Beyondexec with windows server 2008

Posted on 2011-10-11
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I currently use Beyondexec to make remote calls to my server 2003 machines. I'm switching to server 2008. My scripts using Beyondexec no longer work with server 2008. I have done some googling but can't find if there's a different way i need to use Beyondexec. Does anyone have any information on this?

    from the website and supported os, here's the lsit: Shutdown Remote Windows NT/2000/XP WorkStations, so it doesn't support windows 2008.

    u could try disbaling the firewall and relaxing the remote security, but will be betetr off with powershell scripts

    Thank you gentlemen. I think powershell is the way to go but will probably use psexec on a couple of the scripts. I notice you can bypass uac with the -h switch. thanks again.
