Reboot SBS2011 box from a non-domain account on the same LAN
Posted on 2016-07-23
Small network with two servers. SBS 2011 & Server 2008.
Just today, nobody can log in remotely or get mail on any device.
The domain admin cannot login either. Gets invalid username or password message.
I can log on remotely to the Server 2008 box as the local admin, but of course that doesn't give me domain privileges.
I want to remotely reboot the SBS box. I've tried using shutdown.exe, but of course authentication fails.
Any suggestion as to how I might achieve this? I'll have physical access tomorrow but would love to solve this today.
