I have about 200 remote workstations scattered across 5 remote sites.
The workstations all log onto domain controllers and logon scripts run.
I need to make sure the "Messenger" service is set to "Automatic" and "Started" when users log on.
I don't want to specify each workstation to set the service on, I would much rather just set it in their logon script.
Ideally, something like:
sc config Messenger start=Automatic
However, this is not setting the value; instead it returns a help file type screen.
What am I missing?
sc start Messenger
works fine, but if the service is set to "Disabled" it won't start. Hence my need to set it to Automatic, or at the minimum Manual and force it to start.
Thanks in advance.
