We have two Windows 2000 servers which run our Cisco Call Manager software. The servers are in a workgroup. We also have one Windows 2000 server running Cisco Unity which is part of our main domain, the rest of the servers, domain controllers etc are all running Windows Server 2003.
We are installing some environmental monitoring software on one of the 2003 servers on the domain and I would like to be able to run a script which would shut down the windows 2000 servers in the event of something like an air con failure.
Is this possible?
I can ping the Call Manager 2000 Servers from the 2003 domain but not the other way round. If I go into “my network places” on the 2000 servers I can see the domain, and see all of the computers in it. However I can only actually access the Windows 2000 Unity Server. Likewise the Unity Server is the only one I can ping.
Is there any way to give the domain admin account that the script will be running under permissions on the 2000 servers? And is there a way to allow the 2000 servers to connect to the 2003 ones without removing them from their workgroup?
Any help would be appreciated.
