put the IPs into a file, each address on a separate line, and use
psshutdown @ips.txt -t 10 -f -u username -p password

Simply put the names or addresses of those machines into a list and use the (path and) name of this file instead of the machine name, with an @ in front.

Or, if you want to do it all from within the batch file:


psshutdown.exe @"C:\Temp\shutdown.txt" -t 10  -f -u <username> -p <password>
 
 
@echo off
set ComputerList=1.2.3.4 1.2.3.5 SomeName
for %%a in (%ComputerList%) do psshutdown.exe \\%%a -t 10  -f -u <username> -p <password
