Scheduled Tasks
I have written some batch files. I want to deploy these as scheduled scripts on a file server. I would like to add a list of workstations on the file server and include an ID number for the workstation. The additional information in each batch file should iterate through the list and pick the respective ID numbers for the date of the task. Does anyone know how to do this, or could you give me some pointers?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I think that the DOS command FOR will do what you are looking for.

Open a command prompt and type HELP FOR to get the full syntax.

    I forgot to add the following: The workstations that will have the server scheduled tasks on them are all XP Professional. The server is Windows Server 2003.

    Is anyone familiar with PowerShell. Will PowerShell handle this type of functionality? -Schmidtw
