Hi Guys,

I need some help, I have a service running as LocalSystem on windows 2008 and in any  remote installation of the windows 7 64 bits can not send some file

my sintax:

Psexec /accepteula "\\ch1c4umPC" -c -f -d -i -u "domtest.local\administrator" -p "mypass" -n 10 -h c:\installer.exe" "\VERYSILENT" "\SERVERNAME="SERV2008"";

but when I run as administrator  level user the  command functions normally.

And if I run as a service NT AUTHORITY/LocalService the remote installation work perfect but my level user privileges are minimal

installer.exe does it require other resources or just copying installer.exe to the remote system and running it enough?

Take out the -i (interact with the desktop) option it does not serve any purpose here.
Not sure what your -h option is if you want it to run with a high priority, you should use -high

You have admin login information.  you may want to include the -s option that will run the remote process with system level rights provided the username password you are using/providing are valid.

Depending on the software you are trying to push, using Software deployment in a GPO might be a better more manageable setup/approach.

What test? Did you copy install.exe to a separate system and tried to install and it failed?
I.e. install.exe is just a part of what s needed.

You should create a share and use the shared path with psexec to install.  
Install.exe /?
See if it has options such as /a that help in creating an MSI, response file that can be used in a GPO to deploy the software installation.

Yes I did all the tests imaginable, at least for me ...

The problem is that when i running psexec in user-level and i open the cmd psexec call and pass the parameters works but if I run eg psexec -s cmd /c psexec "\\ch1c4umPC" -d -i -u "domtest.local\administrator" -p "mypass" -n 10 -h c:\installer.exe" "\VERYSILENT" "\SERVERNAME="SERV2008""; when I indicate a machine windows 7 always returns access denied

Why do you have two psexec in the command line?
you should have only one.the last option should be /verysilent

You seem to be using psexec twice once to start cmd on the local system that copies and will run psexec "\\ch1c4umPC" -d -i -u "domtest.local\administrator" -p "mypass" -n 10 -h c:\installer.exe" "\VERYSILENT"

To what end?
Why not run
psexec "\\ch1c4umPC" -c -d -i -u "domtest.local\administrator" -p "mypass" -n 10 -h c:\installer.exe" "\VERYSILENT" from the get go?
