Server Utilities

A small server admin tool built on maxscript to automate some of the more annoying tasks needed while managing a small renderfarm. Rebooting/Shutting down remote servers, Viewing with VNC or Remote Desktop, Restart/Stopping/Querying remote services, Listing/Starting or Stopping remote processes
 
Based heavily off of and meant to replace, a large mass of dos batchfiles that utilize the pstools suite of commandline tools.
 
It will also print out the resulting dos commandline to the listening if you're feeling frisky and want to set up some more custom stuff.

Pstools information can be found here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896649.aspx if you'd like
Also using a VNCViewer that was taken from the http://www.uvnc.com suite.
 
Cheers, Dave Buchhofer

Does the VraySpawner2010 show up as 2009 ? I can't see 2010 but there appears to be two instances of 2009 in the utility list.

Simple fix.  The problem

Simple fix.  The problem was with directories with spaces in them.  Just change the fullprocess line to this.  fullprocess = "\""+w_directory+"\\"+process+".exe"+"\""  and it's fixed.

Nice looking script but

Nice looking script but doesn't seem to work.  I've tested a few things out and it seems it's not inputing the \ and " characters properly with \\ and \".  I'm trying to modify it myself to see if I can fix it.  I've been wanting a script like this for a long time and was about to write one up myself so I'm quite pleased to see it's already been done.  Thanks!  -Ryan
