Using a command in PowerShute Network Shutdown

I want to run a command in PowerShute Network Shutdown and can't get it to work.

I created a batch file here C:\APC_Server_Shutdown\shutdown_untangle.cmd

The command in the batch file is
plink.exe -batch -pw [password] root@ shutdown -h now

Open in new window

plink.exe reside in the folder C:\APC_Server_Shutdown\

When I right click on the shutdown_untangle.cmd batch file it works. When enter this "C:\APC_Server_Shutdown\shutdown_untangle.cmd" in a command I get

'plink.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

Open in new window

What am I doing wrong?

I would use the full path to the plink.exe executable in the command.
You will have to run from the same location as plink.exe OR, in the batch file, put the full path to plink.exe.

That worked but  trying to run the command file from PowerShute Network Shutdown does not work.

Any ideas on how to setup the command in Powershute?

I never got this to work. I contacted APC for support and they never solved it for me. I followed up atleast 5 times and the support rep each time said that he would get back to me after he would talk to their developers. It seem to be a bug but he never confirmed it as such.

To say that their support is really bad.
