shutdown windows machine from bash cli
My Windows VMs sit on top of a linux (gentoo) host. If i need to reboot the host, i need to manually shut down all 4 windows VMs first.
Its a bit of a hassel.
Is there any way to invoke a Windows server shutdown from the command line on the linux host?

Works a treat
net rpc shutdown -I IPADDRESS -U USERNAME%PASSWORD

Is that specific to the software you use to run the virtual machines ie virtual box as apposed to say vmware fusion or the likes ( obviously not sure what software they do for virtual machines on linux ).

No, it's using a samba tool from the linux box itself so it's not specific.
