Scheduled shutdown problem

I have a script that will shutdown the workstation at a determined time,
however the workstation will not shutdown if the user has locked the
desktop. If I uninstall the Novell client (4.9 sp1) the script will
shutdown the workstation even if it is locked.

Has anyone experienced this problem? If so, how did you correct it?

Thanks!

Re: Scheduled shutdown problem

Robert,

What does your script call to perform the shutdown?
Can you reproduce with Update A on client 4.91?...

Production patches for 4.91

Beta patches for 4.91 (beta can be better in some cases than production)

You might also consider testing beta SP1.

Re: Scheduled shutdown problem


We sort of experienced the same problem. We set up a scheduled task to
use ncshtdwn.exe to restart the PC. But that didn't work when
workstations were locked. The solution it appeared was to use
Micro$ofts own shutdown.exe.

It's part of the Resource Kit or you can try and download it from
http://www.budja.com/shutdown/

Also check out http://support.microsoft.com/?id=831895

Cheers,
Johan

Re: Scheduled shutdown problem

I am using shutdown executable that comes with XP pro. I'll give the newer
clien a try and see what happens.
