This network administrator's tool can be used to update multiple (Windows or Netware) servers.

Copy, Update, Upgrade (all with Sync option) or Delete files.

On Windows systems, Execute remote commands (e.g. install updates).

Uses SysInternals PSExec to execute files remotely:

Uses SysInternals PSService to stop/start remote services:

http://www.sysinternals.com/utilities/psservice.html

JRB Utilities serv_cmd (v1.84) to issue Netware console commands from a workstation.

A set of 80 utilities (including serv_cmd v1.84) can still be found at http://www.jrbsoftware.com/04downloads/index.htm

The attached .zip contains: RUpdater.au3; RemoteUpdater.rtf; 3 example .INI files (documented):

To install latest Microsoft Malicious Code Removal Tool on remote servers.

To update remote Netware servers' Veritas BackupExec installation.

To demo the use of file copy/update/upgrade/delete operations.

Update: v2.2 Corrected file copy bug; added an initial 'select INI file to use'.

Cheers,

Pete.

This is very cool, I have been writing something similar for windows that is styming me on logging to a file - anyway, this looks like it would be more useful except it seems to freeze up on connecting. My guess is on the remote side it's asking for domain credentials to access the file.

Would it be difficult to just have it copy the file over from the machine I'm running the program on?
