This session provides an introduction to the proper use of command and scripting languages and when each is to be used. The session begins with a differentiation between GUI based tools and command line oriented facilities and when each is appropriate. Specific emphasis is placed on the XLNT language and its similarity to OpenVMS DCL. DCL has been used in hundreds of thousands of customer production installations. Through the use of XLNT, DCL and non-DCL knowledgeable users can: * Perform Network Management Functions * Unified Login Script Control for NT and 9x machines * Security Management of NT Objects (files, printers, etc.) * User Security Management * Registry Management * Batch Job Management * Perform Repetitive and Ad hoc Script Development Windows NT System Administrators have difficult problems to solve concerning system management issues. Their task is made all the more difficult with the sheer number of machines that are deployed throughout the company. In such an environment, even simple tasks become daunting. Application Developers charged with migrating or creating critical business applications need comprehensive facilities for scripting various aspects of their applications. Attendees will avoid the pitfalls that occur with the proliferation of a number of scripting type languages used to solve each specific task and unnecessarily increase the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of the Enterprise.
