system so the name of the user on the remote system that I'm going to authenticate as, is rtracy and I do need to specify where that user account resides. So I'm going to enter Win7. Specify the name of the computer that I'm connecting to and I want to connect as rtracy on that computer. Enter rtracy's password. Click OK.And we will accept the certificate from the remote computer. And I've established a remote desktop session with the other computer on the network. Which as you can see is a Windows 7 system. Let's go ahead and sign off from the remote computer. Summary 15:07-15:34 That's it for this demonstration. In this demo, we talked about several system commands that you can use as a system administrator from the command prompt. We began this lesson by talking abouthow to get help with commands from the command prompt. Then we looked at a series of differentcommands that you can use from the command prompt such as the exit command, the expand command, the shutdown command. Then we talked about managing processes with tasklist and taskkill, and then we ended this lesson by talking about how to manage a remote connections using the mstsc command. The following table describes the various system commands that can be used in the Windows command prompt: Comman d Description expand The expand command is used to expand compressed .cab files. expand -d [source_file] displays the contents of the specified .cab file. expand [source_file] [destination] expands all the files in the specified .cab file to the chosen destination. expand [source_file] f: [filename] [destination] extracts a single file from the specified .cab file to the chosen destination. tasklist The tasklist command displays a list of the processes that are currently running on the system. The output of the tasklist command includes a process ID (PID) that can be used to end the process. taskkill The taskkill command is used to end running processes. taskkill /im [image_name] kills the specified process by using its image name (e.g., mspaint.exe). taskkill /PID [pid_number] kills the specified process by using its PID (e.g., 3572).

Sometimes a process will not respond the taskkill command. If this is the case, use the /f option with the command, which forces the process to close. mstsc The mstsc command is used to establish a remote desktop session with another computer. To run the mstsc command, use the following syntax: mstsc /v: [server_ip] gpupdate The gpupdate command refreshes local and Active Directory-based Group Policy settings, including security settings. /target: { computer | user } processes only the computer settings or the current user settings. By default, both the computer settings and the user settings are processed. /force ignores all processing optimizations and reapplies all settings.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
