Adding a group to a local group with PSEXEC

Adding a group to a local group with PSEXEC

I am trying to run the follwoing script, but I get the message:
Net.exe exited on computername with error code 1

Psexec \\RemoteComputer Net localgroup "Remote Desktop Users" Domain\FinGroup /Add

Any idea ?

Thanks

You should not have to supply credentials, that's true.

psexec should print the output of the netsh command before it is reporting about errorlevel. Maybe you have done that net use already (in which case I get errorlevel 2, not 1, but who knows ...). PSExec itself does not have any errorcodes, it is just reporting the result of the called command.

Which account are you using? It might help if you provide credentials to psexec, to make sure an admin account is used with appropriate access rights.

I am running the psexec from a domain controller to another member server, I believe I don't need to put credentials there, since I am domain admins and I also am able to browse to the remote computer using \\Remotecomputername

Try placing your command in a .bat  Net localgroup "Remote Desktop Users" Domain\FinGroup /Add
 
Then use Psexec \\RemoteComputer -c -f -s \\server\share\rdpusers.bat

Also when testing the original command, you might have a group that dont exist or spelling issue. It is working for me(error code 0)
