Shudown.exe Problem: Remote remote shutdown is not supported on the target computer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Here's the command:

    shutdown -r -t 1 -m \\computername

    I can ping computername

    Windows Firewall is disabled

    3rd-party antivirus firewall is not installed

    Any ideas how to fix this?

  • Hi The Victim.

    Are you executing the command from an administrative command prompt?
    Is the account you're executing the command under a local administrator for the target machine?

  • Thank you for the quick reply!

    Yes and yes.  Specifically, I am logged into the domain controller as the domain administrator using an elevated command prompt.  The domain administrator is in domain admins group and the domain admins group is in the target computer's local administrators group.
