How to use PsExec
People who have been working as system admin since the days of Windows NT can understand how hard it was to configure the Windows computers remotely back in the days. A lot of people tend to use telnet back then to remotely login and configure things but it had quite a lot of problems.
The PsExec is a great command-line utility from PsTools suite that allows the system admins to run programs on one or more remote computers while redirecting the program’s output to the local computer. It was originally developed by Mark Russinovich from Sysinternals. The Sysinternals is now owned by Microsoft. In this detailed guide to PsExec, I explained how to use PsExec with a few real world examples. You can even use PsExec with PowerShell to perform administrative operations that are hard to do with either PowerShell remoting or PsExec alone.
