VKALVEMULA

Hi

i am using NET USE to log onto filer via batch file. but no success.

any other way to log onto filer via a batch file..

i am creating a batch file ( runs as scheduled ) and in that file..

i need to log onto filer and run a command and dump output to a text file.

as already said, try powershell.

if you really need a classic batch file, then I suggest using plink.exe from putty.

this would look something like that:

plink.exe user@filer snapmirror status >output.txt

Im not sure what you are trying to do, but you should be using Netapp's Powershell Toolkit

i want to run a batch file and every 10 min so that i can logon to filer and run a snapmirror command and send the o/p to to a text file

You should be doing this via powershell and dumping to a webpage or archive.. Every ten minutes is overkill IMHO..

can we do via batch file ?

Sure if you use rsh and open up host.equiv (unsecure)

You're not listening.. Focus on powershell, that's the direction that Netapp is going.. It's very simple.
