I have an AIX Unix server that I need to remotely shutdown by using a batch file /script from a Windows 2003 server.   I have the root password and I have telnet and SSH access.  Both server are on the same local network.

to do so, you need to:

- have an ssh server running on the aix server
- have an ssh client like putty / ssh on the windows system
- set trust between the two systems to avoid being prompted for password

Please see the link below for similar case, but in your case you need to use the right shutdown command
