Trying to figure out the syntax for running DSU 1.6 for Windows against a remote Windows server. The goal is to have a batch file or PS script run on one server in the domain that updates all the others.
Per DSU documentation, it's--
How do I furnish the username and password as "credentials"? Is it possible to have it run as SYSTEM on the remote machine and not have to provide a username and password on the command line?
Domain or local admin username by itself doesn't work; (wouldn't expect it to).
"NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM@HOSTNAME" doesn't work.
SYSTEM@HOSTNAME doesn't work.
Same when I use the FQDN of the server.
This is the output I get from all of these attempts:
Try separating the user/pass with a colon. Also, try using the system IP address instead of host name to bypass possible DNS issues.
You could also try putting it in quotes.
I would also create a local account for testing to bypass any domain authentication issues. You should be able to just user user:qass instead of domain\user:qass with a local account.
<I replaced all of the p's in password with q's because of the automatic emoticons on our forums>
