    The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect

    Am I supposed to add anything else to the computer.txt file?
    What exactly are you putting in your text file? e.g. Are you doing "ComputerName" ? If so it'll probably need to be "\\ComputerName" etc etc

    Can you access your workstations through normal UNC paths, either in run box, or explorer etc?

    Could be your server name isn't recognised either, best check that.

    If you don't mind, it'd help if you posted the whole script you're trying (both parts), could just be a typo etc

    Could be many things

    I agree with Steve it could be a simple a typo. Could you post the command syntax that you are using? Tip I would suggest just running CMD on the remote machine and than try the command you want to run.

    psexec \\computer1 -u domain\username -p Pa$$w0rd cmd

    This helps when you are trying to trouble shoot if it is the command you type into psexec or just the command itself is the problem.
