Execute file remotely as admin


I'd like to be able to execute a file (batch file) on a remote machine on our network using a username / password. Can this be done? Note that the batch file is to be run on the remote machine.

The systems it will be used on are win2k & XP.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

With this the process / services works fine locally, but remotely i get "object required: 0x1a". I also get the same message when running commands locally or remotely.

I do have a reference to wmi 1.2

Any ideas?
The remote machine is Win2k or XP?
