I have Access denied message when trying to run cmd remotely from system user account.
The scenario:

Im logged on win 2008 Std machine. Domain user has local admin privileges.
I can run cmd.exe on remote machine (windows 2008 Ent) in system account.

C:\Users\Domain_User>psexec \\remotehost /s c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe

C:\Windows\system32>exit
c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe exited on remote_host with error code 0.

All is ok. It is working fine with domain user with admin privileges on remotehost machine also.

Then I run cmd locally in system account and try to run cmd remotely under domain user account (domain user has admin privileges on remotehost)

C:\Users\Domain_User>psexec \\localhost /s c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe

Access is denied.
Could not start PsExec service on remotehost:

C:\Windows\system32>exit
c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe exited on localhost with error code 122.

What is wrong. On both systems UAC is disabled, fw is disabled. From win 2003 this scenario ends without any errors.

I'm using psexec to install software remotely from windows service.

I see in some places this might be a psexec bug that the next release of psexec fixes.

Try to get the latest version and try again:
