I want to shutdown all 90 systems at once.it can be possible with batch file using "SHUTDOWn" command
I worte the batch file using that command but it is not working

My Batch file like this

Shutdown -s -m \\Test1 -t 60 -c "Your systems will be shutdown within 1 minite. please save your work"
Shutdown -s -m \\Test2 -t 60 -c "Your systems will be shutdown within 1 minite. please save your work"
Shutdown -s -m \\Test3 -t 60 -c "Your systems will be shutdown within 1 minite. please save your work"
Shutdown -s -m \\Test4 -t 60 -c "Your systems will be shutdown within 1 minite. please save your work"

this is my batch file.this is not working...please help me..

Note: When i exceute the same command form command prompt it will work fine...for that i have to type that same command for 90 times to shutdown all compters.

i am using another batch file..it shows like this...

@Echo off
cd\
Echo bunny=Program
REM ****************************

I remember being able to shutdown computers with either ip addresses or like you were doing: network names. the only problems i found were setting domain names and especially that the batch file will have to be launched from an administrative account or with an account with a higher privilege level than the users of the PCs you are trying to shutdown otherwise you get a windows security 'Access is denied' error. i am however no too sure on what switches you should use. try shutdown.exe /? and take it from there.
