I have a novel server running win2k. I need to reset it every night. I've automated the shutdown process wth a batch file launched by task manager. However, I need to get the PC to log back onto the novel network after reboot. Does anyone have a utility or some code....anything?

What you want to download from microsoft is TweakUI

This will allow you to enable automatic loggins and tweak alot of other things.

For security reasons I would also suggest that in the Windows Start-up you create a short cut to the Workstation Lock command so that when the server loggin's in automatically it instantly locks the console:

Shortcut for Locking the Console
Published: June 30, 1999

You can lock the console without having to use CTRL+ALT+DEL or a screensaver.

To do so, create a shortcut to rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation. Then, launch the shortcut to lock the console.

This can be used on both Windows 2000 Server and Professional.

Nah, there is a registry entry that you can add assuming you're using the Novell client.  Check this out...

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
