I am trying to set a schedule for my script for Auto shutdown. I seem to have the script working to shut down the pc but now the scheduling is not working. Any ideas?

Offline or online script? What is the schedule? Did the script update (ie get the new schedule) on the PC?

GillySpy,

I set the schedule for shutdown a Windows System and the script for that has worked on 2 different pcs now and when I set the schedule for it, it doesn't work. It is an offline script I am using. The schedule I tired was for Run on the (I chose 9th) of (March) at (11:35) AM. I saved it and then waited for it to run and it never worked. I have attached a copy of what my page looks like

So it works when you choose "run now" correct? Did you verify that the script was updated on the client end? Go to the client side and looks in the kbots_cache folder. Open the XML and see if the schedule matches your update.

GillySpy,

I tried setting the schedule for a later time so it would have time to do an update and I asked my Supervisor if the computer shut down and he said it did. So I am assuming the schedule worked. Do the schedules need to be enabled for them to work? Or does that not matter?

What do you mean by "Do the schedules need to be enabled"? The script does need to be enabled.

BTW, you can force a specific client to update its scripts from the kbox. By copying this script (http://kbox/adminui/kbot.php?ID=3) and then setting a specific machine as the target and doing a run now it will update itself with the latest versions.
