It basically means it can't start the executable-process. (2) is the return code, which usually means something like 'file not found'. Try running with cmd /c before the shutdown.exe, to be sure to use all path variables.
Thanks for the reply. The script that runs looks like this:
REMEXEC20=shutdown.exe /r /f /t 0
Should I just change that to:
REMEXEC20=cmd /c shutdown.exe /r /f /t 0
Yes, try it like that.
Awesome, I'll give that a shot. I appreciate it. Unfortunately, I probably won't be able to attempt this until the next maintenance window.
While we're on the topic, I also see some of these on failed reboots:
Exec: Exec: Launch request <"shutdown.exe" /r /f /t 0> (sync 1, timeout 2147483647)
Sat, 22 Sep 2012 20:27:17 3124: Request Received "POST /services/exec HTTP/1.1"
Sat, 22 Sep 2012 20:27:17 3124: Exec: Exec: GetStatus: returning status 0 for terminated application 16dc (run state 0).
Do you know anything about that?
