unable to get msg.exe to send a broadcast message to all users
I am trying to use msg.exe on a Window 7 64-bit PC to send a message to all users in our domain. I am a domain admin, and I am running cmd 'as administrator'. I am able to get a message to be delievered to myself using:
msg console Test
I am also able to send a message to any other PC on out network using the syntax:
msg /server:<pcname> console Test
However I am unable to message ALL computers in the domain in one go, according to a Microsoft article the syntax to do this should be:
msg * Test
When I try this, only my PC gets the message.
I have also tried:
msg * console Test (again only my PC gets the message)
msg /server:* console Test (I get the error Error 1722 getting session names)
Anyone had any luck actually using msg.exe to send a message to all their users?
