    Has anyone managed to locate the scheduled shutdown feature in the latest WDM 4.7 version. Looking to schedule a remote shutdown of our entire Windows CE estate.

    The wyse website states:

    “Scheduled or Auto Wake-up / Shutdown / Reboot”

    Is this true or am I reading this wrong?

    I think this is one the confusing marketing statements.
    There is currently no option to directly schedule these commands. The only option you have is to create small and simple scripts. These scripts can be scheduled then.
    Some examples:

    WOL script

    [Version]
    Number=WoL script
    Description=send WoL to the unit
    OS=XP
    Category=Technicalhelp

    [Script]
    wl

    Reboot script

    [Version]
    Number=Reboot script
    Description=send reboot to the unit
    OS=XP
    Category=Technicalhelp

    [Script]
    rb

    Shutdown script

    [Version]
    Number=Shutdown script
    Description=sends a shutdown to the unit
    OS=XP
    Category=Technicalhelp

    [Script]
    sd

    The hassle with all this is, that WDM always sends a WoL to a unit before executing any script. Keep this in mind.

    Thanks for this I have attempted to create this scriptby pasted the relevant one into a text file and changing the extension to .rsp

    When I attempted to register this package I was presented with an error, I don’t have much experience of creating rapport scripts, do I need to create any other file structures for this to worK?

    2 things to do:
    – create the script and save with the same name as stated under “Number=”
    – create a folder at the same level of the rsp file and name it the same name as the script

    eg
    c:tempreboot.rsp
    c:tempreboot

    This folder has always to be present even if empty.

    Cheers

    Brilliant, finally got round to implementing this script and it works a dream.

    I did get one error when registering the script

    “Package registration failed due to the following reason:
    File not Found”

    This did not effect the package being registered and appears to be working perfectly. As always thanks

    Number=CEshutdown

    Category=CE Admin
    [Script]

    sd

    I have also created the following file strcuture before registering package in wdm 4.5.3, as I said previoulsy this script does work even with the error.

    C:WDM PackagesCEshutdown
    C:WDM PackagesCEshutdownCEshutdown.rsp

    The XP script I am trying registers without any error message but does not initiate a shutdown of the device. I can see it in the scheduler as pending but nothing happens: Script for this one is below:

    [Version]
    Number=XPEshutdown
    Description=Shutdowns XPE Wyse Terminals
    OS=XP
    Category=XPE Admin
    [Script]

    sd

    I have just tested this script

    [Version]
    Number=Shutdown script
    Description=sends a shutdown to the unit
    OS=XP
    Category=Technicalhelp

    [Script]
    sd

    with my V90L and WDM 4.7. Registered perfectly and was executed without an issue. V90L was shutdown.
