comment How can I automate the process of fetching files from remote Windows servers?
That's a great idea using virtualization to do it. Not sure I would have thought of that.

We require all of our customers to allow us to connect to their servers so they we can help support them, so there is already a precedent for us arbitrarily connecting to their sites more or less any time. It feels like the path of least resistance to me, but perhaps it isn't.

Seems like that could work, but I'd essentially need a machine that I would have to dedicate to nothing but gathering the data since I wouldn't be able to do anything else on it while the GUI scripts were running. It also makes a lot of assumptions about all of these servers being configured/setup in the exact same way.

Phoning home was definitely my initial inclination, however, we have some semi-unique connection methods that make that not ideal. Additionally, I think it would be really hard to get customers to be happy about a phone home feature, especially due to how sensitive the data usually is.

That only works when I'm on the same network right? These are arbitrary machines somewhere out there on the internet.

I'm pretty sure you have those backwards. If you pull it up and smitty and push F1, it very clearly says that -1 disables and 0 locks out immediately.
