PsExec Access Denied Problem Solution

when we try to run remote programs from local system this error saying “Access Denied” may come. To overcome this, you have to add a registry key.

  1. Open RegEdit on your remote server
  2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
  3. Add a new DWORD value called LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy
  4. Set its value to 1
  5. Reboot your remove server
  6. Try running PSExec again from your local server

You should be able to execute remote commands.
