Hi All,

As system admin, I need to troubleshoot different issues. Of late, I find Process Explorer has been a great tool for lot of time. But i really started using this tool recently. Is there any other tools that an System Admin should keep handy? Can anybody refer some free tools that helps us resolving everyday issues? One more thing I need to know, is there any ebook, or forum where I can learn Process explorer?

Please guide me.....

Hi,

Process explorer was made by the sysinternals guys.

You'll find more freeware you'd be able to use at www.sysinternals.com

For the documentation, the best is to go for mark russinovich blog on the technet.
In another way, you can eventually have a look the the videos "the case of the unexplained" by mark russinovich on the MSDN channel 9 blog.

you'll be able to take out some good tips by looking at Mark manipulating his Tools :)

by the way, it's not free, but a great book exists : Windows sysinternals administrator's reference. It's not free, but honestly, given the gold what's in there, i bought it because the content is really awesome.



Cheers
