amongst all the daily activities I have, there 2 that really takes a lot of time because I have to do it manually :(

Case 1:
I have 1 executable file, "myApp.exe" that needs to be copied  (and overwrite existing one) to a second server:
from \\SERVER1\anyFolder\myApp.exe to \\SERVER2\anyFolder\myApp.exe
I am trying to do it automatically via CMD script using "runas" command but it is not working transparently because it ask me for password, eache time It connects to a different server (14th servers).

"run.bat" file runs:
runas /netonly /user:AMERICAS\myUserName RemoteServer01.bat

"RemoteServer01.bat" file runs:
Copy \\RemoteServer01.americas.local\e$\Tools\RMTool\RMTool.exe \\RemoteServer02.americas.local\e$\Tools\RMTool\RMTool.exe  /B /Z /Y

Open in new window

Case 2:
This one is done via RDP but I would like to do it via cmd if possible:
First step, connect to \\SERVER1\d$\ProductFolder
Second step, using Windows  "Right click / Compress to zipped folder" compress to zip "ProductFolder"
Third, rename resulting zip file adding (manually) current date as a prefix, example of resulting file: ""
Fourth step, Move the resulting zip file to \\SERVER1\e$\Backup folder

Thanks a lot!
