a real life saver. See
http://nu2.nu/pebuilder/. I also have on the CD GetDataBack and other
utilities from http://www.runtime.org/. The RunTime.org people have
even provided the plugins for Bart PE. If you have ever lost a volume
on a drive due to disk failure, this utility will amaze you with the
data it can recover if the drive still spins.
7. pokemon (cmon, all work and no play...)
8. netstat -aon | find ":portnumber"
9. tasklist /svc
10. adsiedit.msc <<-- always install the support tools
12. www.hotmail.com <<-- testing external mailflow
13. recovery console
Good start, but let's not forget:
- pathping (built-in)
- ldp (support tools & far better than adsiedit, IMHO)
- shutdown (resource kit)
- Duke Nukem (need you ask?)
- whois (resource kit)
- winsocktool (http://isatools.org/winsocktool.msi )
- portqry http://support.microsoft.com/?id=832919

- netsh -diag (built-in)
- netstat -anob (built-in)
