Using Scripts and Integration with Windows Task Scheduler

As with many of Metalogix Essentials operations, users may generate a command line script by pressing the Generate Script button (refer to Scripting Reference Guide for additional information).  For repetitive operations like backups, the application has been integrated with Windows Task Scheduler (WTS).  WTS allows users to run jobs on a schedule, in the background, even if no user is currently logged into the computer.  

Once a script is executed, the history will be available in the log viewer.  Unless specified in the script all history files will have auto-generated file names as a unique string of numbers. The path to all log files is: C:\Users\[UserName]\Essentials\.metadata\appLog.

To create a new script and load it into Windows Task Scheduler:

1.Press the Generate Script button within any of the Essentials wizards.

2.The Command Line Script window will open, displaying the script for that wizard action. Press Copy to Clipboard.
