    Schedule a Windows 2003 reboot

    Hi,

    What is the easiest way to automatically reboot a windows 2003 server on a
    certain day of the month? I tried to schedule shutdown.exe using the windows
    scheduler but it did not work.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    You can use a batch file, and schedule the batch file...

    E.g.:

    shutdown -r -t 1

    Should have worked. Scheduled Tasks|Advanced|View Log may provide some
    details. If the job connects to another machine you may need to add the
    user/ group 'logon as batch job' rights (server side). Control Panel|Admin
    Tools|Local Security Policy\Local Policies\User Rights Assignments
    "Log on as a batch job"

    If the task completes but the job does not then there is a problem in the
    job itself. Remember that if it involves network resources to make sure the
    user account has permissions to the resources and also use UNC paths as
    mapped drives won't natively exist when no one is logged on.
