We have three servers in or network (1-2008, 2-2003). The UPS software that performs the automated shutdown in case of a power failure didn't work quick enough yesterday when we had a power outage. I was not there to manually shut them down and two went down hard before the UPS shutdown completed.
I have a restart script that use for remote maintenance and just modified it for shutdown instead of restart. I've put it on the server 2008 desktop for the office mgr to use incase of an emergency. Now I'd like to create a script she can execute to manually shutdown the two other servers.
Here is a quick script that runs on the 2008 server.
net stop "AeLookupSvc" /y
net stop "AppHostSvc" /y
net stop "QuickBooksDB20" /y
net stop "QBCFMonitorService" /y
net stop "Spooler" /y
shutdown /s /t /30 /f /d /p:4:1
I have a shutdown file very simular to this on the two 2003 servers in the domain. How do I automate the remote shutdown of both of them from the 2008 server properly?
