    DOWN.EXE will down a file server from the command line if you are supervisor or equivalent. Syntax: 'DOWN <server name>'. Help is available by calling DOWN without parameters. Can be used in batch jobs.

    Syntax: DOWN

    Usage: DOWN [ servername [/force] ]

    You need ...
    • a connection to the target server
    • Administrator/supervisor privileges on the target server
    • Use the "/force" flag to down the server even when files are still open
    • Without the "/force" flag the request fails when files are still open

        DOWN     MyServer
        DOWN     MyServer /Force
