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.

Cheers,
Rene

PSEXEC \\RemoteSitePC /u DomainName\Administrator /p password c:\windows\system32\XCOPY /Y /I \\RemoteSiteServer\Shared$\AHugeFile.msi C:\Temp
