A collection of things that I’ve found useful for one reason or another during my time troubleshooting windows workstations and helping end users. Hopefully you will find them as helpful as I have.
The links to these tools contain the MD5 as the downloads are hosted by myself from a Backblaze bucket you should check the MD5 of what you download before you run any of it, checking the MD5 does not make the software safe but it does make sure that at least you got what you attempted to download check your MD5 elsewhere to confirm. None of this software is mine this is just a collection of links to acquire it use at your own risk.
for when you really need to check and see if you can configure something with Group Policy.
Windows CLI things Get the service tag of dell PC’s from Command Prompt or PowerShell
wmic bios get serialnumber
Expire a computers kerberos ticket thus forcing the computer to get a new one this helps windows detect a change in AD OU’s without rebooting so that you can run gpupdate /force without needing to reboot. Useful for systems that cant be shut down but do need to be moved in AD.
