Terminal Server Commands

The following page is a list of several commands available on Terminal Server workstations and servers.
These commands can be used in batch files or other scripting languages.
The syntaxes listed are for Windows 2000 Advanced Server (SP3).
From a reliable source I know they are identical in NT 4, XP and 2003.
In early beta versions of Longhorn, though, CHGLOGON /QUERY currently directs its output to standard error instead of standard output. This may still change in a following version.
