Unhappy Shutdown Network Computers

I have problems shutting down computers on my network, when I type its name, it says "The network path was not found", Although I can enter remotely to the computer. I can do everything, except of shutting them down remotely.

Thanks in advance.

Do you have Administrator access and are they all Windows XP machines?

hmm... Thats a toughy...

Have you tried doing it by IP address instead of computer name? For example...
shutdown.exe -s -m \\192.168.x.x



Also are you using the full computer name? Another example... if I am trying to shutdown my apps server, instead of just typing

shutdown.exe -s -m \\apps

I would include the domain name as well...

shutdown.exe -s -m \\apps.marshalltown.k12.ia.us (of course that is assuming you are on a domain)

Lastly, Is there a router in between your computer and the computers you are trying to shutdown. It may be set to intercept some of that traffic!

Have you tried "shutdown -i" using this you can specify which computers to shutdown by browsing for them on the network. You can also set what to do e.g shutdown, logoff or resart.

Regards,
James.
