Execute a *.bat file within Windows scheduled task manager (uploads a file to an FTP server) when the user is logged off the system. The batch file is already created, just need to execute/invoke the job.
Implement the job within a local infrastructure (RDP access to system will be provided).
All jobs need to be executed from the local machines (running Windows 2000/XP).
The local machines run various flavors of Windows 2000/XP. There are couple of Windows 2003 Server used for RDP.
1) Already tried to create a job using windows task manager (under a user account) to execute a *.bat files at a scheduled time. However, when the user is logged off the computer the job fails to execute. Does not indicate that the job failed in the scheduled task, only lists when it last ran.
2) Tried to use the AT command ([url removed, login to view]) to setup the job as a system user, but the job did not work
3) Tried to use a cron job ([url removed, login to view]) to execute the job under windows, rather than scheduled task, but did not work.
