Re: Remote deployment tools

PsExec should still work on Windows Server 2008, although if UAC is enabled it'll change the way you run PsExec.

What is the problem you are having?

Windows Powershell can also be used for remote installs.

Re: Remote deployment tools

I am trying to deploy the registry settings on windows 2008 server remotely..
While executing thru PSEXEC from any windows xp or 2008 server it shows access denied...

created a batch file as below

@echo on
net use p: \\x.x.x.x\foldername
copy p:\xyz.reg c:\
reg import c:\xyz.reg
net use p: /delete
exit

Re: Remote deployment tools

Assuming you have an up to date version of PsExec.

If you try running PsExec from an elevated cmd prompt (using administrative credentials for the remote system) and use the -h parameter do you still get access denied?

  Code:
-h         If the target system is Vista or higher, has the process
           run with the account's elevated token, if available.

Re: Remote deployment tools

If all you're doing is registry changes, just use group policy: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/libr ... 53092.aspx

That's much easier to manage.

Re: Remote deployment tools

My approach for GPO was primary but due to mix environment of servers ( Windows 2003, 2008) in same OU which is making tough time..
My only target is windows 2008.. also i am using psexec 1.98 version.

Thanks

Re: Remote deployment tools

Ah, maybe try WMI filtering then: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/libr ... 36(v=ws.10).aspx

That might help if all the target systems share a common attribute.

Re: Remote deployment tools

Tried appying WMI filter on GPO for windows 2008 platforms
Please help me to verify the below query is incorrect

Select * from Win32_operatingsystem Where (caption Like "microsoft Windows server 2008%)
Select * from Win32_operatingsystem where version like "6.1%" and (producttype = "1" or producttype = "3")



thanks

Re: Remote deployment tools

Try:

  Code:
select * from Win32_OperatingSystem WHERE Caption LIKE "%Server 2008%"


ProductType 1 is for Client OS, If you're targeting Domain Controllers (2) and Member Servers (3):

  Code:
select * from Win32_OperatingSystem WHERE Version LIKE "6.1%" AND ( ProductType = "2" or ProductType = "3" )


The above can be shortened to:

  Code:
select * from Win32_OperatingSystem WHERE Version LIKE "6.1%" and ProductType <> "1"
