I am wanting to backup some hyper-v guests that are running non vss aware databases.  The backup vendors all say I need to write batch files to stop and then restart the db service on the guest vm.
The backup software is on the host machine.  I can use psexec but I know I need to authenticate to the guest server.
What would script look like?
It will be a few hours before I can try it.

psexec has username / password options...

Usage: psexec [\\computer[,computer2[,...] | @file][-u user [-p psswd]][-n s][-l][-s|-e][-x][-i [session]][-c [-f|-v]][-w directory][-d][-<priority>][-a n,n,... ] cmd [arguments]

 use the runas command in your batch that you remotely execute with psexec

Syntax
runas [{/profile|/noprofile}] [/env] [/netonly] [/smartcard] [/showtrustlevels] [/trustlevel] /user:UserAccountName program
