Ok, Let’s take an example, Suppose we want to update Group Policy on a single remote user’s computer using group policy update command, then following command will help to initiate gpupdate.exe, kindly change Target_Computer_Name with a remote computer name.
WMIC /node:Target_Computer_Name process call create "cmd.exe /c GPUpdate.exe
Suppose you want to run group policy update command on multiple users, then use this following command
FOR /F "Tokens=*" %L IN (RemoteComputers.TXT) DO WMIC /node:%L process call create "cmd.exe /c GPUpdate.exe"
Suppose if you want to stop any othere service on a remote computer then use following command, Kindly replace the Target_ Service with the service name which you want to stop.
WMIC /node:Target_Computer_Name process call create "Net Stop Target_Service"
