I have a text file called "Computers.txt". It is located on a server that has PSEXEC installed. It is located in the following path on the server C:\Computers.

I need to execute a GPUpdate to all remote machines. In my text file, all it show is for example:

PCTest1
PCTest2

And so on. That is all I need in the text file right?

So, since I have to execute this command from a server (I have domain admin rights), how would I execute the command?

Given the info above, please type the psexec command exactly as should be.

So when I executed the command, this is what I get (below screen shot ). What does error code -1 mean? Did it fail? I know error code -0 mean it's successful.

You should get this (this is polish language version):

\\COMPUTERNAME1:

Trwa aktualizowanie zasad...

Aktualizacja zasad użytkownika została ukończona pomyślnie.
Aktualizacja zasad komputera została ukończona pomyślnie.

gpupdate exited on COMPUTERNAME1 with error code 0.

\\COMPUTERNAME2:

Trwa aktualizowanie zasad...

Aktualizacja zasad użytkownika została ukończona pomyślnie.
Aktualizacja zasad komputera została ukończona pomyślnie.

gpupdate exited on COMPUTERNAME2 with error code 0.

...
