Our company is in the middle of a move between buildings. I've been asked to schedule the majority of our servers to shutdown at midday tomorrow.

They already have a scheduled task for this, which occurred in the past, and occurred once only.

I simply need to update the date and time - they are already running as the local administrator account.

Is there a batch command to alter the date/time for these tasks on multiple servers?

I'm going to guess that this is Windows, even though the term "batch file" is generic. Please clarify and use appropriate tags. – John Gardeniers Apr 28 '11 at 3:57
