comment Why does my PowerShell script hang when called in PSEXEC via a batch (.cmd) file?
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.

Sorry dude, I asked this over on SO as well because it was a bit SO and a bit SF. I got this reply from a MS employee (Tobin Titus), it's a bug: stackoverflow.com/questions/1671702/…

comment How do I hide 'non-delegated' features in IIS 7?
Hi Scott, thanks for the response. Actually....I just discovered that if I disconnect and reconnect to a site using Remote IIS Manager the feature is indeed hidden from view. I thought that doing a right-click refresh on the site in Remote IIS Manager would refresh the Feature Pane accordingly, but not so.
