Problems using sysinternals psshutdown
Posted on 2012-04-11
My remtoe desktop starting freezing up upon logging in, so I am attempting to remotely restart th computer.
It is not part of a domain, but I am connected via hamachi.
I tried the following commnad:
pssshutdown \\XX.XXX.XXX.XXX -r -t 30 -u office-pc\user -p passw0rd
WHere office-pc is the computer name and user is the username.
however, I get the following error:
Couldn't access XX.XXX.XXX.XXX:
Access is denied.
If XX.XXX.XXX.XXX is already performing a shutdown operation you must
abort it before issuing a different command.
It is definitely the right password.
