Help with psexec

I using psexec to launch installs from remote pc's and in most cases it has been working for me but i am stuck on this on.

c:\psexec \\ITPC C:\temp\sqlr\SQLR_A0267_win32.exe /S /v/qn

All my other examples have simpler switches for silent installs for example

c:\psexec \\TRAIN91 C:\temp\lender\setup.exe unattend

I don't know if the extra space in the parameters is throwing things off or not.  I even tried embedding the command into a batch file coping over the batch file to the pc and then executing that.. surprising that didn't work either.  I can run the command C:\temp\sqlr\SQLR_A0267_win32.exe /S /v/qn from the dos prompt on the local machine with no problem.  I am also open to other ways to lauching remote files on other pc's.  I had looked into using WMI originally but i didn't have much luck with that.

I think what you need is to enclose the remote command in quotes or eliminate the space in the switches as you hinted at

c:\psexec \\ITPC "C:\temp\sqlr\SQLR_A0267_win32.exe /S /v/qn"
or
c:\psexec \\ITPC C:\temp\sqlr\SQLR_A0267_win32.exe /S/v/qn

One of those should work.

Have you tried enclosing the entire command in quotes?

"c:\psexec \\ITPC C:\temp\sqlr\SQLR_A0267_win32.exe /S /v/qn"

That should work from a batch file if it works when you run it from a DOS prompt on the local machine.

Hope this helps!

Interesting i had tried both of the quote methods before but in good spirit i tried them again and they didn't work.  I removed the space and it worked.  I thought it was the space that was causing the problems but i was insistent that earlier testing said it was needed.

Thanks guys!

ravikiranchv, you will need to post the command you are trying to run so that we may see the syntax in use. Additionally, your question should probably be posted as a new one since only those who participated in this question will be notified that anything has been posted. I would then again reply to this question again with the URL from your new one.

Cheers,
