Of course. But the bat file procedure is not automatic - you must know all the BDC names. Because you must know each BDC name to sync, you cannot simply force full sync at PDC and have it sync all BDCs. Instead, you must name each BDC for it to sync. To do this, use the NT4 resource kit. Run:

    NLTEST /SYNC /SERVER:servername

So, in your bat file, you enter:

    @echo off
    NLTEST /SYNC /SERVER:servername-1
    NLTEST /SYNC /SERVER:servername-2
    NLTEST /SYNC /SERVER:servername-3
    NLTEST /SYNC /SERVER:servername-4
