Hi,

I am trying to get the output by running a cmd on a remote computer.

Here is my syntax:

paexec -accepteula \remotecomputer -h -u "*" -p "**" hostname

Here is the output that I am getting:

Failed to connect to \remotecomputeripADMIN$. You can't connect to the file share because it's not secure. This share requires the obsolete SMB1 protocol, which is unsafe and could expose your system to attack.Your system requires SMB2 or higher.

HI Mifi,

The Error is letting you know that the SMB1 protocol needed to access the remote computer is not available. Did you follow the link in the error message to review what could be done to allow this to happen? Here are a few links with good information.
