Shutdown specifying user name and password

Im using Symantec Packager to install a Windows up-date.

At the end of the up-date i need to restart the computer using a batch file.

On Windows 2000 computers im using PSShutdown - r -t 04:00

On Windows XP Computers im using Shutdown -s -t 10800

However when the batch file is executed on the remote computer the Windows XP computer says "A required privilege is not held by the client". However im executing this under a admin account !

Is there a another restriction thats preventing this from executing ?

Thanks

adjust security token privelages
it's something to that effect. Try doing it without the reboot flag and it should work. I BELIEVE, dont quote me on this, that that privelage is required to reboot. I know using our remote shutdown tool i could shutdown the PC without a message under my admin account, but i could not reboot or shutdown with message until i added myself to this priv. group.

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

Two *possible* issues at work here.

1) the batch file is being run under an account other than admin (i.e. secondary logon) or restricted service account (depending on how the batch file is being started)
2) What admin account? Is the PC on a network? If so, are you using a domain admin account on a PC not part of the domain? or listed as being able to administrate the computer? Also, are there any policies in effect preventing what you are trying to do?

I think that there are policies in effect preventing this from happening.

I have tried to look at some in secpol.mcs howeverim not sure which ones should make this work, as this is being run with an administrators account..

thanks
