Running Sync_All_DNS as scheduled task on Windows 2008

· by Christoph Stoettner · Read in about 1 min · (115 words)

To automate the sync_all_dns.bat on my IBM Lotus Connections Servers, i made a scheduled task for the Tivoli Directory Integrator (TDI) script. This works fine on Windows 2003.

Today i discovered that my scheduled task on Windows 2008 wasn’t running since i switched the operating system to Microsoft Windows 2008.

After a search i found that i need to set a optional parameter, then it works:

2011 04 18 10 14 37

To start bat- or cmd-files, you have to insert the path to this script in “Start in (Optional)”. When i start the script without “Start in” the scheduler gives a “SUCCESS” Status, but nothing happens!

You can test with schtasks /run /tn "taskname" and have a look on [tdisolutionpath]/logs/ibmdi.log.
