When administrators perform remote program installation on computer outside of their physical reach, or simply, perform some testing, sometimes they need to restart the computer in order to complete the installation or finish the work.

The syntax for the remote restart command looks like this:

"C:\Program Files\Resource Kit\shutdown.exe" \\comp1 /R T:05 "standard restart" /C
