Run command and Error handling

3 posts in this topic

OK, so maybe I am a complete DA, but I can't seem to figure out how to capture an error output for a run command that actually "runs", but spits out an error at the DOS console. I have written a script to facilitate scheduling reboots on remote servers by the server "owner" that is a local admin on the server. But if they try to schedule it on a server that they are not an admin on, the script currently doesn't error out in any way, and appears to work to the end user (scheduler). Can anyone help me out here and show me what I can do to capture the "Access is denied." error that would display on the DOS console, then use that to let the user know that the job did not get scheduled...

Thanks in advance...code is below...

Attach a handle to the output streams with the $STDOUT_CHILD and $STDERR_CHILD flags of the Run() function. Then read the output with StdOutRead() and StdErrRead. One simplifying option is to include the redirection parameter in the DOS command line so ERROUT is redirected to STDOUT, then you only have to monitor the one stream. The option is '2>&1' on the DOS command line.

:shocked:

P.S. SchTasks.exe might be another way to set up your scheduled tasks, and more widely available across the newer versions of Windows.
