Psexec copy file question

EE,

I'm trying to run NLTest on workstations remotely via psexec, only NLTest is not installed on workstations. Instead of manually copying it I wanted to copy it using the -c in psexec and then run the command but so far it doesn't work for me.

psexec -c nltest.exe C:\WINDOWS\System32 \\RemoteIP cmd /k nltest /dsgetsite

This exits psexec every time. I swaped -c to the end and some other changes with no luck.

Any ideas?

This command copies the program test.exe to the remote system (\\marklap) and executes it interactively:

psexec \\marklap -c test.exe

The -c has no parameter, it is used as a simple switch indicating the program to start needs to be copied first. The correct usage is hence


psexec  \\RemoteIP -c nltest.exe /dsgetsite
