Im using a kix script that automatically zips and copies an access database from a server , across the WAN, and to another server for backups.
Depending on whether or not the above shelled out command completed succefully Im sending out an email (using a command line mailer)
It all works fantastically well :)
Now the problem.
I need the script to execute out of hours whilst the server is not logged in.
Servers are fully patched NT4 terminal servers (25 of them) the scripts and latest version of kix reside on the servers.
Like I said scripts are fine zip and copy is done using z7a command line zip utility and email is sent using clemail.
I then wrote a batch file to autoschedule the script to run
25 lines of :
AT \\servername 00:30 /every:M,T,W,Th,F w:\clemail\rota2ux.bat >>SCHED_LOG.TXT
rota2ux.bat is basically just a file calling kix32 rota2ux.kix
with rota2ux.kix being the kix script.
The "AT" scheduler adds all of the above quite happily and checking the server shows that the command is entered correctly into the scheduler.
However the script wont run when scheduled and I cant work out why. - Nothing in the script needs user intervention *confused*
Is it simply that "AT" is shite and I should be using something a bit more heavyweight (freeware recommendations would be nice)
or am I missing something ?
cheers for any and all help :)
