Finding Uptime Using 'net statistics server' on Windows 2008 Server Does Not Work

Symptom:

You type in to a CMD.exe the following command,

net statistics server

and it was showing the uptime of the server on your Windows 2003 server, but when you tried this on a 64-bit Windows 2008 Enterprise R2, it does not show correct time.

Fix:

Though bizarre, try

net statistics workstation


Please note that in my situation the server is 2008 R2 SP2 but it still does not work with 'net statistics server' Since the workstation command works, I am OK by it.
