How to Execute a Remote Command

Run a command on a remote computer with One2Many.

Before you begin:
Who can use this feature? The One2Many feature is available for the following:
Basic/Plus/Premier Subscription Modular Subscription User Permissions
  • Premier
  • Automation
  • Create and Modify One2Many tasks
  • Run One2Many tasks
Important: This type of task can only be deployed to Windows hosts.
  1. In LogMeIn Central, go to the One2Many > Tasks page.
  2. Click Create Task.

    Result: The Create Task page is displayed.

  3. Select Execute a remote command.
  4. Name the task in the Task name field.
    Since you may end up with many saved tasks, be sure to use a clear and specific name.
  5. Under Language, select the language in which to run the task.
    Language Character Limit
    CMD 1000
    PowerShell 15000
  6. Type the Command to execute.
    Remember: You cannot use One2Many to reboot a computer; therefore, remote commands and custom tasks cannot contain reboot commands.
  7. Choose whether to assign a plan now, or later:
    • To save your task and create a new plan that will be used to run the task, click Save and continue
    • To save the task without assigning a plan, click Save and close (you will be able to assign a plan later)
What to do next:
Tip: Once you have assigned a task to a plan and have run the plan, you can monitor progress and view logs on the One2Many > Plans page. You can view logs for completed tasks on the One2Many > History page.
