What is cwbrxd.exe?

The genuine cwbrxd.exe file is a software component of iSeries Access for Windows Remote Command by IBM.
A Windows PC using IBM iSeries Access to communicate with IBM i OS™ products across a network uses "cwbrxd.exe" to run commands sent to it remotely. These commands may come from the IBM midrange server or from a different Windows system on the network so that the PC acts as a server itself. The program creates unique threads to execute these remote commands and may be executing many at once, although it may re-use a command's thread for a new command after it finishes. Due to the critical role of this process in the enterprise network's communications and execution, "cwbrxd.exe" should only be uninstalled by a network administrator. IBM, formed as a conglomerate by founder Thomas Watson in 1911 and given its current name in 1924, is headquartered in Armonk, NY, USA, and has progressively repositioned itself in recent years towards enterprise and cloud computing solutions.
