reports of networked pc's
#1
I think it would be usefull to be able to create reports of all your networked pc's while you're working only at 1 pc, with SIW-technician:


- you don't have to move physically to each pc
- no usb-stick in every pc
- no log-off, log-on to admin at every pc
- admin wins a lot of time

Sysinternals' psexec can be used to remotely run SIW

Dear Mr Topola,
Thank you, I tested, but I think I'm doing something wrong.

I have 2 pc's: testpc1 and testpc2, with access too each other.
I'd like to have: SIW on testpc1, getting system information of testpc2.
On testpc1:
C:\PsTools\psexec \\testpc2 "c:\program files\siw\siw.exe"
result:
c:\program files\siw\siw.exe exited on testpc2 with error code 0.

I haven't seen anything of SIW working...
What am I doing wrong?
Can you please send me an example?

Kind regards,
Dries

Only Technician's Version can be remotely executed with psexec.
You are trying to use SIW Home Edition (or SIW Business Edition).

I am using technicians version and getting the same error code.

got 2 machines:
\\server
\\pc1
command i start manually from \\server is:

C:\siw\psexec.exe \\pc1 C:\siw\siw.exe -log:xml=\\server\siwreports\report /silent /zip

Output is:

PsExec v1.98 - Execute processes remotely

Sysinternals - http://www.sysinternals.com

C:\siw\siw.exe exited on pc1 with error code 0.


it does work some time on something, between the Sysinternals - http://www.sysinternals.com and the error code there is about 60 secs

  • I'm assuming that you have write permission on \\server\siwreports\report directory.
  • Can you remotely execute another program (cmd.exe for example) on pc1 without user/password info (psexec's -u and -p arguments)?
  • Can you try, please, with DEBUG version of SIW from http://www.gtopala.com/download/siw-debug.exe (without /silent /zip) ?
    The DEBUG version automatically creates two c:\siw_debug.* files.
    Please check the c:\siw_debug.txt file.

It turned out i just have to start psexec with -s to run under system user. Then the report is being created

current command line is like this:

C:\siw\psexec.exe -s \\pc1 \\server\siwreports\siw.exe -log:xml=\\server\siwreports\report /silent /zip

Thank you. I really like SIW

I am trying to run SIW Technicians version on a remote pc connected with Teamviewer. Do I have to install Systinternals PsExec on the remote pc for this to work?

I know nothing about Teamviewer.
