Step 2 - Choose the native command
  • Start with the help for each subcommand
  • Get sample output for each subcommand
  • Analyze the output to determine which bits of information are important to you
  • Look for patterns that make it easy to identify which line of data you are working with
  • Look for natural delimiters that separate labels from data in the output
  • VSSAdmin is a good choice
    • It has decent documentation
    • The output is structured well
