Remote Shutdown Computers on LAN

Right click on desktop, create new short-cut.

Type shutdown.exe -i

Click next, type in name for your short-cut e.g. shutdown computers

Click finish.

Run the short-cut you just created. Now you can browse the network for computers to shutdown/reboot etc. or just type in the IP/Name of the computer.

You can even broadcast a message, and schedule the shutdown.

Cool for sysadmins.

NOTE:  You will only be able to shut down computers that you have admin access on!

    1) Open an command prompt ("DOS" Window) 2) Type "net use \ipc$ /user:" and enter the password for that system, when prompted. 3) Then execute "shutdown -l -s -m \ -t 1" if you're shutting it down and don't care who's on it... All of this could be put into a script and run. You could execute the net use statements to connect to all of the computers at one time and then run the shutdown script on each afterwards. Of course, you'll have to pass your password to the script, which isn't a secure way to do it unless you do something like set it as a command line variable... Many possibilities there.
