AutoExit 2009 UR-1 Released!

It’s been a while since AutoExit has been updated; the reason is porting everything to Vail, digging into the new SDK, writing some articles, and working on the future versions of the addins… too much to handle actually 😉

But… I finally managed to get some help to translate AutoExit into Spanish which a lot of people asked for.

Another new feature is that it now contains a commandline tool that can be used to execute shutdown/reboot/… actions.
This can be very useful in cases where you script or want to execute actions in other applications that then execute the commandline tool and have the power of AutoExit to shutdown/reboot/… machines.

I couldn’t have done the translation on my own of course, I got great help from F. Javier Fernández Gómez.
He did a great job, have a look yourself!

    Where is this commandline tool you speak of? And what commandline options does it support? I am trying to make my client machines shutdown when the server shuts down due to a power outage.

      Hi Lutz,

      The commandline executable is located on the server, in this folder: ‘c:\program files\windows home server\aecmd.exe’
      It can be used to execute actions on the AutoExit clients, just like you would do via the console.

      Syntax: ipaddress /option
      Example: 192.168.0.10 /shutdown
      Example: 192.168.0.15 /message “Hi Jason!”

      ipaddress : The IP address of the client machine that you want to execute the action on
      /shutdown Shut down the client without force.
      /shutdownforce Shut down the client with force.
      /reboot Reboot the client without force.
      /rebootforce Reboot the client with force.
      /logoff Log off the current user without force.
      /logoffforce Log off the current user with force.
      /hibernate Put the client in hibernation mode without force (if supported).
      /hibernateforce Put the client in hibernation mode with force (if supported).
      /suspend Put the client in sleep mode without force. /suspendforce Put the client in sleep mode with force.
      /lockworkstation Lock the client.
      /message Send a message to the client.

      It’s also documented in the help file.

      Best Regards,
      Nick

    Thanks for the reply, Nick. I’m all set.

    Just as an FYI, I was looking in Guidelines.pdf and aecmd.exe is not mentioned there, nor are the commandline params.

    After your note about Program Files\Windows Home Server I logged on and found it. Might be worth mentioning in Guidelines.pdf (if there are future updates).

    Thanks again,

    – Lutz
