    Remote Server Restart

    by philipscodes ·

    I work remotely, in another country, away from where our physical company server exists. Occasionally, I need to restart the server, when the users are not able to access the server via rdp. What is the best and secure way to do so and are there any security settings I need to first open in the Windows server? In doing so, are there any security threats I should be aware of?

      Some of my friends must want to know the steps to restart or shutdown the server remotely. It is very simple and in this Post I am going to explain the same.

      1. Open command prompt, and type “shutdown /m \\RemoteServerName /r /c “Comments”“. I used multiple switches in this command e.g. /m is for remote Server. RemoteServerName needs to be replaced by the name of Server which you are planning to restart remotely, /r is for restart it can be replaced by /s if you want to shutdown the server. To add the comments add switch /c.

      2. Another command to restart or shutdown the Server remotely is Shutdown /i. Type Shutdown /i on the command prompt and it will open another dialogue box.

      3. Click on Add to mention list of Server that you are planning to restart or shutdown remotely.

      4. On the Remote Shutdown Dialogue page, select Restart or Shutdown options.

      5. On the same page, change the Display warning time and select the Option. Click OK to restart or Shutdown the Server.
