Hi,

I need a batch script that will check to see if a remote folder exists based on a list of machines in a text file.  I will be running this script from my desktop and need to verify the existence of a folder on each of our servers.

For example, I'd like to verify that c:\windows\system32\test folder exists from a list of machines in machines.txt

Thanks!

I would also like it to output to another text file detailing the results of whether or not the folder exists on that specific machine.

How about something like this.  Save as a BAT file and run from same folder as machines.txt.

@echo off
if exist "exists.txt" del "exists.txt"
for /F %%A in (machines.txt) do (
  if exist "\\%%A\C$\windows\system\test\" (
    echo %%A : FOUND >>exists.txt
  ) else (
    echo %%A : MISSING >>exists.txt
  )
)
