NTresoucekit ..Delprof.exe script.

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 /Q will do it quietly.

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.
