Delprof question...

i need to tidy up pcs on the network running winnt 4.0, one of the tasks is to tidy up old user profiles taking up valuable h/d space.

Delprof is the ideal tool however when to run it the client needs admin privaledges therefore running it in a login script wont work.

I want to run this from an NT server which is logged in as domain admins and run a script from there, however i can only do one pc at a time....

delprof /i /c:\\computername

Is there a way to pipe a text file containing all the pc names on the network.. ie something like

delprof /i /c:|computernames.txt

NB:this program runs in dos mode.

Why not ?

Something like this would work :

@echo off
for /f "Skip=3 Tokens=*" %%i in ('net view') do call :delprof %%i
goto :end
:delprof
set name=%1
rem 'delprof /i \\%name%'
:end

Thanks... i didnt realise this was a dos command.. it works really well,and could be handy for a lot of other things.

Just one thing though when delprof program runs its prompts for input on whether you want it to delete all inactive files.. the prompts are y/n.

Any ideas how to put this in as well?

Cheers

delprof directs its screen output to the error channel, I'm afraid. So it is not pipable under NT's native DOS.

P.S.: It can happen you make run Norton DOS e.g. on your NT; Norton DOS has got the capability to redirect error channel.
