How do I remote Boot NT?

A. NT does not support remote boot. It is possible to reboot a machine from another computer using the Shutdown Manager that comes with the NT resource kit.

You could also reboot by using the shutdown.exe resource kit utility and specify another machine name.

C:\>shutdown \\<machine name> /r /y /c

Software such as PC Anywhere can also remotely reboot machines.
