We're using Acronis True Image 9.0 (build 2,302) to back up developers workstations. Because the backups can be lengthy, I've opted to run them after business hours (7PM). We don't want the workstations running overnight, so I instructed Acronis to execute psshutdown (by www.sysinternals.com) to shut the system down once the back up completes. The back ups run, but it can't execute: psshutdown -k. Does anyone know why Acronis won't execute this? The developers say they get an error message like "cannot create named pipe". Alternatively, is there a way to instruct Acronis to execute a back up at a specified time & then shut the system down? I'm using the built in Acronis Scheduler, not the Windows one.
