Remotely stop Services on W2k servers from W2k3 server
Posted on 2005-03-17
I'm trying to get my Veritas Backup Exec jobs to complete with out errors. It keeps choking on some files used by DHCP and WINS, each running on a different server on my network. I want to create a .bat job that will stop the services, run the backup, then restart them. I tried using netsvc and sc. SC will allow me to get information on the services, but netsvc will not work from the W2k3 server. It says that "'netsvc' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file." Is there a similar command for W2k3? This would have been perfect....if it worked.
