Winat utility on Windows Server 2003

Does anyone know if the Winat utility works with Windows Server 2003? I just finished building a new Network Infrastructure with Windows Server 2003, Active Directory; 31 Servers all together. We have six servers that run Oracle 9i, and this is where it's most important. The DBA's have automated scripts that need to run on a comaand scheduler, and for some reason the Winat utility does not work.

 I need to get these servers into production ASAP; we support the United States Army, and I cannot go into too many details due to confidentiality. But I will say that the U.S. Army heavily relies on our systems, and it's very important that I get this damn Winat utility to work ASAP.

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried using the Task Scheduler service?

if the scheduling is that important then I'd suggest using a proper scheduling tool. Many bigger co's use something such as Autosys

I would not recommend AT or Scheduled Tasks if you depend on them - unless you have a proper way of checking / error handling in the scripts.

If not I would recommend Automate IT which is by far cheaper then AutoSys.

I think there are also Freeware tools around.

However to answer your question (which wasn't yet): Yes WinAT and Scheduled Tasks do work in Windows 2003.
