I have two different .cmd files that reside on a Windows Server 2003 box that I need a script that will kick them off from a linux server.  A backup that runs on the linux server needs to kick off these "pre" and "post" scripts on the remote Windows server.  So I need a pair of "pre" and "post" scripts to kick off their associated "pre" and "post" scripts on the remote Windows server.

Anyone done this before?

You can basically install an ssh server on windows and then use ssh from linux to windows to run commands on windows remotely.

Please find link below for ssh for windows:

you could also install cygwin on windows with ssh server

You might also install a basic REXEC server on Windows. One REXEC server is available in the Microsoft Software Development Kit (SDK). Others are available for download from various sources. Linux should easily send requests via rexec() to a Windows REXEC server. The choice of what you might install could depend on your environment and security needs.
