RUNRMTCMD
We run RUNRMTCMD from Iseries. This command was executing fine until 10/14/08. We had a powersurge at that time. Since then we can no longer get the RUNRMtCMD command to run a converter program on the PC. We can run the converter program on the PC manually - takes documents from network file and updates a file in the IFS on Iseries. But.. When we start the RUNRMTCMD from the ISERIES - it makes it to the PC but the PC then freezes on the CMD EXE screen. We also get a message "must load default printer" which we do have already setup. Not sure why this no longer works. we have checked and re-checked user id's and pwords and all of that seems fine. We are leaning toward sometype of authority issue but cannot see why or where. any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I think you need to check the services started on the Windows server. There should be a service for allowing remote commands.

    Yes, there is a 'remote services command' that is running and we did check and it looks ok. We get an 'access violation' on the pc when we finally end the frozen job.

    So it looks like you have some security setting incorrect. Check the properties of the service on the PC. It should have a tab somewhere to enter the authentication method. PDraebel
