Verify Windows Activation

Wondering if that server or workstation has an activated license? View the current license status with the Software Licensing User Interface “slui” command in Vista+/2008+ (or oobe/msoobe in XP/2003). For more info see the article at http://www.windowsvalley.com/is-windows-activated-check-windows-activation-status/ Cheers!

Repadmin

A great command built-in to Server 2008 Domain Controllers (DC’s). Try the following to force replication with other DC’s. Just a note from some recent AD work. Sometimes you don’t want to wait for replication to happen.
