Kixtart version 4.21.0.0
The function syntax is well documented and I have decided on this:

$RC = SHUTDOWN(" ", PC will restart in 60 seconds...", 60, 0, 1)

I'm not sure how to execute this $RC variable. After this first line of code would I then
do something like  run $RC?

Also, I want to restart all PCs on the network (265, Win2K and WinXP) at a specific time.
Is this the best approach for that goal? The syntax above will restart the local PC so I might
have to input all the computer names through a variable...

Hi,

Please enter the following code into a batch and execute it:

$comps=COMNetView()
for each $comp in $comps
    if $comp<>@WKSTA
        $rc=fnWMIShutdown($comp,4)
    endif
next
$rc=fnWMIShutdown(@WKSTA,4)
