Jim, thanks for that. I upgraded both machines and it's all magically started working, even from our HostMonitor software.

Hi Jim...do I need to install PowerShell 2.0 on the Windows 2003 box or can I still use the command line? Does the Windows 2008 box need upgrading (it's not R2)?

comment Why do I get Access Denied when using WinRM?
I'm running this from CMD.EXE. I now have two identical accounts on each server (both with the same password and both members of Administrators). If I leave the password out I get prompted for one. If I enter it or leave blank I still get Access Denied. I also tried leaving out the credentials all together, still no joy.

I wouldn't expect the local Administrator account to hang on a UAC hidden prompt, a regular account that's a member of administrators maybe. That said I'll take a look at winrm in the fresh light of day.

@Jimb - The originating server is running Windows 2003 SP2, the remote server is running Windows 2008 SP2. I'm not constrained to PSEXEC. WinRM is a new one on me, will take a look.

@john - bingo mate! There's a dollar and a grave ($ and ^) in the password. Didn't think these would interfere. Make that an answer and I'll upvote and tick.

Thanks for the reply. I did try specifying WEB1928\remoteexec as the user, but sadly no joy.
