Shutdown - i

Most of the time when I add multiple servers or even single server to restart it won't work. Shows computer name is not valid and in parentheses no 53. Is this since users are connected or do I need to enter fqdn.

code: the shutdown command for a server has to come from within that server... this is not something over looked but as a safeguard. Programs like the Microsoft remote management (and whatever vmware calles their one) record the settings so they can act as the server from outside.
