I have a short script I'm trying to push out to my domain computers that uses psexec to force each of the machines to updated their SCCM heart beat. when I ran it I got an error that said: " 'psexec' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file. "My script is fairly simple and my psexec and script are in the root of C: on the host computer. the script looks like:

C:\Windows\system32>psexec \\<computername> -u <domain\adminusername> -p <password> WMIC/namespace:\\root\ccm path sms_client CALL TriggerSchedule '{0000
0000-0000-0000-0000-000000000003}'

when I run the WMIC from command line on my local computer it works just fine, when I try to script it, not so much.

please assist.

Have you tried the WMIC /node:"computername" switch

This should take psexec completely out of the equation.

well, I'm still getting invalid parameter. the fact is that I simply don't want to walk around to 120 desktops and update the SCCM heartbeat. I was trying to do it this way but if you have a better suggestion, so be it.

'0000-0000-0000-0000-000000000003}'"' is not recognized as an internal or extern
al command,
operable program or batch file.

actually, with one little change to this statement I was able to get it to work. it appears that our network has some sort of security measure that blocks my credentials the way I put them in. so this one worked.
