Scripting Question

query re batch/script or combination which passes status/failure correctly back to SMS 2003

08/25/2008 2383 views
I'm wondering how to get any script/batch to correctly pass failed status back to SMS 2003 ??

ie any script/batch or combination or script/batch always runs & thus is alway successfull if called/run from a package in SMS 2003 & thus to SMS 2003 is always a success

How can I get SMS 2003 to recognise a script/batch as failed if any component of the batch/script fails ??

I don't know how SMS tests for success or failure but can I suggest setting the DOS ERRLEVEL if using batch files or if using VBS, exit with a suitable value, using "WScript.Quit(some_value)". For example, if SMS tests for a non-zero return code to indicate failure, then use "WScript.Quit(1)" for that and "WScript.Quit(0)" for success.
