Distribute a file to client computers from domain controller

By faisal_pisces ·
Sometimes i need to copy an important notification or some other document from W2k3 Domain Controller to my 1000 xp clients.

I am looking for the solution since a long time but failed. I dont want to email this file to the users rather i want the file to copied to the desktop of each user

Is it possible?

Please help!!!

Amend the login script

Instead of trying to sort out a push script, running on the server and pushing the file down to your 1000 clients.
Have a pull script, so when the users log in, the script runs locally and pulls the file from the server to the local desktop.

And another

You can update all of the Workstations at once using this technique.

Create and run this from the file server. You will need 2 files. The first one is the .bat the second is a text file with a list of workstations that you need to add to in the same format.

C:\test is a folder on the File Server, place the file that you want copied in there. If the file exists on the Workstation it will be overwritten.

File 1 = copyto.bat

FOR /F " tokens=1 " %%i in (WS.txt) do copy C:\test\*.* "%%i\C$\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop"

Put your files that you want copied into a folder EG: c:\test

File 2 = WS.txt
