I need to configure scheduled tasks service to auto and then start the service on 50 + servers

I need to configure scheduled tasks service to auto and then start the service on 50 + servers.  I am using psservice and a for loop to cycle throught the servers.  Attached is what I have so far.  Thanks.

You need to add following line inside IF condition block.
ECHO PROCESSING: %%c >>%OutputFile%
You can also add Date and Time like:
ECHO Date: %DATE%  Time: %TIME% >>%OutputFile%

Like:
:: BATCH SCRIPT START 
@ECHO OFF
SETLOCAL EnableDelayedExpansion
SET InputFile=srvlst.txt
SET OutputFile=DisableStatus.txt
 
IF NOT EXIST "%InputFile%" ECHO "%InputFile%" file does not exist. &GOTO :EndScript
FOR %%R IN ("%InputFile%") DO IF %%~zR EQU 0 ECHO "%InputFile%" file is empty. &GOTO :EndScript
IF EXIST "%OutputFile%" DEL /F /Q "%OutputFile%"
 
FOR /F %%c IN ('TYPE "%InputFile%"') DO (
        ECHO Processing: %%c
        PING -n 1 -w 1000 %%c|Find /I "TTL" >NUL
        IF NOT ERRORLEVEL 1 (
                ECHO PROCESSING: %%c>>%OutputFile%
		SC \\%%c config "SentryII" start= auto >>%OutputFile%
                SC \\%%c START "SentryII" >>%OutputFile%
        )ELSE (ECHO Unable to connect %%c: system may be offline.))
 
ECHO. &ECHO Script complete. Check "%OutputFile%" file.
:EndScript
ENDLOCAL
EXIT /B 0
:: BATCH SCRIPT END

I am also trying to get a log of each server and weather there was an error or it completed successfully for each server.  This way I can keep track of which servers I will nedd to go back and look at.

I believe I have the first script all jacked up.  I have tested this from 1 server resetting services on the other and it works but the function to set to the service to auto or disabled does not seem to be working for me.  Here is what I have for the psservice commnads:

psservice.exe \\mmtg1fnlp013 setconfig Scheduler start-auto  >>"%MyLogFile%"
psservice.exe \\mmtg1fnlp013 start schedule             >>"%MyLogFile%"

The service gets started and stopped, now I  beliave that I just need to get the startup type to set correctly and add a for loop.  Thanks for your assistance as I am still learning the poes with mass scripting.  Guess you need to make sure the comand will work on 1 first before you go creating for loops and all that... I got the cart ahead of the horse.

By the way my log file for this shows the following:

Usage: psservice.exe [\\Computer [-u Username [-p Password]]] setconfig <svc> <start-type>
Sets the start type of the specified service where start-type
is one of auto, demand and disabled.

I believe I have the syntax set correctly.

Check following batch script if this helps!

:: BATCH SCRIPT START 
@ECHO OFF
SETLOCAL EnableDelayedExpansion
SET InputFile=srvlst.txt
SET OutputFile=DisableStatus.txt
 
IF NOT EXIST "%InputFile%" ECHO "%InputFile%" file does not exist. &GOTO :EndScript
FOR %%R IN ("%InputFile%") DO IF %%~zR EQU 0 ECHO "%InputFile%" file is empty. &GOTO :EndScript
IF EXIST "%OutputFile%" DEL /F /Q "%OutputFile%"
 
FOR /F %%c IN ('TYPE "%InputFile%"') DO (
        ECHO Processing: %%c
        PING -n 1 -w 1000 %%c|Find /I "TTL" >NUL
        IF NOT ERRORLEVEL 1 (
                SC \\%%c config "SentryII" start= auto >>%OutputFile%
				SC \\%%c START "SentryII" >>%OutputFile%
        )ELSE (ECHO Unable to connect %%c: system may be offline.))
 
ECHO. &ECHO Script complete. Check "%OutputFile%" file.
:EndScript
ENDLOCAL
EXIT /B 0
:: BATCH SCRIPT END

This is great and it works!!!  One last thing how would I also add the server name to the log so that I know which server if failed on if there was a failure?. Much Thanks.

SC \\%%c START "SentryII" >>%OutputFile%
