2 Windows 2012 Server, no firewall, nothing triggered in MS Security Center Endpoint Protection.
Server A (GIS Server) utilizes a local account to perform various task; this account must exist on all other servers for it to be able to access those resources (Targer: Server B). To reiterate, this account exists on both servers and has an identical password.
PSEXEC works fine when using the powershell etc since I'm logged in as a domain admin. For testing purposes, I'm launching powershell via 'Run As' the local account. Try as I might, I keep getting 'access denied'.
- I have tried providing (within the PSEXEC statement) a domain Admin (specifying both 'home' and the FQDN as sep. tests) account as well as the credentials for the local account.
- I have tried given the local account on the target server admin privileges
- MS Endpoint Security logs nothing in its history
- Event Viewer on the target server does show a security logon & log off event for the 'source' account but I don't seen anything of note in the event.
- I have tried specifying a working directory where the local account has read/write/execute privileges
- I believe I have tried every switch configuration
- I have researched the PSEXEC forums on windows and searched exhaustively all this morning
- This is not an empty password situation
I can provide more information about the entire workflow, but wanted to keep this very focused on what looks like the exact point of failure. I humbly turn to your expertise! When this is working it will bridge a major workflow for our work. many thanks!
