Following on from this question:
I took the advice from Jim B and installed WinRM. To recap I have two servers:
- HMon01 - runs Windows 2003 Standard SP2
- Web1928 - runs Windows 2008 Standard SP2 (not R2)
Both servers are standalone.
I installed WinRM for Windows 2003 from here and configured WinRM as follows on both machines:
Client NetworkDelayms = 5000 URLPrefix = wsman AllowUnencrypted = false Auth Basic = true Digest = true Kerberos = true Negotiate = true Certificate = true DefaultPorts HTTP = 80 HTTPS = 443 TrustedHosts = *
The problem I have is that if I remotely execute commands using the remote machine's built in Administrator account then all is well.
However I have an account on the remote machine named
remoteexec which is a member of the Administrators group (we disable our Administrator accounts). If I use this account then I get
Access Denied errors. I've done all the usual things such as checking passwords and the like.
Why would this be?
