– Run a command
– Log off
– Reboot
– Shutdown

Logical Disks:
– Run Chkdsk
– Run Autochk on Reboot

Network Adapters:
– Enable
– Disable
– Renew DHCP Lease
– Release DHCP Lease

– Set Primary DNS Suffix
– Append DNS Suffixes

– Print Test Page
– Cancel Jobs
– Pause
– Resume

– Uninstall a Windows Installer based program

    Just note that this PowerPack requires the NetPoint Mgmt Shell to be installed, which in turn requires IIS(with static content) and also requires SQL backend (SQL express suffices).

      Good point. Also, some features of the pack require commercial version of NetPoint, whereas others work fine with the free edition.
