Recently I got into a situation where I had to restart one of the servers from my local machine (to which I had connected through VPN). To do to that:
1. Open a command prompt and type the below command:
shutdown /[r|s] /m \\ComputerName /c "Comment" /d [u|p] <xx>:<yy> and then press ENTER.
For E.g., shutdown /r /m \\<server name> /c "Put in your Comments/Reason for restart" /d 10:11
