is it possible to send a message to users after a reboot / startup before login?
Posted on 2006-06-12
hi , i wanted to send users a message when the server is rebooted and give them time to save there work, which i've managed by doing just a batch file (net send * "server reboot in 5 mins, please save your work"
call sleep.exe 300
net stop msexchangesa /y
and being lazy i just opt for clicking the batch file rather than trying to tie it onto the shutdown commands
but what i wanted to do was get a message which would appear when the server restarted, i've already got it to do it with a logon script, but is there a way i can get a net send message (or any better way of sending a message if there is one) to be sent when the server starts without having to log onto the server?
