Windows Task Scheduler
Brokers now have the option to run Task
Scheduler on their file server while their server is 'logged off' by
creating a .cmd file. It will essentially trigger the task at a set
time, launch Power Broker Task Scheduler, run all the items and then
sign out. It is important for the broker to know that if they are
running more than one item, to not run it at the same time.
See instructions below for creating .cmd file:
and copy the below contents to the new Notepad screen. The user will
have to change the Drive letter, server name and the shared folder
on your server to match your environment.
Example for a user
trying to run Client Desk:
net use Q: \\Zyserv9\dataq /persistent:no
On the root of the C drive, make a folder called 'TaskScheduler' and place the clientdesktask.cmd
file in the Task Scheduler folder.
If you are leaving your server turned on, then please take out the
first line of the command file (example: net use Q:
Then, search for Task Scheduler from your
Start button on the desktop. Click on Create Task on the right side
Create a new trigger:
Create a new action:
Once you see your new task, then click OK.
You will then be able to see your task in
the Task Scheduler Library. Try testing it by right clicking on the
task and choosing 'Run'.
For any other executible you are wanting
to run, the user will have to create seperate tasks through the task
scheduler running at seperate times. A list of examples are as
see link below for setting up power broker
task inside of power broker.
