Permissions for PStools

I am using the program PStools to start a program remotely inside my network.  However, I keep getting permission issues.  The script I am running to start the program connects fine then windows tells me Access Denied.  I am sure I need to give some kind of permission to my computer.  I can send the command from my domain server and it works.  Exact same command from a different PC doesn't.  I can't always use the server to send the command so I would like to figure out the permission issue.  Any help would be appreciated!

The user you're running the script as probably needs to be an administrator on the target machine, is the user you're logging onto the DC as different from the user you log on as when you try it from another computer?

It is different and I gave that user access as an administrator.  Do I have to reboot to make that take affect?

Assuming you're using psexec you can include username and password in the command. So create a test local account on the target machine and add it to the local administrators group. Then when launching the command include the username and password.

Apologies if you're already doing this, I'm assuming you are curently relying on pasthrough authentication.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I don't do much command line work, so forgive me if this is elementary.  What is the syntax to include the username and password?

No prob, technically this is a workaround as i would think passthrough authentication should work but hey if it works and you're happy...:)

Actually the passthrough did work.  I wonder if it just took a few moments for the permissions to refresh.  I tried it before lunch and it denied but after lunch it worked.
