I am trying to save backups of AD / DHCP / DNS with a time stamp so the shared directory on a second server will store multiple backups with the timestamp in the file name for searching ease

will i be able to use %d at the end of the file name and have it print a timestamp in its place?
ie Save  \\backupserver\networkbackup\AD%d.bak
