Batch File Proccessing

Posted on 2009-07-14

I have a master batch file that calls a sub batch file to to check OS version.  EX:
@Echo off
Echo Checking for Updates
Set SourceDrive=f:\backup
net use u: /delete
del \\JAXBACK02\f$\backup_logs\%ComputerName%.txt
del \\JAXBACK02\f$\backup_logs\%ComputerName%_rsync.log
net use u: \\jaxback02\u$\%computername%
Call \\jaxback02\f$\backup\os.bat

The sub batch file reads:


ver | find "Version 5.2" > nul
if %ERRORLEVEL% == 1 goto Win2k

:Win2k
Call "\\jaxback02\f$\backup\rsyncDc.bat"
goto theexit

Once the OS versions is determined to be Win2k then a nother script runs This all works well except after the sub batch file runs, the maaster batch file continues to process. I want all processing to stop once the sub is called.

You could just use the EXIT command?
For instance check the errorlevel the os.bat sub batch returns and exit or not based on that?

"if %ERRORLEVEL% == nn EXIT"

So os.bat should not return to the calling (master) bat?
That's rather simply to achieve: delete the "call" in front of the call to os.bat; without the "call", cmd.exe will not return to the calling batch:

@Echo off
Echo Checking for Updates
Set SourceDrive=f:\backup
net use u: /delete
del \\JAXBACK02\f$\backup_logs\%ComputerName%.txt
del \\JAXBACK02\f$\backup_logs\%ComputerName%_rsync.log
net use u: \\jaxback02\u$\%computername%
\\jaxback02\f$\backup\os.bat
echo This line will never be displayed if the batch file above exists.
