scheduling CW2K backup on Win2K gives critical error from at

Hi everyone,

I just have tried to schedule a periodic database backup of CW2K (LMS 2.0) on Win2K (SP2). But all I got was a critical error message from Windows' at-command saying command line must not exceed 259 character.

Has anyone encountered that before? What is missing?

Thanx

Georg

Re: scheduling CW2K backup on Win2K gives critical error from at

Do you think your NT or Win2000's "Task Scheduler" service is not running? You can find out by:

NT:

Control Panel-->Services

Win200:

Control Panel-->Administrative Tools-->Services

Look for "Task Scheduler". If it is not running, you can start it. You can also try a simple AT command at the DOS prompt:

at \\pc_ip_address 23:59:00 "dir c:\ > junk.txt"

at

will show you the new scheduled job. If this does not work, then you may have a service problem with your box. AT command has nothing to do with CW2000. Do you think there may be 2 installations of the AT command. Can you try on another PC to see if it works for you.

The DOS command should be something like, assuming you put CW2000 on C: drive:

C:\PROGRA~1\CSCOpx\bin\perl.exe C:\PROGRA~1\CSCOpx/bin/backup.pl c:\directory_you_want_to_have_the_backup C:\PROGRA~1\CSCOpx/log/dbbackup.log 1

The last "1" is for how many generations you want to keep. Hope this helps.
