Updating Files

I have 02 Windows 2000 servers. One server hosts a web site and the other one is for development and testing. When I upadte source codes (ASP pages, HTML pages, etc.) in my Development Server, I want changes to get replicated to active web server at regular intervals. How do I perform this:

1. FAT system
2. NTFS system

(Assume both servers have same folders structures)

1) You can use xcopy and a scheduled batch file to do this for you.

2) You can buy a folder synch package to do this.

3) Look for free ware.

Suresync from a company called www.softwarepursuits.com
Works good. has scheduling and synching of directories of your choice.
Very flexible. A demo should be available.

I hope this helps.

xcopy is part of win2k.

Also I would look at the Win2k Resource kit for something called robocopy. It may also be on the MS web site as part of the downloadable tools there.

http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/techinfo/reskit/rktour/server/S_tools.asp

Search for copy, Mcopy, robocopy and others.
If not use the built in xcopy and the task scheduler.

I hope this helps !

I really think you should look at the alternatives for this. Here is yet another free software program that records keystrokes, mouse movements,clicks, it is so highly configuration it can creat a script that will automate the install of the OS, then the configuration of the OS, then the tweaking of the OS, then the installation of software programs, this tool is limitless BECAUSE you can perform everyday OS functions with it(such as copy/paste) automatically, and if you are worried about sombody tampering with the scripts it reproduces then it will auto compile everything into an exe for you OR you can use the ActiveX version of it...phew, that sounds like a sales pitch doesn't it? Or you can write a bacth file as stated above by SysExpert or use Xcopy or whatever...I suppose using a batch and task scheduler would do the trick...?


Cheers.
