  • How to enable windows restart option through RDC

    Hi Everyone ,

    In my network we use active directory 2003 server

    the clients are windows xp with service pack 2 .

    Both client1 and client 2 are member of domain

    when the client 1 conects RDC to client 2 ,

    if client 1 wants to restarts or shutdown the client 2 it cannot be possible

    because it wont show the restart or shutdown option in that

    How can i give these permission

    Should i want to give some permission in the terminal services

    Helping this issue will be greatly appriciated

    Thanks & Regards

    Hi,
    client has to be member of specific groups (administrators, power users and backup operators by deafult) to be able to shutdown the system. You can change this in group policy but do you really need to give the users such permissions. They might accidentally shut down the system.

      i don't know if you can enable a button, but in the command prompt (on the remote system) you can just type:

      shutdown -s -r -t number of seconds

      -s is to shutdown
      -r is to reboot
      -t is the number of seconds to wait before it begins the process

      type: shutdown /? for more help.

      i believe only users with administrator access can do this.

      you can even write a batch file and have users double click on it. That is if you really want your remote users to shutdown/reboot remote computers.

        Just to be clear: your user cannot see the "shutdown" option after doing a 'ctl-alt-END' key sequence, or from the Start menu...?
