This should be an easy one. I can remotely reboot a computer from 10.0.1.20 using the dos command of "shutdown /m \\10.0.1.22 /r /t 01 /y /f". What I would like to do is reboot the same computer 10.0.1.22 from i computer on the 192.168.100.100 subnet. When I run the same command from 192.168.100.100 i get error message "10.0.1.22 access is denied (5)". The 2 sites are connected by a vpn. I am trying to write a script that will reboot about 350 computers from one location.
Thanks in advance

Make sure the account you are using to run command has administrative privileges on the remote computers, also check firewall is not blocking RPC ports on remote computers.
