With most commands, an ErrorLevel greater than 0 indicates a
failure of some sort. It's the same with sprers.eu With "net start"
2 could mean that the service was already running, or that there
is no such service, and probably a few other error conditions too.

Thanks. I understand the theory, but it's the details I need. Somewhere there
must be documentation for sprers.eu that says, "error code X occurs when ".
I just don't know where to find it - the best I can find just tells me that
the command returns an integer.

This is just a wild guess, but perhaps the error code X can just be
plugged into a 'net helpmsg x' command.

I found a reference to NET HELPMSG with a google search. I hadn't
known about it before this, though it appears to be a standard command
console utility. When I checked the Windows help for HELPMSG I found
this example

NET The requested service has already been started.

which suggests that an error code of 2 is not related to a started
service error. In fact, when I checked NET HELPMSG 2 it returned

The system cannot find the file specified.

I also not that there are MANY, MANY error levels returned from NET,
since its error codes run to four digits (up to 10, possibilities,
though there is not an error for every value) so it's just not
practical to provide an exhaustive list. Rather, you'll need to trap
the error and then use NET HELPMG to deliver an explanation.

Has anyone verfied that there is a one-to-one connection between the
returned errorlevel n and the explanation in HELPMSG? (net helpmsg n)
I've gotten errorlevel=2 in attaching to a network printer, but the
helpmsg is "the system cannot find the file specified". Probably
because it is on a dfferent subnet/workgroup name, but still

Best to use the WMI method that D.R. posted in another
branch of this thread. They are very detailed.

FIND "<03>"') DO ECHO.%%a %%A :: Done ENDLOCAL GOTO:EOF :Syntax ECHO Display logged on users and their workstations. ECHO Usage: ACTUSR [ filter ] IF "%OS%"=="Windows_NT" ECHO Where: filter is the first part of the computer name^(s^) to be displayed

You can now see that the code has become more understandable to users who have not developed the code and hence is more maintainable.

In DOS, a string is an ordered collection of characters, such as "Hello, World!".

sprers.euStrings & Description
1Create String

A string can be created in DOS in the following way.

2Empty String

Empty String

3String Interpolation

String interpolation is a way to construct a new String value from a mix of constants, variables, literals, and expressions by including their values inside a string literal.

4String Concatenation

You can use the set operator to concatenate two strings or a string and a character, or two characters. Following is a simple example which shows how to use string concatenation.

5String length

In DOS scripting, there is no length function defined for finding the length of a string. There are custom-defined functions which can be used for the same. Following is an example of a custom-defined function for seeing the length of a string.

6toInt

A variable which has been set as string using the set variable can be converted to an integer using the /A switch which is using the set variable. The following example shows how this can be accomplished.

7Align Right

This used to align text to the right, which is normally used to improve readability of number columns.

8Left String

This is used to extract characters from the beginning of a string.

9Mid String

This is used to extract a substring via the position of the characters in the string.

10Remove

The string substitution feature can also be used to remove a substring from another string.

11Remove Both Ends

This is used to remove the first and the last character of a string.

12Remove All Spaces

This is used to remove all spaces in a string via substitution.

13Replace a String

To replace a substring with another string use the string substitution feature.

14Right String

This is used to extract characters from the end of a string.

Arrays are not specifically defined as a type in Batch Script but can be implemented. The following things need to be noted when arrays are implemented in Batch Script.

  • Each element of the array needs to be defined with the set command.
  • The ‘for’ loop would be required to iterate through the values of the array.

Creating an Array

An array is created by using the following set command.

set a[0]=1

Where 0 is the index of the array and 1 is the value assigned to the first element of the array.

Another way to implement arrays is to define a list of values and iterate through the list of values. The following example show how this can be implemented.

Example

@echo off set list = 1 2 3 4 (for %%a in (%list%) do ( echo %%a ))

Output

The above command produces the following output.

1 2 3 4

Accessing Arrays

You can retrieve a value from the array by using subscript syntax, passing the index of the value you want to retrieve within square brackets immediately after the name of the array.

Example

@echo off set a[0]=1 echo %a[0]%

In this example, the index starts from 0 which means the first element can be accessed using index as 0, the second element can be accessed using index as 1 and so on. Let's check the following example to create, initialize and access arrays −

@echo off set a[0] = 1 set a[1] = 2 set a[2] = 3 echo The first element of the array is %a[0]% echo The second element of the array is %a[1]% echo The third element of the array is %a[2]%

The above command produces the following output.

The first element of the array is 1 The second element of the array is 2 The third element of the array is 3

Modifying an Array

To add an element to the end of the array, you can use the set element along with the last index of the array element.

Example

@echo off set a[0] = 1 set a[1] = 2 set a[2] = 3 Rem Adding an element at the end of an array Set a[3] = 4 echo The last element of the array is %a[3]%

The above command produces the following output.

The last element of the array is 4

You can modify an existing element of an Array by assigning a new value at a given index as shown in the following example −

@echo off set a[0] = 1 set a[1] = 2 set a[2] = 3 Rem Setting the new value for the second element of the array Set a[1] = 5 echo The new value of the second element of the array is %a[1]%

The above command produces the following output.

The new value of the second element of the array is 5

Iterating Over an Array

Iterating over an array is achieved by using the ‘for’ loop and going through each element of the array. The following example shows a simple way that an array can be implemented.

@echo off setlocal enabledelayedexpansion set topic[0] = comments set topic[1] = variables set topic[2] = Arrays set topic[3] = Decision making set topic[4] = Time and date set topic[5] = Operators for /l %%n in (0,1,5) do ( echo !topic[%%n]! )

Following things need to be noted about the above program −

  • Each element of the array needs to be specifically defined using the set command.

  • The ‘for’ loop with the /L parameter for moving through ranges is used to iterate through the array.

Output

The above command produces the following output.

Comments variables Arrays Decision making Time and date Operators

Length of an Array

The length of an array is done by iterating over the list of values in the array since there is no direct function to determine the number of elements in an array.

@echo off set Arr[0] = 1 set Arr[1] = 2 set Arr[2] = 3 set Arr[3] = 4 set "x = 0" :SymLoop if defined Arr[%x%] ( call echo %%Arr[%x%]%% set /a "x+=1" GOTO :SymLoop ) echo "The length of the array is" %x%

Output

Output The above command produces the following output.

The length of the array is 4

Creating Structures in Arrays

Structures can also be implemented in batch files using a little bit of an extra coding for implementation. The following example shows how this can be achieved.

Example

@echo off set len = 3 set obj[0].Name = Joe set obj[0].ID = 1 set obj[1].Name = Mark set obj[1].ID = 2 set obj[2].Name = Mohan set obj[2].ID = 3 set i = 0 :loop if %i% equ %len% goto :eof set sprers.eu= set sprers.eu= for /f "usebackq delims==.tokens=" %%j in (`set obj[%i%]`) do ( set cur.%%k=%%l ) echo Name = %sprers.eu% echo Value = %sprers.eu% set /a i = %i%+1 goto loop

The following key things need to be noted about the above code.

  • Each variable defined using the set command has 2 values associated with each index of the array.

  • The variable i is set to 0 so that we can loop through the structure will the length of the array which is 3.

  • We always check for the condition on whether the value of i is equal to the value of len and if not, we loop through the code.

  • We are able to access each element of the structure using the obj[%i%] notation.

Output

The above command produces the following output.

Name = Joe Value = 1 Name = Mark Value = 2 Name = Mohan Value = 3

Decision-making structures require that the programmer specify one or more conditions to be evaluated or tested by the program, along with a statement or statements to be executed if the condition is determined to be true, and optionally, other statements to be executed if the condition is determined to be false.

sprers.euStrings & Description
1If Statement

The first decision-making statement is the ‘if’ statement.

2If/else Statement

The next decision making statement is the If/else statement. Following is the general form of this statement.

3Nested If Statements

Sometimes, there is a requirement to have multiple ‘if’ statement embedded inside each other. Following is the general form of this statement.

An operator is a symbol that tells the compiler to perform specific mathematical or logical manipulations.

In batch script, the following types of operators are possible.

  • Arithmetic operators
  • Relational operators
  • Logical operators
  • Assignment operators
  • Bitwise operators

Arithmetic Operators

Batch script language supports the normal Arithmetic operators as any language. Following are the Arithmetic operators available.

Show Example

OperatorDescriptionExample
+Addition of two operands1 + 2 will give 3
Subtracts second operand from the first2 − 1 will give 1
*Multiplication of both operands2 * 2 will give 4
/Division of the numerator by the denominator3 / 2 will give
%Modulus operator and remainder of after an integer/float division3 % 2 will give 1

Relational Operators

Relational operators allow of the comparison of objects. Below are the relational operators available.

Show Example

OperatorDescriptionExample
EQUTests the equality between two objects2 EQU 2 will give true
NEQTests the difference between two objects3 NEQ 2 will give true
LSSChecks to see if the left object is less than the right operand2 LSS 3 will give true
LEQChecks to see if the left object is less than or equal to the right operand2 LEQ 3 will give true
GTRChecks to see if the left object is greater than the right operand3 GTR 2 will give true
GEQChecks to see if the left object is greater than or equal to the right operand3 GEQ 2 will give true

Logical Operators

Logical operators are used to evaluate Boolean expressions. Following are the logical operators available.

The batch language is equipped with a full set of Boolean logic operators like AND, OR, XOR, but only for binary numbers. Neither are there any values for TRUE or FALSE. The only logical operator available for conditions is the NOT operator.

Show Example

OperatorDescription
ANDThis is the logical “and” operator
ORThis is the logical “or” operator
NOTThis is the logical “not” operator

Assignment Operators

Batch Script language also provides assignment operators. Following are the assignment operators available.

Show Example

OperatorDescriptionExample
+=This adds right operand to the left operand and assigns the result to left operand

Set /A a = 5

a += 3

Output will be 8

-=This subtracts the right operand from the left operand and assigns the result to the left operand

Set /A a = 5

a -= 3

Output will be 2

*=This multiplies the right operand with the left operand and assigns the result to the left operand

Set /A a = 5

a *= 3

Output will be 15

/=This divides the left operand with the right operand and assigns the result to the left operand

Set /A a = 6

a/ = 3

Output will be 2

%=This takes modulus using two operands and assigns the result to the left operand

Set /A a = 5

a% = 3

Output will be 2

Bitwise Operators

Bitwise operators are also possible in batch script. Following are the operators available.

Show Example

OperatorDescription
&This is the bitwise “and” operator
qp ^ q
00000
01011
11110
10011

The date and time in DOS Scripting have the following two basic commands for retrieving the date and time of the system.

DATE

This command gets the system date.

Syntax

DATE

Example

@echo off echo %DATE%

Output

The current date will be displayed in the command prompt. For example,

Mon 12/28/

TIME

This command sets or displays the time.

Syntax

TIME

Example

@echo off echo %TIME%

Output

The current system time will be displayed. For example,

Following are some implementations which can be used to get the date and time in different formats.

Date in Format Year-Month-Day

Example

@echo off echo/Today is: %year%-%month%-%day% goto :EOF setlocal ENABLEEXTENSIONS set t = 2&if "%date%z" LSS "A" set t = 1 for /f "skip=1 tokens = delims = (-)" %%a in ('echo/^

The above command will actually run Microsoft word in another process and then open the file sprers.eu in MS Word.

Aliases means creating shortcuts or keywords for existing commands. Suppose if we wanted to execute the below command which is nothing but the directory listing command with the /w option to not show all of the necessary details in a directory listing.

Dir /w

Suppose if we net stop errorlevel to create a shortcut to this command as follows.

dw = dir /w

When we want to execute the dir /w command, we can simply type in the word dw. The word ‘dw’ has now become an alias to the command Dir /w.

Creating an Alias

Alias are managed by using the doskey command.

Syntax

DOSKEY [options] [macroname=[text]]

@echo off doskey cd = cd/test doskey d = dir

Once you execute the command, you will able to run these aliases in the command prompt.

Output

The following screenshot shows that after the above created batch file is executed, you can freely enter the ‘d’ command and it will give you the directory listing which means that your alias has been created.

Alias Example Output

Deleting an Alias

An alias or macro can be deleted by setting the value of the pop3 error 10035 to NULL.

Example

@echo off doskey cd = cd/test doskey d = dir d=

In the above example, we are first setting the macro d to d = dir. After which we are setting it to NULL. Because we have set the value of d to NULL, the macro d will deleted.

Replacing an Alias

An alias or macro can be replaced by setting the value of the macro to the new desired value.

Example

@echo off doskey cd = cd/test doskey d = dir d = dir /w

In the above example, we error opening video socket first setting the macro d to d = dir, net stop errorlevel. After which we are setting it to dir /w, net stop errorlevel. Since we have set the value of d to a new value, the alias ‘d’ will now take on the new net stop errorlevel now has an improved library which can be used in Batch Script for working with devices attached to the system. This is known as the device console – sprers.eu

Examples

Following are some examples on how the DevCon command is used.

List all driver files

The following command uses the DevCon DriverFiles operation to list the file names of drivers that devices on the system use, net stop errorlevel. The command uses the wildcard character (*) to indicate all devices on the system. Because net stop errorlevel output is extensive, the command uses the redirection character (>) to redirect the output to a reference file, sprers.eu

devcon driverfiles * > sprers.eu

The following command uses the DevCon status operation to find the status of all devices on the local computer. It then saves the status in the sprers.eu file for logging or later review. The command uses the wildcard character (*) to represent all devices and the redirection character (>) to redirect the output to the sprers.eu file.

devcon status * > sprers.eu

The following command enables all printer devices on the computer by specifying the Printer setup class in a DevCon Enable command. The command includes the /r parameter, which reboots the system if it is necessary to make the enabling effective.

devcon /r enable = Printer

The following command uses the DevCon Install operation to install a keyboard device on the local computer. The command includes the full path to the INF file net stop errorlevel the device (sprers.eu) and a hardware ID (*PNPb).

devcon /r install c:\windows\inf\sprers.eu *PNPb

The following command will scan the computer for new devices.

devcon scan

The following command will rescan the computer for new devices.

The Registry is one of the key elements on a windows system. It contains a lot of information on various aspects of the operating system. Almost all applications installed on a windows system interact with the registry in some form or the other.

The Registry contains two basic net stop errorlevel keys and values. Registry keys are container objects similar to folders, net stop errorlevel. Registry values are non-container objects similar to files. Keys may contain values or further keys. Keys are referenced with a net stop errorlevel similar to Windows' path names, using backslashes to indicate levels of hierarchy.

This chapter looks at net stop errorlevel functions such as querying values, adding, deleting and editing values from the registry.

Batch script has the facility to work with network settings. The NET command is used to update, fix, or view the network or network settings. This chapter looks at the different options available for the net command.

sprers.euNET Commands & Description
1NET ACCOUNTS

View the current password & logon restrictions for the computer.

2NET CONFIG

Displays your current server or workgroup settings.

3NET COMPUTER

Adds or removes a computer attached to the windows domain controller.

4NET USER

This command can be used for the following

View the details of a particular user account.

5NET STOP/START

This command is used to stop and start a particular service.

6NET STATISTICS

Display network statistics of the workstation or server.

7NET USE

Connects or disconnects your computer from a shared resource or displays information about your connections.

Printing can also be controlled from within Batch Script via the NET PRINT command.

Syntax

PRINT [/D:device] [[drive:][path]filename[]]

Where /D:device - Specifies a print device.

Example

print c:\sprers.eu /c /d:lpt1

The above command will print the sprers.eu file to the parallel port lpt1.

Command Line Printer Control

As of Windowsmany, but not all, printer settings can be configured from Windows's command line using sprers.eu and RUNDLLEXE

Syntax

RUNDLLEXE sprers.eu,PrintUIEntry [ options ] [ @commandfile ]

Where some of the options available are the following −

  • /dl − Delete local printer.

  • /dn − Delete network printer connection.

  • /dd − Delete printer driver.

  • /e − Display printing preferences.

  • /f[file] − Either inf file or output file.

  • /F[file] − Location of an INF file that the INF file specified with /f may depend on.

  • /ia − Install printer driver using inf file.

  • /id − Install printer driver using add printer driver wizard.

  • /if − Install printer using inf file.

  • /ii − Install printer using add printer wizard with an inf file.

  • /il − Install printer using add printer wizard.

  • /in − Add network printer connection.

  • /ip − Install printer using network printer installation wizard.

  • /k − Print test page to specified printer, cannot be combined with command when installing a printer.

  • /l[path] − Printer driver source path.

  • /m[model] − Printer driver model name.

  • /n[name] − Printer name.

  • /o − Display printer queue view.

  • /p − Display printer properties.

  • /Ss − Store printer settings into a file.

  • /Sr − Restore printer settings from a file.

  • /y − Set printer as the default.

  • /Xg − Get printer settings.

  • /Xs − Set printer settings.

Testing if a Printer Exists

There can be cases wherein you might be connected to a network printer instead of a local printer. In such cases, it is always beneficial to check if a printer exists in the first place before printing.

The existence of a printer can be evaluated with the help of the RUNDLLEXE sprers.eu which is used to control most of the printer settings.

Example

SET PrinterName = Test Printer SET file=%TEMP%\sprers.eu RUNDLLEXE sprers.eu,PrintUIEntry /Xg /n "%PrinterName%" /f "%file%" /q IF EXIST "%file%" ( ECHO %PrinterName% printer exists ) ELSE ( ECHO %PrinterName% printer does NOT exists )

The above command will do the following −

  • It will first set the printer net stop errorlevel and set a file name which will hold the settings of the printer.

  • The RUNDLLEXE sprers.eu commands will be used to check if the printer actually exists by sending the configuration settings of the file to the file sprers.eu

Debugging a batch script becomes important when you are working on a big net stop errorlevel batch script.

Following are the ways in which you can debug the batch file.

Using echo command

A very simple debug option is to make use of echo command in your batch script wherever possible. It will display the message in the command prompt and help you debug where things have gone wrong.

Here is a simple example that displays even numbers based on the input given. The echo command is used to display the result and also if the input is not given, net stop errorlevel. Similarly, the echo command can be used in place when you think that the error can happen. For example, if the input given net stop errorlevel a negative number, less than 2, etc.

Example

@echo off if [%1] == [] ( echo input value not provided goto stop ) rem Display numbers for /l %%n in (2,2,%1) do ( echo %%n ) :stop pause

Output

C:\>sprers.eu 10 2 4 6 8 10 22 Press any key to continue

Using pause command

Another way is to pause the batch execution when there is an error. When the script is paused, the developer can fix the issue and restart the processing.

In the example below, the batch script is paused as the input value is mandatory and not provided.

Example

@echo off if [%1] == [] ( echo input value not provided goto stop ) else ( echo "Valid value" ) :stop pause

Output

C:\>sprers.eu input value not provided Press any key to continue.

Logging the error messages to another file

It might get hard to debug the error just looking at a bunch of echo displayed on the command prompt. Another easy net stop errorlevel out is to log those messages in another file and view it step by step to understand what went wrong.

Here is an example, consider the following sprers.eu file:

net statistics /Server

The command given in the .bat file is wrong. Let us log the message and see what we get.

Execute the following command in your command line:

C:\>sprers.eu > sprers.eu 2> sprers.eu

The file sprers.eu will display the error messages as shown td sensor error 1 ricoh 2016 The option /SERVER is unknown, net stop errorlevel. The syntax of this command is: NET STATISTICS [WORKSTATION FINDSTR TTL
ECHO Errorlevel is %ERRORLEVEL%

REM Ping responds
IF %ERRORLEVEL% EQU 0 GOTO :ConnectedToLAN

REM Ping does not respond
IF %ERRORLEVEL% EQU 1 GOTO :NotConnectedToLAN

GOTO :eof

:ConnectedToLAN
ECHO Connected to LAN
GOTO :eof

:NotConnectedToLAN
ECHO Not connected to LAN
MKDIR %tmp%\TKH\Connected_to_Internet
REM VBScript to make popup dialog
(
sprers.eu Explicit
sprers.eu oShell, retCode
sprers.eu oShell = sprers.euObject^("sprers.eu"^)
sprers.eue = sprers.eu^("Shutdown computer now? If parse vsa parts error answer is given within 90 sec computer will shutdown.", net stop errorlevel, 90, "Shutdown?", net stop errorlevel, 4 + 32^)
sprers.eu Case retCode
ECHO. case 6, net stop errorlevel, -1
ECHO, net stop errorlevel. sprers.eu^(0^) 'Yes or time-out was chosen
ECHO. case 7
ECHO, net stop errorlevel. sprers.eu^(1^) 'No was chosen
sprers.eu Select
)>"%tmp%\TKH\Connected_to_Internet\sprers.eu"
CSCRIPT //nologo "%tmp%\TKH\Connected_to_Internet\sprers.eu"
ECHO Errorlevel is %ERRORLEVEL%


REM Clean up
RD /Q /S "%tmp%\TKH\


New Cmd - tried because the cmd above didn't work
Ping
IF ERRORLEVEL 1 SHUTDOWN -s -f

Parallel sever system: Back up data

The versiondog system allows you to regularly back up the data of a versiondog parallel server manually or using a batch file to automate the process.

The system is only partly available during a backup of the data. It is advisable to secure the data during the non-productive time, for example, net stop errorlevel, during the night or on the weekends.

Options on saving drive space:

  • The folder VD_TMP_VD of the server archive only contains temporary files. You don’t need to include VD_TMP_VD when you back up your server archive.
  • The folder vdServerArchive can be compressed before being backed up. To be able to compress your files, you need to have a ZIP software installed.

Requirements

  • The user performing the backup manually must have administrator rights on the server system.
  • No synchronization processes may no longer be open.

  • The VDogMasterService service must be stopped before a manual and automatic backup of the data is carried out.

  • The PostgreSQL database system (sprers.eu application) must be stopped. You can check this in the Task Manager.

Back up data manually

For the A net stop errorlevel of the parallel server system.

  • Local archive
    • Copy your local vdServerarchive to a location of your choice, i.e. on an external disk drive.
  • Remote archive
    • Copy the local vdServerarchive from your remote archive to a location of your choice, i.e. on an external disk drive.

For the B server of the parallel server system

  • Local archive
    • Copy your local vdServerarchive to a location of your choice, i.e. on an external disk drive.
  • Remote archive
    • Copy the local vdServerarchive from your remote archive to a location of your choice, i.e. on an external disk drive.

Back up data automatically

Your Batch file must go through the following steps:

  1. Create a backup of the vdServerArchive of the first server.
  2. Create a backup of the vdServerArchive of the second server.

Example of a batch file:

set SERVERARCHIVE="D:\vdServerArchive\*"rem if no remote archive set remotearchive variable to empty valuerem set REMOTEARCHIVE=""set REMOTEARCHIVE="\\storage\share\vdServerArchive\*"set OUTFILE="D:\sprers.eu"set 7ZIP="%PROGRAMFILES(x86)%\7-Zip\sprers.eu"&#;net stop "VDog MasterService"&#;if NOT "%ERRORLEVEL%"=="0" (if NOT "%ERRORLEVEL%"=="2" (echo Could not stop serverexit /B %ERRORLEVEL%))&#;tasklist /fi "ImageName eq VDog*" /fo csv 2>NUL FIND /I "\\%WSS%"') DO FOR /F "tokens = 1 delims = " %%A IN ('NBTSTAT -a %%a ^
