you can use the psshutdown tool with the reboot switch in a batch file in a scheduled task

psshutdown -r \\server1

Microsoft has also made a utility included in their Resource Kit that allows you to do this, this is a pretty common request considering NT type servers need rebooted a lot. You can find a lot more information about how this works at this website.

Upgrade it to Netware 6.x and it will not ever need to be rebooted.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

I need to reboot because USERS leave files and programs open not because of server OS issues. I don't run Novell because we need to do work not just stare at our OS with no programs.

Your right about NetWare6 you won't need to reboot because it will go down at least once a day anyway want it to or not LOL
