How to make CMD window appear for all users on windows server

Shaun123465 0 Reputation points


I am an administrator for a shared windows server VM in my organization (NT 6.2). I run python scripts on it which show a cmd window output continuously.

Is there a way to make those command windows appear for other users who log in? Mostly so other people can RDP into the server and see if they are running or not. I tried running my public desktop etc, and the windows don't appear for other users.

Currently my workaround is writing the output to txt file and using php to display it on a webpage.

    A cmd windows runs in the logged on user's desktop heap and would not be available or visible to any other users currently logged on.

    Hello there,

    It might not be possible to share the CMD but the results of the command can be shared once the command of executed successfully.

    The Send-MailMessage cmdlet sends an email message from within PowerShell.

    You must specify a Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) server or the Send-MailMessage command fails. Use the SmtpServer parameter or set the $PSEmailServer variable to a valid SMTP server.

    Hope this resolves your Query !!
