I am getting the following error while restarting the IIs from a batch file.

Access denied, you must be an administrator of the remote computer to use this
command. Either have your account added to the administrator local group of
the remote computer or to the domain administrator global group

(I am able to restart the IIS from the command prompt manually
by using the following command iisreset %MachineName% /stop)

Even though i have logged in as an Administrator i am receiving this error.

I made UAC to off and restarted my server,Still i am getting the same..

Any help in this regard willl be highly appreciated...!

Thanks in Avance.........:)

As the error said, you have to be Administrator of the machine whose IIS is being reset by your command.

Also, make sure you are running your command prompt/batch file in Administrator context.

Following are the commands I use to do the job.

iisreset %ComputerName% /stop
iisreset %ComputerName% /start

Did you run your command prompt by using "Run as Administrator"?

Yes i am running as an administrator only..!

Well, the commands I gave work fine when I use them :)
why not you just try iisreset from batch file as see what happens?(Of course do "Run as Administrator")
