I used the command 'netdom query workstation' to discover all the workstations active on the domain. I chose one workstation still active and entered it's machine name as discovered by the netdom query output as x100-WS01-YU0

I then ran CMD in administrator mode and entered this:
shutdown /m \\x100-WS01-YU0 /f /s

I'm encountering an error message: The entered computer name is not valid or remote shutdown is not supported on the target computer. Check the name and then try again or contact your system administrator.(53)

What am I missing in the script?
