Working with registered executables and external commands

Hello community members,

I'm new to this board and want to give it a try asking for working with registered executables and external commands. The documentation is very limited concerning this point.

We are using ePO 4.5 Patch 1.

1.) I want to run a cmd script using the registered executables and external commands option. Does anybody know which path locations can be used/are supported? Is only UNC allowed or can I use ftp or http as well. Is it possible to add any login credentials for http or ftp? (like http://user:password@...) Do I have to mind something using a cmd script as an registered executable?

2.) The purpose of the cmd script is to add a local user using net user and net localgroup on one or more nodes. This should be used from time to time and on dedicated systems only. There is no special attribute to define such a note except of the node name and the IP. Does anybody know a good automatic response rule to deploy this script punctually and once to one or more nodes?

Thank you very much in advance.
