Execute process on remote host


Remote Execution

When executing process remotely, AutoAdministrator temporarily creates the "AutoAdministrator Remote Execution Service" (AARemoteExecSvc) which then executes the command remotely and transmits the output back to AutoAdministrator.


Local Execution

When executing processes locally the $HOSTNAME variable will be resolved to the host name which is currently being processed. For example, specifying ping as the executable and $HOSTNAME as the argument will ping every selected host.


When working with Unix networks, AutoAdministrator can utilize a tool like plink.exe to execute commands on a remote Unix host and display the output inside AutoAdministrator.


Condense Output

When checked, removes all new line characters of the process output and replaces it with the space character. Hovering over the output will show the full output in a tooltip.


Process Timeout (Local Execution Only)

The maximum number of seconds the process will be allowed to run. Set to 0 to indicate no timeout.


Show Process on Desktop (Local Execution Only)

If checked, shows the process' window on the desktop.
