1. Restart Windows Server 2022 with commands
2 . Shut down Windows Server 2022 with commands

Windows Server 2022 is the new edition of this business operating system which we know offers us a great set of roles and services so that the administration tasks are as complete, but at the same time simple as possible. Among many functions available there are some typical ones such as shutting down and restarting the server, as administrators these tasks are carried out exclusively when support tasks have to be performed since a shutdown or restart of the server in a productive environment will prevent the users have access to the server and its respective objects..

 

Normally we carry out these actions from the Start menu and there we click on the shutdown or restart button, but there is another option and that is to carry out these tasks directly from the CMD console and TechnoWikis will explain how to do it in Windows Server 2022.

 

 

Command shutdown
All these tasks are possible thanks to the shutdown command, its usage syntax is as follows:
 shutdown [{-l | -s | -r | -a}] [-f] [-m [\\ computer]] [-t xx] [-c "message"] [-d [u] [p] : xx: yy] 

 

Shutdown parameters
The parameters used are:

 

  • -l: close the current user session.
  • -s: shut down the local server.
  • -r: allows you to restart the computer after it has shut down
  • -a: remove the close command, you can omit other parameters, less -l and ComputerName.
  • -f: forces to run applications to proceed with the shutdown.
  • -m [\\ ComputerName] - Reference the computer to be shut down.
  • -t xx: allows you to define the timer for shutting down the system in xx seconds, by default its value is 20 seconds.
  • -c "message": gives us the option to integrate a message to be displayed in the message area of ​​the server shutdown window, admits up to 127 characters.
  • d [u] [p]: xx: yy: allows us to indicate the code for the shutdown, the options are u (indicates a user code), p (indicates a planned shutdown code), xx (indicates the main code ( 0-255)), yy (allows you to enter the secondary reason code (0-65536)).
