Rename and Copy local file to Server
We use AB Tutor to log computer activity.
I would like to copy these logs to a folder on the server when the user logs off.
Now all the computers name the files by their date ie 20080215.blg
This means I need to rename the file to the computer name aswell as copy it, or create a subfolder with the computer name.
Any ideas? Or do I just tell people logs are lost when the computer is imaged, as current practice.

Sounds fairly simple with a batch script and scheduled task.
On my machine I have a enviroment variable called COMPUTERNAME which I can see by doing echo %COMPUTERNAME%. I'm not sure if this is their by default (perhaphs someone else can confirm). This combined with xcopy to a UNC path should do the job.....
Schedule to run as often as you need or just run manually before you image the machine.

well bat files are just a list of dos commands so hardly even coding.
You'd want something *like*
xcopy /E /v /c /y sourcedrive:\sourcefolder\ \\servername\writableshare\%computername%\

My God that is simple! Cheers Jona.
I've used scripts to copy stuff before but usally from the server.
I had no idea you could just put %COMPUTERNAME% and it would automatically do that.
