I appologise in advance if this is something very obvious, I have not been using ISA Server for very long. I am trying to get a reboot script to work with our ISA server, the reboot script uses psshutdown to schedule a reboot on remote servers. This works with every server except the ISA server.

The message returned from psshutdown is:

The network path was not found.
Make sure that the default admin$ share is enabled on MORGAN.

I have tried playing with various rules to allow this however I am not making much progress.

You need to allow for SMB over IP (TCP port 445)

Create an access rule allowing from your server Ip to the ISA server on TCP 445

Thank you for the speedy reply, so...

Action: Allow
Protocols: SMB (Port Range 445, Protocol Type: TCP, Direction: Inbound)

Should work... however it dosn't. What am I doing wrong.

You are testing the script from the server also yes?

You need to change the TCP direction from inbound to outbound.

Glad to hear you got it working.

Was it the changing inbound to outbound that fixed it?
