    I made a bat file and put in it "shutdown -s -t 00" on most of my Windows XP
    Pro clients it runs fine as a scheduled task. Three of my clients put up the
    "Required priviledge is not held by the client." and the PC does not

    What priviledge do I have to set to get shutdown.exe to run on these clients?

    Yes, it seems the easiest soulution is to copy shutdown.exe from a PC with
    SP3 on it to the c:\windows\system32 folder of the SP2 clients.

    This work around does not work. If the user has Administrative access
    shutdown.exe works, if the user has User access shutdown.exe does not work.
    It does not matter if it is SP2 or SP3. I need shutdown.exe to work in User
    access. Can you tell me how to work around this?

    Open the properties of the task and set it to run as administrator and set
    the password.
