PSexec + Examples

To work remotely on another server, use PsExec.

 

You can find the appropiate software on the next page: PsExec / SysInternalsSuite

Extract the software on C:\Tools\ or your liking.

 

Open the command prompt and execute the follwing command:

runas /user:domain\Administrator cmd

Your credentials for your domain will be asked. Enter it.

Navigate to C:\Tools

 

To start the command prompt on a remote server execute the following:

C:\Tools>PsExec /accepteula \\servernaam CMD

You are in the command prompt of the remote server.

 

You can check the following to be sure.

echo %computername%

and the username:

echo %username%

 

You can start or stop a service (if you know by name, else look it up)

sc stop 'service name'

sc start 'service name'

shutdown -r -t 00 (reboot in 0 seconds)

 

You can execute a command directly without entering the shell on the remote server by typing:

PSEXEC \\servernaam -u username -p password CMD /C 'command to be executed, remember your in C:\Windows\System32'

 

To be able to be able to access a Windows 7 machine you must use the -h switch.

PSEXEC \\servernaam -u username -p password CMD /C /H 'command to be executed, remember your in C:\Windows\System32'

 

Good luck
