    Look, I know this sounds simple and I hate to ask a stupid question.

    But I just need to know if this can be done:

    For a given list of recognized machines in WDM (not on the same subnet; these are fully accessible via IPSEC tunnels and appear within the 10 subnet to our LAN), how would I do it?

    In other words, for a given selection of machines, I want to automate:

    Disabling the write filter
    Logging as Administrator (if necessary)
    Put two files in C:documents and settingsall usersdesktop
    Re-enable the write filter

    Automatically, overnight. So that in the morning, all my users have these files on their desktop. VNC-ing into each one for such a simple task is a nightmare and I never want to have to do it again… I am using the evaluation copy of WDM and wish to make the most of it.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Yep, dead easy!

    Take a look at the sample Rapport Scripts in the WDM – XPe downloads section if this site. There are two commands you can use -SF (send file) or XC (like XCOPY).

    This is really easy to do and you can edit one of the samle scripts with a SF or XC command. It looks a bit strange but easy to do, check this script:

    http://www.freewysemonkeys.com/site/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=viewdownloaddetails&lid=87&ttitle=Generic_USB_Audio.zip

    After you have made your package register it in the console and schedule it to run,

    Cheers,
    -TT

    Will this schedule it to reboot into EWF mode first, then grab the file, and then reboot in normal mode? Will look at the scripts when I get to work.

    Hi,

    You need probably a script with the following commands:

    QU (query user for update)
    LU (Lockout user)

    SF (Send File)

    EL (End Lockout)
    RB (Reboot)

    This will ask the user to update, then lockout the screen (the user can’t do anything), send the file, end the lockout and gives a reboot afterwards.

    For a complete list and explination of all commands take a look at the Script_Language_Help_File.pdf file. You can find it at http://www.wyse.com (support, knowledge base, search for WDM Scripting Language Guide)

    Hi airzonk,

    WDM always takes care of the status of the EWF. If it is enabled then it will disable it first, copy the files and enable it afterwards.

    I need to know how to do the following:

    Delete multiple files – what is the wildcard syntax?
    Is it:

    DF C:PATH*
    DF C:PATH*.*
    DF C:PATH*.TXT

    Which of these are legal?

    With XC or SF, how do I specify that overwrites are okay; including directory overwrites?

    How do I create a directory?

    Is there a case structure built into the language?

    Without looking for the right WDM syntax, what about doing everything from a batch file.

    XC “*” “c:”
    EX “c:mybatch.bat”
    DL “c:mybatch.bat”

    And then simply put all delete, merge, move, copy, whatever commands in there.

    Just a thought
