Compressing a directory with rar on Linux

I've been struggling to get this to work for so long that when I finally got it going I had to throw it up here so I wouldn't lose it.
rar a -m5 -R output.rar /etc/

This will create a max compression (not taking into account dictionary sizes and the like) archive of the entire etc directory.

Disconnect Windows 2000 RDP session from command line

I use SSH to gain access to my Windows 2000 command line, so that will be reflected in the below steps.

Step #1: Connect to the server if you are not sitting at it
ssh username@win2000server -i privatekey

Step #2: Find out which sessions are currently active
query session

 SESSIONNAME       USERNAME                 ID  STATE   TYPE        DEVICE
>console                                     0  Conn    wdcon
 rdp-tcp                                 65536  Listen  rdpwd
 rdp-tcp#7         fakeuser                  1  Active  rdpwd

Step #3: We want to kill the connection with an ID of 1 (we can tell by the username and that it is active)
tsdiscon 1 /v

Disconnecting sessionID 1 from sessionname RDP-Tcp#7

That's it :) Easy eh?

Search for open files that won't allow you to unmount a server volume

lsof | grep "Office Server"

Lists out all open files on a given volume ("Office Server" in this case.) Good to find those peskey open files that won't let you eject a mounted network volume.
