Restart Windows Server

Under windows server as under windows since 2000 version, if you don't find the Shutdown button in the start menu, don't worry, you can easily restart whith the MS-DOS console.
Click the start menu, choose "execute...", type "cmd" for opening the command line and type "shutdown -r".
The -r option tells the system to shutdown and then restart. Very usefull if your server is located somewhere in India and you don't want to pay fees for a employee to go pressing physically on the server start button !
