Script to restart 2008 R2 Terminal Server

I have two 2008 R2 Terminal Servers that i would like to send out a message that says rebooting in 5 minutes and then logs off the users that are logged in or disconnected and then reboot the server. I know 2003 had a command to reboot a terminal server. Does 2008 have something similar or do I just use shutdown command? What are other people using to reboot there 2008 Terminal Servers? Thanks

first thing u may want to do is to kill any active sessions on the server

query session >session.txt
for /f "skip=1 tokens=3," %%i in (session.txt) DO logoff %%i
del session.txt

then add the to batch file the restart

shutdown -r -f -t 10

Remarks (not part of the script)
Rem -r for restart
Rem -f for force
Rem -t time in seconds


see if that works

I strongly suggest you browse CTRL-ALT-DEL guys, who have made a lot of excellent utilities for Terminal Server. What you need is probably TSReboot utility, here: http://www.ctrl-alt-del.com.au/CAD_TSUtils.htm
