I'm running windows server 2008, and there's a lot of computers in the workplace. I'd like to be able to run shutdown.exe automatically at about 9PM on most of them, with the exception of a few of the administration rooms and the servers themselves. Anyone know how I could do this without having to physically set a scheduled task on each computer by hand?


You could script this on a server or admin workstation using psshutdown and feed it a list of the desired workstations.

    Standard shutdown.exe can process remote PCs too (with -m \\COMPUTERNAME option). – Sergey Jan 17 '12 at 13:59
