Powershell script to schedule copy files between two different domain servers ?


I'm wondering if it is possible to create powershell script to copy file between two fileserver in different domain on scheduled basis ?

\\Fileserver1.domain1.com\Folder1 into \\Fileserver1.domain2.com\Folder1

every 6 AM in the morning.

Thanks man, but it doesn't talk about the cross domain functionality ?
Can you create sharepoints to each domain resource on each DC/server and have the script copy to that?

unfortunately no we are not suggested to implement WSS on the other site :-|
Darn. It was a good idea anyway.

yes it is, If I can have WSS then I wouldn't be posting this question of course :-)
how about robocopy?

Fix the batch file and set as a scheduled task on Fileserver1.domain2.com

REM copyfolder1.cmd

REM the net use command is needed only if there is no trust.
REM easiest(?) to run from Fileserver1.domain2.com

REM establishes credentials to source server
net use \\Fileserver1.domain1.com\ipc$ /user:domain1.com\username password

REM you should check out if you need different robocopy switches
robocopy \\Fileserver1.domain1.com\Folder1 \\Fileserver1.domain2.com\Folder1 /mir /r: /w:1

I would agree to using robocopy instead of PowerShell for this simple task. It is different if you want to do more complex tasks, as copying to multiple locations in one go, for example.
