Scheduling remotet tasks
Posted on 2006-07-10
I support servers across the country and have a few processes that allow me
to execute tasks on all the servers using scheduled tasks. A script runs
through a server OU and creates a CMD file that looks like this.... (
at \\server1 4:00 d:\utils\process.cmd
at \\server2 4:00 d:\utils\process.cmd
at \\server3 4:00 d:\utils\process.cmd
at \\server4 4:00 d:\utils\process.cmd
Executing this CMD file then schedules process.cmd to run on all servers at 4:00 AM.
There is one process in particular that I would like to have run at the same
time on all servers, but when the tasks are scheduled using the AT command
as seen above, the task runs on local time. Since my servers span the
country, several time zones are crossed.
Is there a way using AT or SCHTASKS that tasks can be scheduled to run at the same time (GMT) even though they cross time zones?
A simple "NO" answer gets you 50 points.
A "YES" and help to solve this will earn between 125 and 250 depending on the difficulty.
