I have browsed the other articles on here about people with similar problems, but I have tried everytyhing suggested and still I cannot get it to work.  I am trying this:

shutdown /r /m \\remotecpu
 
This produces:
Access is denied.(5)

I am logged into the domain machine as Administrator, the remotecpu I'm trying to shutdown has the domain Administrator added as an administrator, I have tried adding the domain admin to the local security policy -> allow remote shutdown and nothing seems to be working.  Right away I get access is denied.

Why is this?

One second...Shutdown command runs the security context of SYSTEM Account and Administrator account. From where are you issuing this command ?

Try downloading the pstools suite from http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/freeware/pstools.shtml.  I use these for remote reboots, shutting down users applications, viewing their processes, etc...

I've tried PS tools and I still get access denied.  one other thing I notice is that I do not have access to the administrative shares on my clients.

Do the clients have a firewall solution on?  Windows Firewall will block you out.

Yeah, I thought that. I tested it by turning it off, still same thing.  I think it is somehow related to another issue I'm having where I cannot access from the domain server the clients administrative shares.  Something just seems messed up.  I also think that if you have file and print sharing enables in the firewall, remote reboot works because this is what I had to do on the old domain server for rebooting my XP clients.  Is there anything different in SBS 2003?  Any policies enabled by default, etc.?

Turns out this is all related to my clients not being joined on my domain properly in addition to SMB signing.  I amended the SMB signing properties in the group policy of the domain and then rejoined my clients and all access is now ok from domain server to client.
