Trying to run the psexec command below through SQL cmdshell.  The command is running from one server and executing on another.  If we run the command from outside of SQL, it works.  Running in SQL it gets as far as starting psexec (verified through Windows task manager) and just hangs.

master..xp_cmdshell 'd:\pstools\psexec \\servername -u username -p password -d d:\dbascripts\2_Stoplawson_tst.cmd'

master..xp_cmdshell 'd:\pstools\psexec \\servername -u username -p password -d d:\dbascripts\2_Stoplawson_tst.cmd'

Does the user that the MS SQL process runs as have permissions to the other server?

Yes.  We are using a domain account that has local admin rights on both the executing and receiving servers.

Try passing it through the command interpreter...
master..xp_cmdshell 'cmd /c d:\pstools\psexec \\servername -u username -p password -d d:\dbascripts\2_Stoplawson_tst.cmd'

Thanks for helping us out.  I thought it had to by syntax since there are so few issues posted on this subject.

So I have tried the above but my script still runs forever.

Curiously, if I ask it to run a process that is going to error (e.g. error code 1 or above) - it returns fine. However, if things are returning with error code 0 (e.g. sucess) - then they never return within SQL.

I have checked the user details and can confirm there is no issues there. Urgently need to get this working!! Help!
