Hallo Peter, thank you for your reply.

I checked out your Link and i think this is the string i need-->
PS C:\> Restart-Computer -ComputerName "Server01" -Impersonation Anonymous -Authentication PacketIntegrity

My Question what kind of adress is it which i have to put for "Server01" I only have a shortcut Remotecomputer.rdp how can i find out the adress?

Thank you very much

Run it - it should display you a pre-connection confirmation page with the computer name/address...

No it shows me nothing. I am working in a company and the RemoteComputer is installed on a VMWare server everything is already set up. I dont have to log in or anything.

I Want to restart the remotecomputer via script from my lokal machine.

What kind of adress should it be ? An IP Adress? Thanks in advance

IP address or machine name are both perfect...
You should ask the system admin or check the VM from the inside (ipconfig can help)...
