How to shutdown lots of servers.

You have a long list of servers to shutdown/reboot.  There is no budget and you are not exactly hot on installing free ware tools.

The built in command ‘shutdown’ is capable of performing a remote shutdown of computers.  Used with the /i or -i switch , you will get a nice window to choose your options and specify a text file of servers you want to work on.

Great for pulling down all the web servers, followed by the database servers and so on.
