    Hi. I do not think that the old autoexec.bat concept work with Windows 2003
    Server. So how do I now implement a command to execute automatically when the
    server is restarted, and without having to log into the server???

    I have a need to always and automatically have the server run a "ROUTE ADD"
    statement from the commmand line.

    Thanks,
    Manny

  2. Use the Task Scheduler to launch your command at boot time.

    Sorry to be a bother. I am not quite sure how to do this as I am unfamiliar
    with Task Scheduler.

    I went to START > ALL PROGRAMS > ACCESSORIES > SYSTEMS TOOLS > SCHEDULE TASK.

    What do I do now? I selected "Command Line" but where/how do I specify my
    actual command line of " ROUTE ADD..."???

    Thanks again!

  5. Now that you've solved your problem yourself, note that there
    is a Task Scheduler applet in the Control Panel. Much easier
    to locate than the path you used before. If you're a server admin
    then it will probably be worth your while looking at each and
    every applet in the Control Panel. Lots of good stuff there!
