Task Scheduler semi-working

11 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi Guys,

The attached script collects logs from various servers on my network, prints them into logs.txt, and emails them to me, daily. When I run the compiled script by clicking on the EXE it works beautifully.

However, when it's run through the scheduler, I get an email with a blank txt file. This happens when I run the scheduled task manually and when it runs automatically.

The SMTP part is from Jos, Thank you Jos.

FileDelete($log)
EndIf
RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & "psloglist.exe @servers.txt -d 1 -f we -r > " & $log, "", @SW_HIDE)

What credentials are you running it under when you run it through Task Scheduler?

Same credentials. Administrator..That was the first thing that came to mind :-(

You need the full path to the files you're accessing in the first part of the script. When you're not logged in, or the task scheduler is running the script, it can't find the files because you don't have a path pointing to them.

Also, move your #include lines to the top of the script, you have them stuck in there after the first part of the script. It's probably not going to be a problem with this script because of the way it's written, but believe me if you start writing bigger scripts and start putting them in the middle like that, it's going to cause all sorts of problems.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Sorry. email is being sent, but I'm getting a blank log.txt file.

Just noticed, the log.txt file isn't being created... But the email is being sent.

Thanks

I would move the files in question to a non-protected area of the hard drive and try it again. It's quite possible that it's a permissions issue when running it as a task, especially if it's being run on a server or Windows Vista/7.

Can you please expand on

Some place that doesn't require authentication to access, like a folder off of the C: root folder, but not in Program Files.

BrewManNH, it worked. I placed it in a folder off the root. It works now.

Thanks for the help.

      Hello
      I'm using the code below to send mails using our internal relay server. 
      We got a Helpdesk system named Remedy. Our users can send us a mails using outlook 2010, and we'll get a ticket.
      The problem is if I send a mail using the above script our ticket system can't display unicode characters, like ex: Æ Ø Å. It will display them as: questionmarks: "? ? ?" inside our ticket system. In the outlook inbox it looks fine showing unicode symbols, but in our ticket system the unicode characters will be replaced by questionmarks.
      The thing is, if they send a mail using outlook, it works fine, but using the script above it doesen't.
      I tried to save my script with encoding: UTF-8 with BOM, but it didn't fix it.
       
      All suggestions are very welcome

      1. Object Error Handler used only for the duration of the function of Use,

      4. Elimination of most global variables

      Hello AutoIt community!
      I have a script that sends and email with attachments when I run the script. This script works perfectly. When I call that script from another script, it sends the email but does not include the attachment. Any idea why this would be happening? Thanks in advance!
