To Remote Restart a Windows 2003 Server Machine

Sometimes for whatever reason it may be (the server exceeded the maximum number of connections due to not logging off properly, etc etc) you might need to do a remote restart of a machine.

To achieve this. The following two steps can be taken:

1. Set the admin password for the current machine you are on to be the same as the machine that you wish to shutdown.

2. Open a command prompt and type 'shutdown -i' you should then be given a graphical user interface to restart any server you wish to. The rest is pretty much self explanatory.
