How can I run this batchscript that will look in a file for server names rather than using the for loop?




for %%J in ( Server1 Server2 ) do CALL :copynext %%J
goto :Finished


:copynext
:: %1 comes from the call line, not the command line
set srvnme=%1

ECHO.
ECHO Running Dumpsec: %srvnme%
@echo off
ping -n 10  \\127.0.0.1 >NUL

@echo on
dumpsec /rpt=rights /saveas=csv /outfile=%srvnme%.txt /computer=%srvnme%

@echo off



:exit
goto :EOF


:Finished

You can use a FOR /F loop.

If all of your server names are in the file SERVERNAMES.TXT you can do:
for %%J in (SERVERNAMES.TXT) do CALL :copynext %%J

You mean:

for /f "Tokens=1" %%a in (filename.ext) Do call :copynext %%a

OF course, I'd probably just condense the whole script:

@echo off
for /f "tokens=1" %%a in (serverlist.txt) do (
    Echo.
    Echo Running Dumpsec: %%a
    Ping -n 10 \\127.0.0.1 >NUL
    @echo On
    dumpsec /rpt=rights /saveas=csv /outfile=%%a.txt /computer=%%a
    @echo off
)
