hi,
   i am writing a small code to have remote shutdown of winNT/2k servers.
hence i first tried to write using Wnetaddconnection to get connected using admin/password , since directly using initiatesystemshutdown API doestn allow me to get priviliege to shutdown.(i dont know why)
i tried to give the privilage using lookupprivilage,accesstoken api's but failed.
  my now probs is Wnetaddconnection fails and gives error values as 67(i cant trace what it is using wnetgetlasterror). may be  NETRESOURCE.lpszRemotename is wrong.
so can u provide some sample code to do such a thing

Try using NetUseAdd to add a connection to a remote resource.

USE_INFO_2 ui2;

ZeroMemory(&ui2, sizeof(ui2));

ui2.ui2_local = NULL;
ui2.ui2_remote = szRemoteResource; // Your remote resource path. In your case it could be \\<server>\IPC$
ui2.ui2_asg_type = USE_IPC;
ui2.ui2_password = ui2.ui2_username = ui2.ui2_domainname = L"";

nas = NetUseAdd(NULL, 2, (LPBYTE)&ui2, NULL);
