Batch scheduler

By esemposki ·
Does anyone know if it's possible to Batch scedule a reboot on a server? I can get passt the autologon and all that. I have a file sizing program that only runs after a reboot and I'd like to not have to be here to run it. I can shcedule t but I have to schedule a reboot before it runs.

This is what I use:

at hh:mm shutdown /r /l

shutdown [{-l|-s|-r|-a}] [-f] [-m [\\ComputerName]] [-t xx] [-c "message"] [-d[p]:xx:yy]

Logs off the current user, this is also the defualt. -m ComputerName takes precedence.
Shuts down the local computer.
Reboots after shutdown.
Aborts shutdown. Ignores other parameters, except -l and ComputerName. You can only use -a during the time-out period.
Forces running applications to close.
-m [\\ComputerName]
Specifies the computer that you want to shut down.
-t xx
Sets the timer for system shutdown in xx seconds. The default is 20 seconds.
-c "message"
Specifies a message to be displayed in the Message area of the System Shutdown window. You can use a maximum of 127 characters. You must enclose the message in quotation marks.
-d [p]:xx:yy
Lists the reason code for the shutdown. The following table lists the different values. Value Description
u Indicates a user code.
p Indicates a planned shutdown code.
xx Specifies the major reason code (0-255).
yy Specifies the minor reason code (0-65536).

Displays help at the command prompt.
