Shutdown PC's on Network

02/04/2009 5450 views
I am trying to work on shutting down all the Networked PC say at 10pm via SMS 2003, but the problem I would face is that if I set a expiry end date then it would not re-occur the next day right?

Therefore my objective is to shutdown PC's every night say at 10pm and it stops advertising at 6am - so when a user come sin the morning it is still not advertising and their PC will not shut down.

Can anyone help or advise how I can get round this please?

Greatly Appreciated.

If this were me, I'd set up an admin workstation somewhere and simply have a script walk the domain and run PSExec against the workstations, executing SHUTDOWN.EXE. IIRC, there's an excellent example on http://cwashington.netreach.net

Many Thanks,

It's all working on SMS 2003 but the problem i'm facing that if I set the advertisement to expire then it would not re-occur everyday. Objective is the task shut down PC's everyday at 10pm and the advertsiemnt should stop say at 5am but the task should still occurs everyday.

Any further feedback would be greatly appreciated.
