Batch Script – Logging


Advertisements


Logging in is possible in Batch Script by using the redirection command.

Syntax

test.bat > testlog.txt 2> testerrors.txt

Example

Create a file called test.bat and enter the following command in the file.

net statistics /Server

The above command has an error because the option to the net statistics command is given in the wrong way.

Output

If the command with the above test.bat file is run as

test.bat > testlog.txt 2> testerrors.txt

And you open the file testerrors.txt, you will see the following error.

The option /SERVER is unknown.

The syntax of this command is −

NET STATISTICS
[WORKSTATION | SERVER]

More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 3506.

If you open the file called testlog.txt, it will show you a log of what commands were executed.

C:\tp>net statistics /Server
