Question about Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Full Version Volume License for PC
It might sound complicated, but it is possible. Your best bet is to use the AT command in a startup script. Make sure you modify the Computers GPO, not the Domain Controllers, and make sure your Domain Controllers are not in the Computers Group.
Create a batch file, name it whatever you'd like, and place it in a system folder such as System32. For this example, we will call it "shutdown.bat"
Inside the batch file, type in "shutdown -r -f" without the quotes, and save.
Draft up a startup script to run this command at the command line.
AT 2:00am /every:m,t,w,th,f,s,su "%systemroot%\system32\shutdown.bat"
You may change the time or days that you want it to run at.
What this will do, is by GPO, the startup script will run every time the computer boots up. The startup script will internally schedule the reboot for what ever time is specified. When that time hits, it will reboot the computer, and run the startup script again when the computer turns on. This way, if for any reason the schedule is dropped out after reboot, it will reschedule it.
AT is a better command because it does not require the Scheduler service to be running. It is more reliable. :)
Good luck, and if I can help you further, please let me know. And don't forget to vote! Thanks!
