Source code for the POSIX utilities on the Windows 2000 Resource Kit companion CD is available. For download information, visit the Windows 2000 Resource Kits Web site. This source code and the POSIX utility binaries are not supported by Microsoft and have not undergone formal testing. 

Among POSIX utilities included is su.exe, rsh,

An interesting feature of Windows 2000 Reskit is that it contains 83 VBScript programs that perform various system related tasks. See VBScript-based Tools

Vfi.exe: Visual File Information

Visual File Information retrieves and generates file information. You can use this information for testing purposes to detect what files have changed in different versions of applications or what the difference are between two seemingly identical machines. This information is also valuable to track different versions of resources that normally don't store version information. Results can be copied to the clipboard or save it out to a tab-delimted file or Excel file.

The following information (if present) is diplayed for each file:

File Path
File Name
Ext
Size
Date
Time
Attribs
File Version
Product Version Language
Code Page
OS
Type
File Flags
CRC-32
ISO 9660

Sysdiff - Windows NT-2000's secret deployment tool

In networked environments of over 10 machines, software deployment by hand has become a nightmare.  As software has become more complicated, so to have the installation routines.  From specific installation directories, to component options, to bundled add on applications, sometimes installing the software with the same options on all of your machines is more difficult than actually using it.  Not to mention the 15 different tech support personnel who install it in their own "special way".  System reliability and consistent troubleshooting demand a "cookie cutter" like deployment of all software.

There are many third party utilities on the market today that allow you to package and deploy Windows NT/2000 based applications.  A great deal of them allow after packaging manipulating of files and command lines to be included within the package. 

As many of us have found, sometimes these third party applications can sometimes give us too much leeway, causing us to add too much fluff to what started out to be a "simple install".  Inevitably causing the install to fail, especially in an automated installation environment such as SMS.  Microsoft Windows NT 4 and Windows 2000 Resource Kits include a utility called Sysdiff.exe that allows a before and after "snapshot" of your machine, to catch those installation files, and bundles them nicely into a simple installation file.

Seize File Ownership with Fileman.vbs

Now and then I need to change ownership of a file that is on an NTFS drive. I can do that with the GUI through My Computer or Windows Explorer (select the file, right-click it, choose Properties from the resulting context menu, choose the Security tab, and click the Ownership button), but as is so often the case, I'd like to be able to do this task from the command line as well.

Windows NT resource kits have long included the Chown utility for changing ownership, but I've never been able to make it work. So, I was excited to find fileman.vbs tucked among the dozens of VBScript routines in the Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0 Resource Kit Supplement 4.

Fileman.vbs lets you copy, delete, rename, or seize ownership of a file. Command-line tools already exist to copy, delete, and rename files, but I was glad to finally have a command-line ownership tool. The tool is a mite cumbersome, as you'll see. But because it's a script file, you've got the source code, so enterprising readers can address some of fileman.vbs' flaws. . . .

The res kit for windows 2000 comes with a slew of admin based tools...one is
usrstat.exe, usage: usrstat DOMAIN where DOMAIN is the domain you want
login details for. When given a valid domain you get something like this:

C:\>usrstat.exe MYDOM
Users at \\MYPDC
  ADMINISTRATOR - - logon: Tue Sep 10 07:18:13
2002
         krbtgt - - logon:
Never
    IUSR_MYPDC - Internet Guest Account - logon: Tue Sep 10 08:08:38
2002
          SUSAN - Susan User - logon: Tue Sep 10 08:34:45
2002
            TIM - Tim User - logon: Tue Sep 10 07:36:21
2002
C:\>

It also comes with qgrep.exe....which is a lot like grep...

C:\>usrstat.exe MYDOM | qgrep.exe Susan
          SUSAN - Susan User - logon: Tue Sep 10 00:34:45
2002

C:\>

There are other tools that let you grab current domain and user information
from a logged in computer to make things more dynamic, and with intranet
based passthru from IE to IIS you can grab pertinent information from a
browser and use these tools to create customized web pages.

Info on the resource kit can be found here:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/techinfo/reskit/default.asp

Several are available free (though I don't think the one you want) here:

PS alternately you can use the ADSI to write a query yourself... I think in
VB it would look something like this, but I don't ever use VB, so this is
just a concoction of other stuff i've found around the net...

dim Dom
dim obj
dim outlist

Set Dom = GetObject("WinNT://ENTERDOMAINNAMEHERE") ' actual connection,
also try LDAP://
 
outlist = "" 'just a holder
 
for each obj in Dom 'add objects to the holder one by one
   outlist = outlist & obj.name & vbCrLf
next
 
wscript.echo outlist `print list

Tools not covered in w2rktool.chm

 

Con2Prt.exe (Connect to Printer)

This tool is not covered in w2rktool.chm.

Con2Prt.exe is a command-line tool that provides scriptable functionality to the Add Printer wizard, so that you can simply write a script to add printers on client computers. Con2Prt lets the user disconnect all existing connections to Windows 2000 printers and connect to newly specified Windows 2000 printers. Here is an example of the syntax:

CON2PRT [ /? | /h | /f | [/c \\printserver\share | /cd \\printserver\share]+]

where:
/? - displays usage
/h - displays usage
/f - deletes all existing printer connections
/c - connects to printer at \\printserver\share
/cd - connects to printer at \\printserver\share and sets it as the default printer

Any number of /c and /cd parameters can be specified. However, only the first /cd sets the specified printer as the default.

Use Net View \\printserver to determine available print shares.
 

  • Runapp.exe (Run Application)

    This tool is not covered in w2rktool.chm.
