How do you time a 2000 server to reboot.

How do you get a 2000 server to reboot all on its own.

Once a week will do!

From svenkarlsen's link, you can browse to this page: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/scriptcenter/scrguide/sas_cpm_jleo.asp which has a script sample that will restart your computer.  You can copy that text into notepad, and save it as something.vbs .  Then using the AT command, you can schedule the task as often as you'd like.  What follows in brackets is an example of how to use the AT command: [AT 1:37 /every:F "c:\winnt\system32\cscript.exe"  "c:\reboot.vbs"]  This will set the script to run every Friday at 1:37AM.  Note that you can't execute the script directly, you have to use the "cscript.exe" program (the Windows Script Host) to run the script.

You could use the shutdown.exe from the Microsoft Windows 2000 Resource Kit:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;317371

You will need to buy the tool-set though, as the shutdown.exe is not among the free samples for download.


Or, if you are into scripting:

Or you can use psshutdown from www.sysinternals.com (pstools) and schedule the shutdown with task schedular.

Really depends on what you're trying to accomplish.  Do you need to re-boot the hardware, or just restart services.  You can write a simple batch file and schedule it with the AT scheduler... something with 2 lines - net stop server /y ; net start server /y
