Hello Experts Exchange
I have a batch file that I'm trying to run in Windows Server 2008 Task Scheduler, in Task Scheduler it report that the task run successfully, but the script should create a log file and no log file is created.

Here is the code I'm trying to run.
@echo off
setlocal

@REM *** START: Turns logging on ***
if "%~1" == "NOWLOGGING" goto NowLogging
    set SchedulesLogFile=%~n0.txt
    %0 "NOWLOGGING" > "%SchedulesLogFile%" 2>&1
    goto :EOF
:NowLogging
@REM *** END: Turns logging on ***


@rem Guts of batch file...
echo [%date% %time%] starting...
echo *** start of actual batch file...
...
echo *** end of actual batch file...
echo [%date% %time%] ending...

Open in new window


How do I resolve the problem?

Regards
