Remote Process Submission

Hello all, I'm an old AS/400 hack whose just been launched into the MS world and need a helping hint. I am running a large network of 2003 servers for a retail app and need to run a specific process on all several times a day. Currently I use remote desktop to click and run this by hand, with nearly 40 servers it's getting old really quick. Is there any way to submit this from the main app server here? Any help very gratefully received. Thanks

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

Use a Windows scheduled task if the process is to be run at the same time each day. This will be under Control Panel, Scheduled Tasks. Another tool could be the PSEXEC tool from Microsoft (Sysinternals). It can be used to run remote processes – we even use it for remote software installation.
********************
I do this routinely with PSEXEC running in a scheduled task. Very clean

    Sounds like a perfect use of the agent job feature on the server. I have a bunch of jobs set to run every 15 minutes to do data refreshes.
