I would like to have a script which will run as a scheduled task which will zip a log file on a system and then will transfer the file to a ftp server. This will run as a scheduled task on a daily basis and also will run a similar one for a week base . I have a script written by someone else on which gives different results when ran differently when ran as scheduled task and manual. When its ran as a manual batch the transfered file size seems ok ? (not hardly checked) but when run as a scheduled task the log file transfered size is nearly at %1. Im giving the script
(some data maybe deleted like password etc)


for /f "tokens=1,2 delims==," %%a in ('C:\cron\omega\yesterday') do (
set p1=%%a
set p2=%%b

set ftpScript=C:\temp\tmp_FTPScript.cmd
set fileName=C:\temp\cpDailyLog_%p1%

echo C:\windows\fw1\r65\fw1\log\%p2%_*
zip C:\windows\fw1\r65\fw1\log\%p2%_*

ping -n 1 -w 900000 > nul

echo open 10.x.x.x > %ftpScript%
echo ftpuser>> %ftpScript%
echo password>> %ftpScript%
echo bin >> %ftpScript%
echo cd logs >> %ftpScript%
echo cd omega >> %ftpScript%
echo cd cp >> %ftpScript%

echo put >> %ftpScript%
echo bye >> %ftpScript%

ftp -s:%ftpScript%

ping -n 1 -w 900000 > nul

del %ftpScript%

Here is a script that will run on all Windows versions. The script will upload C:\temp\cpDailyLog.txt file to an FTP server daily.

# Script UploadDailyLog.txt
# Input arguments
var str ftpserver, ftplogin, ftppassword
echo $ftplogin "\n" $ftppassword > "C:/ftpcommands.txt"
echo "put \"C:\temp\cpDailyLog.txt\"" >> "C:/ftpcommands.txt"
echo "bye" >> "C:/ftpcommands.txt"
system ftp -s:C:/ftpcommands.txt $ftpserver
system del "C:/ftpcommands.txt"

This script is in biterscripting. Save the script in file "C:/Scripts/UploadDailyLog.txt", then schedule the following command to run daily.

"C:/biterScripting/biterScripting.exe" "C:/Scripts/UploadDailyLog.txt" ftpserver("") ftplogin("mylogin") ftppassword("mypassword")
