how to restart other windows 7 home with using cmd?

hi to all,

I am trying to use the Shutdown command to shut down a remote windows 7 home os computer with my windows 7 Professsional .Both computers are in the same Workgroup. But the following command shutdown /m \\otherpcname /s returns the error Access is denied. (5) I have tried using the Administrative Command prompt but no luck. Any Ideas.

i can connect XP os computer through remote desktop and through that i can shutdown the XP os computer from my windows 7 but using command prompt i m not.

please any body solve the problem of Access denied (5).

How about user name and passwords.


For instance...for it to work well on mines... I accessed all the admin accounts on my compuers and made them have all the same passwords... so i have the same elevated permissions with no denied access. The computer knows I am the same all around person accessing all the computers.

If you are mike on one computer and you dont have a user name "mike" on the other, those computers won't reconigize you; therefore, access is denied.

Here you go:

net use \\computername\ipc$ /u:UserName Pa$$w0rd
shutdown -m \\computername -f -s -t 0

That should do it.

To bad there wasn't a switch to imply the username and pass into the shutdown command. I mean it is obviously an issue. one of these days... the guy who wrote that program will do it...

This seems to be a MS thing. I completely agree that many of the commands should have the option to provide username and password as well as collect them securely. However, MS chooses not to do it that way. I read somewhere why but for the life of me I can't remember the reason now.

Funny thing with Microsoft... they never have a real legit reason for anything they do. Just like when fox cancels all the good TV shows.
