Hello,

Situation:
I have a batch file I'm running on a lot of computers at times when no users are logged on to the machines.  The computers are on a Server2003 domain.  The batch file collects information from the machine that it's ran on and redirects or pipes the information to a Log file saved on the local C: drive.  I need the Log file to be more accessible so I don't have to go to each individual machine.

Here is my script:

*********below*************

REM Create a new log file
set logname=C:\log %date:/=-% %time::=-%.txt
echo Log of Results > "%logname%"
echo ------------------------- >> "%logname%"
echo.  >> "%logname%"

*********above*************

The problem I am working to resolve:
I can't figure out how to set the Logname to be redirected to my personal PC, that I work from, instead of being saved on the local HDD of every machine its ran on.

Thanks for comments and ideas,
zbox
