Using the latest version of psexec.exe we've run into an error.

Machine A
I'm logged on with a desktop admin account

Machine B
I'm logged on with a desktop admin account (the same account as machine A)


On macine A I run psexec and target machine B. I get a psexec error of Access Denied.

The psexe command is:
psexec \\MachineB -c -s -f MyInstaller.exe

what would cause the access denied error?

desktop admin account as in local admin account?

even though it's the local admin account, it's not the same account on both computers.

if it's network admin account, it's not the same problem.

Try preceding the local account name with Machine B's computername when you pass Machine B's credentials on the command line:psexec \\MachineB -u MachineB\local_admin_account -p local_admin_account_password -c -s -f MyInstaller.exe
