Here is what I am trying:
Launch ami-c98d55a0 with t1.micro size and a security group with inbound tcp ports 139, 445, 3389 open.
Using paping, I get a response on port 3389 but not 139 and 445, so I remote desktop into my instance and turn off the firewall completely.
I then try the following in cmd.exe on my local machine (Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit), running as Administrator.
C:\Windows\system32>psexec \\ec2-XX-XX-XXX-XXX.compute-1.amazonaws.com -u Administrato r -p "XXX" cmd.exe PsExec v1.98 - Execute processes remotely Copyright (C) 2001-2010 Mark Russinovich Sysinternals - www.sysinternals.com Couldn't access ec2-23-20-216-189.compute-1.amazonaws.com: The network path was not found. Make sure that the default admin$ share is enabled on ec2-23-20-216-189.compute- 1.amazonaws.com.
I am very new to windows server administration, so I am not too sure where to go from here. I am getting a lost trying to figure out how to enable the default admin$ share.
EDIT: So I guess this is a very bad idea. Can you recommend a method? I need to run a bunch of .bat or a series of commands I can call from cmd.
