Okay, I have been beating on this for the balance of the day and am wondering if anyone can help me out with this.
In order to provide for a likely recovery of isa in the event the control service bail I have attempted to create a script to execute upon the control service failure.
First I included the above commands in a file called rrasrestart.bat. When the service failed the event log would say it was taking action to call the file, however the file was never called. So I took a look around ms and found an q article saying that what needed to be done (by design no less) is to preface the bat file with forcedos.exe and complete path to .bat. So I put this in the recover box so it read as follows.
The result of this was that the file could not be found by the system according to the event log. However if this exact line is executed from the run window it is happy.
So after a little while I figured maybe the system couldn't find the forcedos.exe so I located the forcedos.exe, went to the run window and typed.
It worked just fine from the command line.
So I added the above to the recovery field.
After I inserted the fault the event log tells me the syntax isn't correct.
What is the deal? I'm confused and little regretful this is how I spent my Sunday.
Any ideas? Anyone ever gotten this functionality to work?
