Command systeminfo Works fine on XP :) but on Windows 2000 server no such command is known. Is this an add-on?

Just use 'uptime' from the windows resource kit, or uptimei from the nt resource kit.  YOu should be able to find it on the net.  If you can't, let me know and I'll post it on my ftp server.  

Really simple command, doing an 'uptime [computername] will tell you how long it's been up, and there are other options that will allow you to get detailed info, like total system uptime (percentage), when it rebooted etc.  You can run it from your workstation and query computers across the network.

Windows 2000 doesn’t have systeminfo so you can either,

1.      Install http://www.lencom.com/desc/indexN15496.html and click the Environmental button.
2.      From command line issue the following commands

i.      net statistics workstation | more
ii.      net statistics server | more

3.      Click Start >Run >perfmon {enter} Click the + button on the toolbar, under “Performance Object” scroll down to “system”. Then under the “Select Counters from list” option select “System Uptime” look at the bottom of the graph and it will be shown in the duration box.
