Beginner's help

i’m having trouble starting using PS…

i’m trying to run basic test to figure out if psexec already running (it’s a domain network, lots of restrictions)

so i run:

d:\pstools>psexec \ ipconfig
nothing happens
** i get a fresh command line **

anybody knows what can be the issue here?
thanks a lot!

thank you Matt!
unfortunately i couldn’t find solution there so i came up here…
anyways looks like it relate to some restrictions in gpo…

all best,
