I'm trying to signal a VB virtual to spin up on a remote computer without having to remote into that host first (not trying to run a virtual across the lan, that sounds painful). It seems needlessly tedious to RDP into the virtual host, start up the VMs, log out, then remote into the VMs.
My old desktop has become little other than a virtualbox host, and 90% of the time, I just turn it on and remote into its VMs. I've created shortcuts to the VMs, but now I'd like to skip the extra step of remoting into that box to launch them. I haven't looked into launching them on startup, because I need the first to launch fully before spinning up the 2nd.
I'm stumbling on trying to achieve this with psexec, but if there's a less kludgy way to do it (possibly with some new win7 toys I haven't used yet?), that would be sweet.
