  • Copying files

    Is there anyway to copy 4-5 files to multiple computers in a domain to a specific directory from one system?

    I am trying to update about 10 report files and need to copy them to about 50 machines to a specific directory...any way to do this or have any suggestions?

    Hyena's Generate Macro function can help with this. You'll select the computers you want to copy the file to in the right window, then go to Tools->Generate macro.

    In the Macro Command String box you'll type something like:

    xcopy c:\files\*.* \\%E%\c$\path_to_dir

    Modify the paths accordingly, then enter an Output File Name of something like c:\copyfiles.bat and click OK.

    This will create the copyfiles.bat file with one line per selected computer, and change the %E% with the computer name. Then just run copyfiles.bat.
