2 DOS commands in 1 line with wait? function [Solved]

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I need help with a DOS line I am trying to send to another computer.
I am using a program called psexec to connect to another computer on my domain and perform a cmd-command on that computer remote.
The software works great, but when I try to automate this and put both commands in 1 line it wont work

example:
psexec hostname cmd
(this starts the service and after 5-10 seconds it is ready)

then I want it to do this command after loading is done:
net localgroup administrators username /add

but when I try these two commands together it wont start the second command. both & and && wont work.

Kind Regards,
Akarillon

cmd is the human interface. You don't have to run cmd to be able to run commands. Example:

psexec \\hostname net localgroup administrators username /add

But, you can use cmd to run commands anyway, like this:

psexec \\hostname cmd /c net localgroup administrators username /add

      Hello I would like to know if there is a way to return a sentence in cmd when I launch from it (because I add arguments).
      For example, diskpart.exe which help to manage the key and hdd connected, when you launch it with the parameter "/f" the app return a sentence saying that it don't recognize the parameter "/f" and it return the sentence in the cmd where i started the application, not a new one.
      That's what I want to do but I couldn't find anything that would solve my problem on internet and on AutoIt like ConsoleWrite / ConsoleWriteError (don't work).
       
      Thanks

      I'm attempting to capture the output from the command line tool PSEXEC. I'm using AutoIT to run an instance of PSEXEC against a remote PC to audit Local Admins in my environment using net.exe (C:\Windows\System32> net localgroup administrators). However the usual trick I use to capture command line output does not appear to work well with PSEXEC, as the bottom portion of the output is missing from the return. Any ideas or recommendations are greatly appreciated.  
       
      Here is what I'm working with: 
      ;This script will read from a list of hosts and report who has local admin privileges on the machine #RequireAdmin Global $fileName = @ScriptDir & '\test.txt' ;hostlist, one host per line readHostList() ;Read list of hosts Func readHostList() Local $file = FileOpen($fileName, 0) While 1 $line = FileReadLine($file) If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop ConsoleWrite($line & @CRLF) ;MsgBox(0,0,$line) getLocalAdmins($line) WEnd FileClose($file) EndFunc ;run PSEXEC to list local admins Func getLocalAdmins($remotePC) Local $testFile = @ScriptDir &'\test234.txt' FileOpen($testFile, 1) Local $psexec = 'psexec \\' & $remotePC & ' net localgroup administrators' FileWriteLine($testFile, _RunCmd($psexec) ) FileClose($testFile) EndFunc ;Used to return CLI output Func _RunCmd($sCommand) Local $nPid = Run(@Comspec & " /c" & $sCommand, @SystemDir, @SW_Hide, 8), $sRet = "" If @Error then Return "ERROR:" & @ERROR ProcessWait($nPid) While 1 $sRet &= StdoutRead($nPID) If @error Or (Not ProcessExists ($nPid)) Then ExitLoop WEnd Return $sRet EndFunc  
      ## If i manually run the command on the remote PC via PSEXEC I will get the following output: 
      PsExec v2.11 - Execute processes remotely

      The command completed successfully.
       
      ## The returned output from running the above script is as follows:

      I need to be able to issue a command line which has a folder in parentheses as
       
      attrib +s +h "absolute folder to hide"  I've read through many posts here but nothing quite hacks how to use a variable as the folder in parentheses.
      I've tried
       
      Local $dosattrib = "attrib +s +h " & ""$hidFolder"" ; $hidFolder built up from decrypted encrypted C:\Hidden Folder which I do not want visible when compiled version is reverse engineered  which errors with excess parentheses but in single "" it doesn't work.
      There seems to be a relatively complicated method to make it work but surely there's a simple way?
