Yes an ages old util, but ghost32 (norton/symantec) still has its worth. Here’s how to use it for converting to virtual machines.
Just a quick note for easy reference.

For creating a few group policy preferences, I needed to come up with a list of all the OU’s (and a simple export from the ADUC gui doesn’t cut it). I also wanted a rough count of the pc’s in each ou for various other purposes. Continue reading Export AD Computer List
Nice precise writeup on moving from 6.0 to 6.0u2 (even if you’re skipping 1 or 1b)..
Visited in early 1990s. There was a lot less graffiti then. At the time, it had two or three tight belly crawls in some areas lasting for about 5 feet (for a 6’1, 180lb person) and we dug a few inches down in the wet sand to get through. It didn’t appear that anyone else had ventured into the tight areas.
There was also a small cave that went about 50′ in the opposite direction of the main traveled route (basically behind the ladder)

Quick and Dirty install of OpenSSH under Windows Server 2012R2 to obtain SFTP/SSH login.
Often overlooked is the ability to schedule a task to run at system start. Utilizing that, you can use any number of ways to craft and send an email upon system reboot.
You can Google for a list of free smtp command line mailers to send the email or just use Blat which I’ve used for a while and works just fine.
Here’s a sample blat cmdline which can be added to a batch script or used directly in the task scheduler.
c:\utils\blat.exe -to firstname.lastname@example.org -f Sender@mydomain.com -server smtp.mydomain.com -subject "Server Reboot" -body "%computername% has been rebooted."
If you want to use a mailer that’s a little more robust & includes CC,BCC, and support for SSL/TLS (can be used with gmail) and other little things, check out Send-It-Quiet (src/bin avail via Github). And a 3rd option that also supports TLS is sendEmail.
The key is to simply use task scheduler…there are quite a few delivery methods and scripts including using Powershell like this person has.
