Open the Scheduled Task 
START ->All Programs ->Accessorier -> System Tools -> Scheduled Tasks

2Create a new task

Double Click on the "Add a New Scheduled Task"

3Follow the Scheduled Task Wizard

Click "Next"

4Select the program to run

Click on Browse to select the proper program and location to run. Navigate to "C:\WINDOWS\System32\shutdown.exe"

5Select the Frequency

This is where you set how often you want to "task" to exicute. So if you wanted your server to reboot weekly you select "weekly"

6Select the time and day you want the task to start.

This can be once a week at 3 AM or every Wednesady and Friday nights.

7Enter the username and password for a user

This is the user that the scheduled task will run as. I suggest using an account that has domain admin privileges.

8You have successfuly scheduled the following task

At this point you would be done, if you wanted the server to shutdown at the scheduled time. We are going to select the Open Advanced options when I click finished. Then click Finish

9Advanced Options

In the Run option you will see the location of the shutdown program. we are going to add some options.

-r This wil have ther server shutdown and then restart 
-f This will force the server to force any running application to close 
-t 01 This is a time-out before shutdown.

so the full run command is: 
C:\WINDOWS\system32\shutdown.exe -r -f -t 01

Select Apply




I would be careful about any jobs etc that might be running around the time I set for reboot.  
Use /f /r with the shutdown command for force and reboot

schtasks /Create /TN Shutdown /SC WEEKLY /MO /D SUN /ST 03:00 /TR "shutdown -r -f"

That would schedule it


A simple cmd you could call would be
Shutdown /r /f

You could then call that cmd file
