Batch File commands

I want to shutdown a bunch of servers.  So I run the shutdown command, but it issues the command, and then waits for a response.
I would like the batch file to issue the shutdown command, and continue down the list without waiting, how do I do this?

Try prefacing each SHUTDOWN command with START.  This will allow the script to continue without waiting for the command to complete.

You could write a script in AutoIt (or AutoHotKey)
Run("shutdown -s -m \\RemotePC1")
Run("shutdown -s -m \\RemotePC2")

Open in new window
