I would like to vbscript the task of having to launch dsadmc, then login to Tivoli, then execute the      'update node 'machinename' 'password' con="lastname,firstname,laptop"'
Is their a command line I could use at the windows system prompt that uses dsadmc and performs the above task? I could then incorporate this in a script.
thanks

Hi,
yes, this is no problem.
Use
dsmadmc -id=[your_admin] -pass=[your_admin_pw] update node machinename password con="lastname,firstname,laptop"
Use -outfile=[filename] additionally to redirect ouput to a file
Find a complete list of dsmadmc command line options here -
