net command gone
I have been using the net command for a while now to remotely shutdown my windows machine, I believe that it comes with the samba package.
"net rpc shutdown -f -I IP_ADDRESS -U USERNAME%PASSWORD"
I run a Ubuntu 10.10 x86 Netbook edition computer, and have recently updated my software because my computer asked me to and the net command recently stopped working so I assume this is the cause.
It was simply saying that the net command did not exist, but after playing around installing packages I installed samba4 and got it recognizing the command net. But it no longer works the same and does not support "rpc shutdown" nor does it appear to have any replacement for it.
Was the command simply depreciated? if so how can I stop this from happening again, I use net all the time and am not happy that it would disappear without warning.
Can I get the command back somehow, or do any of your have a replacement?
Any help would be appreciated.
