Best way to create a scheduled task for 2003 domain workstations

Hey Folks,

What do you guys think will be the most efficient way to implement a scheduled task to reboot all workstation machines within a 2k3 domain? I would love to use GPP extensions, but I do not have one vista/7 or Windows Server 2008 server to manage this. What I would like to do is have a startup script that will check if a scheduled task exist and configured correctly on a workstation machine, and if not, configure or re-configure it to standards

What's a good sample script to get this job done? Is there a better solution out there without using a 3rd party app?

no it doesn't a gpo can be set on 2003 as well...
 but anyway, if you have all domain machines, you can setup a script to run on server vwhich will remote reboot all machines=

shudtown /m \\your machinesname/ip -r -t 00

repeat this line for all machines

I know a gpo can be set on 2K3. What I was trying to say is that you can not manage Group Policy Preferences without having a 2K8, Vista, or 7 machine. So that also means I can not do what your link wants me to do.

If I'm wrong, show me how this can be done.

you don't need the GPP, you need to install group policy management (gpmc) on the server 2003 if not yet installed.

Then follow the steps in the link...

Also consider the other option i said, remote shutdown of workstations from the server
