Using a VB Script to execute command line functions
Posted on 2013-11-06
Hello all. Please note: I am a script neophyte. I have been working with a software vendor that provides tools to execute commands against their system. The commands are entered from a cmd window on a 2008r2 server. The problem is that we have a large quantity of updates that would require a hand typed entry for each one. I would like to create a script to run that would reference a csv file containing each of the line variables.
The commands are executed in this fashion from the command line:
C:\servercommand setfunction variable1 variable2 note1,note2
(each part is seperated by a space with the exception of the notes.. The notes can be multiple items seperated by a comma and exist as the last item in a string)
I would envision a file that is referenced that would look like this
variable1 variable2 note1,note2
variable3 variable4 note3,note4
Is there anyone that could provide a novice like me with a jump-start to have a script that would start the process with the 'servercommand setfunction' and then call the individual lines to be included as part of the script?
Please let me know if you need clarification.
Thank you in advance.
