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?

    Accepted Solution

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

    Assisted Solution

    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.
