Hi Experts,

Is it possible to reboot IIS, and, then, as soon as it has rebooted, do something like register a dll, all in a single bat file that I can schedule to run unattended?

Thanks.

Hi

Try this bat file. Code by Pete Freitag from http://www.cfdev.com/code_samples/code.cfm/CodeID/71/ColdFusion/Bat_file_to_Restart_IIS_Web__FTP__SMTP_Services:

@echo off

REM - File: iisrestart.bat
REM - Description: Restart's IIS (Web, FTP, SMTP)
REM - Author: Pete Freitag CFDEV.COM

REM - ADD REM comments if you don't want to restart any
REM - of Services

echo Restarting IIS...
echo ======================================================

net stop "World Wide Web Publishing Service"
net start "World Wide Web Publishing Service"

net stop "FTP Publishing Service"
net start "FTP Publishing Service"

net stop "Simple Mail Transport Protocol (SMTP)"
net start "Simple Mail Transport Protocol (SMTP)"

echo ======================================================
echo IIS Restarted

echo on



Now, put your own code, like registering dlls, between echo IIS Restarted and echo on

Regards,
Zyloch

A single coommand is enough to restart the IIS.

IISRESET

Open a command prompt and type the above command(IISRESET)

regsvr32 "path\filename.DLL"

The above command can be used to register and unregister DLL's.
