any way to shutdown computer on same workgroup remotely?
At a cmd prompt type "shutdown /?" (without the quotes) and you will get a list of options.
wow, didnt realize it could be that simple thank you very much
wow that is sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeet is there a way to make it script something through active directory to do it at a certian time
pss shutdown will allow this.
http://www.realvnc.com/ will do it
You could just make a batch file with the shutdown command in it and use windows scheduler to do it
a batch file was what i was going to suggest, dont ask for any more detail tho
i am going to write a batch file tonight i guess while getting paid OT to fix this damn virus. can't be gone for a day and 43computers have it infected on their system
*sigh* when will people learn
never is the short answer ther mooo....
I can even illustrate because I has need of this (too tired for the stairs!) But it was innefective - see attached screenshot - I know names are OK, so what am I doing wrong? Surely the RUN box makes on odds? I wait with bated breat to be remotely shutting down!
That doesn't make much sense to me
You need a -s or -r or -a before the -m
hmmm, what do you make of this then? i've always wanted to take advantage of this...
but can't do it!
maybe it needs to be qualified by the domain name?
can also try this free program
full documentation is found here
this is a workgroup situation...
and psshutdown gave me the same error.
nope. it even crashed when i clicked "browse"
I wrote a proggie few months ago that can do this....
http://shutdowntool.no-ip.org/ <- NEVER tested on a workgroup
shut down up to 10 client pc on a domain. Read the readme. I think for a workgroup you 'll need to set the "allow this computer to be shutdown from the network" in the local security policy to "everyone"
do you happen to know the exact location of that policy? i can't find it. running xp pro.
