Windows Domain Rename and Noticed Odd Log Entry

I am about to embark on a Windows domain rename at my place of work and when going through the preparatory works, I came across the following:

Enter "gpfixup /olddns:OldDomainDnsName /newdns:NewDomainDNSName
/oldnb:OldDomainNetBIOSName /newnb:NewDomainNetBIOSName
/dc:DcDnsName 2>&1 >gpfixup.log".

Page: /technet/technetmag/issues/2005/05/DomainRename/default.aspx

The part that puzzled me was 2>&1 - when was this functionality added in Windows? I always thought of this command as being specific to UN*X type systems!

Be gentle on me if this something that has been known since Windows 1 - lol.

Moved: Has nothing to do with Linux as it's not a Linux technical question. I also changed your title to something better and more descriptive than.. "What tha?" which is worse than a thread titled.. "Help Me!!!!!!"... ughh.. I should really quit being a moderator, it's such a time waste cause people can't pick the most appropiate forum or title their thread to something that actually describes their thread. One would think it's rocket science or something..

Oops, didn't mean to get your nickers all up in a bunch - was just curious!

I'll be more mindful of my thread subjects in the future; apologies for getting you all riled up!
