>. . .batch job scheduling software for NT?

our needs are pretty simple; we are able to use the default job
schedular (the AT) command and e-mail the output logs to the
person responsible. This is for C jobs & isql jobs.

For processes needing to map another drive, or use ODBC this won't
work. A system started process will NOT do NET USE correctly nor
is ODBC available.

The problems with NET USE just come down to logon permissions. A system
process can NET USE (or use UNC access) to a public share.

Alternatively, just set the Schedule service to start under another
username (maybe create one specially for it). You can then give explicit
access to network shares to this special user. I have nightly backup
jobs that copy changed files to a network server running on this basis.

cheers,
