PSEXEC cmd

Has anyone else run into an issue where I cannot run a remote command prompt on a PC with Check Point agent on it? Still doing some testing but seems to be pointing towards Check Point. Thanks in advance for any help.

I am able to run psexec commands and powershell commands remotely to other computers with no probs.  Do you get an error message?  What is the command you are trying to run?

I start a command prompt as administrator om my PC. I then type "psexec.exe \\remotepcname cmd

99% of the time I get the following:

Error establishing communication with PsExec service on remotepcname: Access Denied

Is the user account you are running psexec under, or the account specified in the command itself an admin on the target system? psexec needs the rights on the target system to install and start a service.

Yes the account I am using to start psexec is a local administrator on all PC's in the domain.
