How to Use Cmd Shutdown Command

I found this cmd shutdown command useful for me as I managed several servers in the different location where physical access is not always possible. My favorite command is shutdown /f /r that will force close the application and restart the server.

Shutdown command is a small useful program that I use for several situations:

cmd shutdown command timer

When normal shutdown does not work

If I run a program that becomes not responding and the end task command also does not work my last resort is to restart or shutdown the computer. However, this is not always working, when this happens I will use cmd shutdown command to accomplish the task.

When I need to shutdown remote computer that physically away from my location.

Managing several servers in different location need some utility software so that we can manage efficiently, one of them is cmd shutdown command. I use shutdown cmd command to restart the server mostly I never use shutdown command to shutdown because it will need someone helps to turn on the server physically.
