PSEXEC \\RemoteSitePC XCOPY

Hi there,

Logged on as a domain admin, here is what i tried, but it does not work:
PSEXEC \\RemoteSitePC XCOPY /Y /I "\\RemoteSiteServer\Shared$\AHugeFile.msi" "C:\Temp"
PSEXEC \\RemoteSitePC -u DomainName\administrator -p password XCOPY /Y /I "\\RemoteSiteServer\Shared$\AHugeFile.msi" "C:\Temp"

Open in new window


By the way:
-I have full access everywhere
-I can run "psexec \\RemoteSitePC CMD" and type a command
-When logged on RemoteSitePC, I can run:
XCOPY /Y /I "\\RemoteSiteServer\Shared$\AHugeFile.msi" "C:\Temp"

Thanks for your help,
Rene

You can copy directly without PSEXEC
From your local machine, logged in as domain admin then run:
COPY "\\RemoteSiteServer\Shared$\AHugeFile.msi" "\\RemoteSitePC\c$\temp"

Open in new window


With psexec, you need to enter the full path of the command to be executed.

PSEXEC \\RemoteSitePC c:\windows\system32\XCOPY /Y /I  \\RemoteSiteServer\Shared$\AHugeFile.msi C:\Temp

A direct xcopy is a problem, because the packets goes from the remote site server, to my PC, then back to the remote site PC.

The following is the working solution.

Thanks for your help.
