I am getting the following error if I try to use PsExec (
psexec \\MyServer cmd, nothing fancy)
PsExec v2.1 - Execute processes remotely Copyright (C) 2001-2013 Mark Russinovich Sysinternals - www.sysinternals.com Error establishing communication with PsExec service on MyServer: Das System kann die angegebene Datei nicht finden.
(Translation of the last part: the system cannot find the file specified)
System information for \\MyServer: Uptime: 346 days 22 hours 24 minutes 18 seconds Kernel version: Windows Server 2012 Standard, Multiprocessor Free Product type: Standard Edition Product version: 6.2 Service pack: 0 Kernel build number: 9200 Registered organization: Registered owner: Windows User IE version: 9.0000 System root: C:\Windows Processors: 1 Processor speed: 2.9 GHz Processor type: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5670 @ Physical memory: 2 MB Video driver: VMware SVGA 3D
Now I've read that I should kill the PSEXESVC process on the server, stop the service and delete the service. I did that, but as soon as I retry it, it just recreates the service and it keeps running again.
We also tried to disable the virus scanner for a short test, but that didn't work either.
The best thing is: It worked 2 days ago!
I am out of ideas, maybe someone else could give me a hint?
