    set date.
    set time
    delete temp files from temp directory
    logoff :-))
    start processes / programs
    .....
    just about anything you can do with programs that provide a command-line
    interface

    try http://cwashington.netreach.net for some ideas (and I'm sure there are
    plenty others to find)
    googling for 'scripting examples' might get you some ;-)

    To partially quote the following Microsoft Documentation:

    TechNet Home | Community | events
    TechNet Briefings Presentations
    Automating Administrative Tasks
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/community/events/server15.mspx

    "Logon scripts are frequently used to map network drives, start
    background processes, and initialize user environment
    variables... Although a logon script is typically a batch file
    (.bat extension), any executable program (.exe extension) can
    also be used."

    Given the fact that "a logon script is ... a batch file", means
    that they can perform any of a myriad administration tasks.

    As for resources in Scripting...

    - See the following Web Page that describes itself as: "one-stop
    shopping for system administrators wanting to manage their
    Windows computers using Microsoft's scripting technologies"

    Microsoft TechNet
    Welcome to the Script Center
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/community/scriptcenter/default.mspx

    NOTE: Once the "Welcome to the Script Center" Web Page is
    loaded, you can use the TechNet "Search for" box to search to
    scripts on a particular topic. And if you add the following word
    to your query the results will be mostly sample scripts:

    scriptcenter

    For example, if you are interested in sample scripts on the topic
    of enumerating environment variables, submit the following query:

    Enumerate Environment Variables scriptcenter

    - You can find peer-to-peer support for scripting technologies in
    the following newsgroup:

    microsoft.public.windows.server.scripting
    AKA: Windows Server Scripting

    The following page has links you can click to access the
    newsgroup with your Web browser, or with a Network News Transfer
    Protocol (NNTP)-based newsreader such as Outlook Express.
