Need to write a script.

As part of an automated install process I need to write a script that checks that the first sync has completed and then reboots the machine. Any Ideas where to start?

Re: Need to write a script.

Why is it that I always have a burst of intelligence after I give up and ask for help.

Posted for anyones interest or general flaming on how I could have done it better.

strCheck = 0

WScript.Sleep 120000

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

objShell.Run "regsvr32.exe /s c:\program files\mcafee\endpoint encryption for pc\sbadmcom.dll"

Do Until strCheck = 1

Set objScriptExec = objShell.Exec("C:\Program Files\McAfee\Endpoint Encryption for PC\SbAdmCL.exe -command:issyncinprogress")

strSyncStat = objScriptExec.StdOut.ReadAll

    If InStr(strSyncStat, "SyncData = 0") Then

        'WScript.Echo "PASS!"

        objShell.Run "%comspec% /c shutdown /r /t 5 /f", , TRUE

        strCheck = 1


      'WScript.Echo "FAIL!"

      strCheck = 0

      WScript.Sleep 20000

    End If

Good script. You get my vote.

Re: Need to write a script.

You could steal this function out of AutoDomain - there's a whole class in it which does nothing but handle SBADMCL in VBS, and it uses the COM object, so no nasty shelling out to dos..

But, what you have indeed will work fine.

I say it is Script-Shui or Script-Zen. Safebootsamurai can script while blindfolded!

Re: Need to write a script.

my latest creation is an overhaul to the setuser.vbs that is in the tools download. i'm creating a helpdesk tool to allow them to create users and machines, then link them without console access.

a future upgrade will allow them to view assigned users.

Re: Need to write a script.

pretty 🙂

I just wrote a couple of generic HTA's to do similar things - emulate the login box, plus get question/answer combinations. If you're interested I'll post them.

Re: Need to write a script.

I'm always interested in the things you script.
