PSEXEC access denied when using @file for multiple computers
Posted on 2009-07-10
I am attempting to use PSEXEC to deploy and MSP (Microsoft Installer Patch) file to about 80 computers. For some reason when I try to put the command in a batch file I get a logon failure on the remote computer. Below is the string from the batch file:
C:\PSTools\psexec \\@C:\PSTools\CPUListHPPC.txt -u "Domain\administrator" -p "PassWord" msiexec.exe /p "\\eoverbylt\osc\OSCC70R3G02Client.msp" /qn >deployhppc.log 2>&1
The funny thing is if I just open a command prompt and just run the command from there it works flawless.
So to explain the command. PSexec is reading a list of computers from CPUListHPPC.txt and using the domain administrator account to log into the pc. Then uses the /p switch to install the MSP (patch) file to the program with /qn or quiet mode enabled and logging to deployhppc.log file.
Is psexec ignoring the -u and -p switches for the username/password since it is being opened via a batch file?
