After some trial & error I've gotten winexec to work on Linux.
This is identical to the psexec version by sysinternals.

http://eol.ovh.org/winexe/

http://eol.ovh.org/winexe/winexe-source-071026.tar.bz2

uncompress, then

./autogen.sh
./configure
make proto bin/winexe


Then for example, I have a VM with the netbios name vm-xptesting:

./winexe -U "admin" //vm-xptesting 'cmd.exe'
Password for [WORKGROUP\admin]:
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

C:\WINDOWS\system32>

Lastly do not forget to turn off simple file sharing on your windows machines.

I have been trying to get winexe to work for a couple of weeks also. psexec is a great tool if you have to support very many windows machines.

I had to run:

sudo apt-get install autoconf
sudo apt-get install automake

to get your code to go.

I also had to use "-U "domain\user" to get it to run under my account.

AND It works! Thanks!

sudo apt-get install build-essential automake autoconf
sudo apt-get install auto-apt checkinstall

cd /usr/src

tar xvjf winexe-source-071026.tar.bz2
cd winexe-source-071026
sh autogen.sh
auto-apt run ./configure
make proto bin/winexe
sudo checkinstall -D cp bin/winexe /usr/local/sbin/.

There is a simple way to install winexe on Ubuntu/Debian:


sudo apt-get install wmi-client

Then you have winexe and wmic (wmi query utility) installed and ready to use.

Has anyone tried this across the internet? Ive been able to get it to work internally on the lan, but i have servers around the internet i need to administer as well and would love to be able to use this in my backup scripts. any ideas on how to use it? Does it use a special port or something?

The wmi-client package has been removed, see http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=523638

In addition, the build scripts in winexe 0.90 don't work with autoconf >2.60

However, Zenoss is maintaining a copy of winexe that has been updated to work with new versions of autoconf.

So, the following worked for me on karmic:

sudo apt-get install build-essential autoconf checkinstall
cd /usr/src
svn co http://dev.zenoss.org/svn/trunk/wmi/Samba/source
mv source winexe-source-2010.04.09
cd winexe-source-2010.04.09
./autogen.sh
./configure
make proto bin/winexe
sudo checkinstall -D cp bin/winexe /usr/local/bin/.

So is there a way to get winexe in a package for Lucid? or do we have to manually install it?

The method mentioned by Phkillah also worked for me on Lucid 64bit

Thank you very much!

You can install it from one of these two ppa's:

https://launchpad.net/~richi-paraeasy/+archive/ppa/+packages
https://launchpad.net/~jdthood/+archive/winexe/+packages

Let me know if it works as I'm only getting errors from the Win7_64 box.

This PPA:

https://launchpad.net/~richi-paraeasy/+archive/ppa/+packages

contains a package identified as version "1.0.3a". However, the latest release of winexe has version number "1.00". The package in the above archive contains a winexe binary that identifies itself as version "0.80".

Winexe 1.00 is built by the openSUSE build service:

https://build.opensuse.org/package/show?package=winexe&project=home%3Aahajda%3Awinexe

Before I discovered this I made winexe 1.00 available in my own PPA:

https://launchpad.net/~jdthood/+archive/winexe/+packages
