Each computer has to have the same user name and password with ADMIN rights to the account for it to work.

The way that I got it to work was to activate the true administrator on each computer....

Per Computer, Elevate the Dos Command Prompt...

type: net user administrator /active:yes

Deactivate admin: net user administrator /active:no

Reboot computer, log into the admin account and set your password by hitting ALT CTRL DEL

Once complete on all computers. Try the Shut down command.

run command prompt as the local admin of the machine you're trying to shut down.

shift right click command prompt and select "run as different user".

Brady is correct too....
If you do it my way, you don't have to do it everytime...

Brady is good if you want to do it one time or you don't do it often...

I mean you can create a batch file to take care of everything, just a lot of programming and switches in the text file *lol*

hey

Try using "shutdown -i". It's less likely to make a mistake.

In Windows 7 and Windows Vista, the UAC strips administrative priveledges from users that are connecting remotely. This is called the Remote UAC LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy. Instructions can be found at: How to change the Remote UAC LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy registry setting in a Windows Vista image. This applies to both Windows Vista and Windows 7.
