Hi folks,

We're running a Win2k terminal server farm in a domain. One user, let's call it EXTERNAL_SUPPORT, has access to a desktop on only ONE terminal server. The desktop access on the other servers is denied, so this user has a very restricted access (file permissions, group policys, etc.).

Now I'm looking for a way, that this user can kick on/execute a batch process on the other terminal servers. Is there a way to share the scheduled tasks folder? I also tried rexec, but it never worked :(

Thanks in advance

Hi,

You can not share the scheduled tasks folder. What you can do is place the scheduled task elsewhere and share that folder.

I'm not sure if running the task would run it on the remote computer as you are accessing through a share though, I think it might try to execute on the users computer.

Hope this helps,

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for your quick response. The job would just synchronize a directory on an other server with a local directory. I realized that there's probably no other way than sharing the local directory and to run the sync from the EXTERNAL_SUPPORT desktop. The reason for this was because we need a logfile that documents what files were updated...

I'll keep your posted links in my favourites, I think they can be useful if other problems sometimes arises...
