Hi All

I am trying to run psexec command from a windows XP to execute a .bat file on a remote server with Windows Server 2008.
I am using this syntax: psexec.exe -i \\ServerName -u user -p pass c:\....bat
I am not able to perform this task on server 2008 while on server 2003 the same syntax work beautifully.
I have checked that the user I am using is part of the administrators group and it is. Is there something I need to know regarding psexec executing on server 2008?
Are there any services that needs to be started on the remote system for psexec to work?
What am I'm doing wrong?
