I am wanting to know some of the DOS commands that could be used when administering or troubleshooting Windows client/server OS for a phone interview this evening.  This would include Windows 7, 8 and 10, Windows Server2003, 2008, and 2012.  I would appreciate any help that I can get.  I normally use windows or powershell for this but this company wants to be able to use DOS in some instances.
