Hi,

We are using the "remsh" command  on a UNIX machine.Using this command trying to run a batch file on a windows machine"serv1" .The batch file is stored on a "Netapp" folder.

We are able to run the same command on another windows server "serv2".

The command which we are running is :
remsh serv1 -l rshadmin \\netapp02.\XXX.bat)

getting the error:

rcmd: connect: serv1: Connection refused
tox009:edamgr:/home/edamgr >

I have given  the same access to the account "rshadmin" on both servers.

Regards
Nishakar

could you verify the the rsh (or rshell) service is actually active on that server?

Yes, I restarted the rshell service on windows server.Now we are getting different error:

tox009:edamgr:/home/edamgr >remsh serv1 -l rshadmin \\netapp02.\XXX.bat)
Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.

You should verify if the user "rshadmin" exists on your server and
that he is allowed to run rsh (remsh) commands
Either the file .rhosts should exist in this user's HOME directory (or
whatever the name of this file is on the Windoze box) or in file
/etc/hosts.equiv the entry for your client (your Unix box) with this
user has been set.

You may alos try to connect to the server with
  telnet server 514
to see if the service is active.
