I have a SQL query that I need to run on all machines in an OU in a W2k3 Server Windows XP environment.
The .bat is located in the netlogon share of the DC and is as follows:

cd Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tools\Binn                  
OSQL -S (local) -d BOData -E -i \\dc\netlogon\query1.sql
REM KEY-S [server] -d [database] -E [trusted connection] -I [input file]
OSQL -S (local) -d POSLocal -E -i \\dc\netlogon\query1.sql
REM KEY-S [server] -d [database] -E [trusted connection] -I [input file]


I want to run this without user input and users do not have admin privelges. Can anyone explain to me a way to achieve this?
