The PSExec utility by Winternals Software

By Bryan Muehlberger, ITworld |  How-to

This week we discuss a very handy freeware utility called PSExec. This
utility was written by Mark Russinovich (mark@sysinternals.com) owner of
Winternals Software (http://www.winternals.com) and can be downloaded
free at:

I recently stumbled across this amazing utility during our war against
the MSBlast virus outbreak that took place last week. We needed to
deploy the patch for the virus to over 100 servers, and needed a way to
do this that was quicker than using Terminal Services, SMS Remote
Control, or PC Anywhere.

By simply typing a basic command, we were able to install the patch and
then manually reboot the server using the 'shutdown.exe' resource kit
utility by using the command:

shutdown
