Hi Folks,

I am going to explain my issue and hope i can get an easy answer!

I have a two domain's with Two Dc on each ,  one is running Windows Server 2008 R2 and the other Windows Server 2008, both 64 bit . I have written a VBS to create backups of the data . The script creates a backup of the data onto the secondary DC, then creates a zip file named with the date and time on an external backup Hard drive. I also use the same script on the secondary Dc to create a zip file for daily offsite storage.

The scripts are doing the job perfectly , the logic and all other factors are great. Currently the primary Dc gives message to let the user know the files have been copied to the Secondary dc, and the user can then double click the script on the Secondary dc to begin zipping the files onto the offsite HDD.
My problem is that i actually want the script running on the primary DC to start the backup script on the secondary Dc automatically with out asking the user to do so. The zipping process has a command window to show its progress and on completion the servers are shutdown each day.

Any ideas and suggestion on this problem would be appreciated.
