I want to be able to create a scheduled task (to run defrag) on all my
Windows XP SP2 computers without having to access each one individually. Is
there a way to push this out to all the machines? I'm running a Win 2003

Hi Enrique,

As I know, we can deploy the scheduled task by GPO. To do it, you need to
create a .bat file, put it in the shared folder on the server, add this
bat file as a startup script in GPO, and then deploy this script. Please
make sure that all the domain users have local admin privileges.

To create such a script, you can refer to the following syntax:
AT 10:00 DEFRAG C:

For the detailed steps to assign user startup scripts, please refer to the
following article:

Assign user logon scripts

Hope it helps.

In the meantime, I would like to let you know that this newsgroup is
