Best Method to Execute Command on Remote System
Hey Guys -
I frequently use PowerShell, but found WinAutomation this morning when looking for an alternative for specific things and like it so far. There's one question I have, though; that I cannot find a solid answer for.
My Question: What would be the best method / action to execute a command on a remote Windows system?
The process I'm currently trying to create monitors folders local to the WinAutomation installation. Once a new file of a specific extension is added, I need to:
- Save it's path to a variable like %detectedpath%
- Create a new variable like %uncpath% where %detectedpath% is converted to a UNC path format
- Execute a command on a different Windows system where the command includes %uncpath% as an argument.
I didn't see any actions specifically for remote systems when editing the process so didn't know if there was an accompanying client I could install on the remote system or if I needed to resort to something like PSEXEC. I have full rights on both systems with one being Windows 10 and the other Windows Server 2016.
P.S.: Hope this is the right forum for this :)
Regarding your inquiry, please note that there is no accompanying client you could install on the remote system to run processes (besides of course installing a complete version of WinAutomation).
Using PsExec, would be a solution to what you are trying to achieve, since you can make use of the "Cmd Session" group of actions.
I hope the above makes sense.
