So I am trying to use msg.exe on the command prompt on a domain named district. I can successfully call the method
msg myUsername test message and receive a message to myself but whenever I do
msg friendUsername test message, I get the error
friendUsername does not exist or is disconnected. I know that this user is logged in because they are right next to me trying to get this to work.
Whenever I do
net user it only lists the Guest and Administrator account and not my own as it is stored somewhere on the network. Each user has their own personal drive which is stored on the district domain. (Net send does not work by the way). I found out that I probably need to use the
/server: part of the command but I am not sure what server my user is on. If I don't specify a server, it goes to default but it cannot find the other users? I tried checking
/server:district but it won't even send a message to myself anymore.
Also, I don't know if it matters or not, but I can find users and computers successfully on the Active Directory.
How can I successfully send a message?
