Sort of OT Batch File

use:

ping 127.0.0.1 -n #seconds -w 1000 >nul

(replace "#seconds" with a number like your 10 or 15)

This will appear to pause a batch file for a specified number of seconds.

Subject: [Vantage] Sort of OT Batch File


I am running AI on Progress open Edge 10. I have created a batch file to
shutdown the appservers, the database, copy the AI extent files, disable
AI for reset, backup the progress database, re-enable AI, restart the
database, and finally restart the appservers.

Here's my problem, I need the batch job to pause for about 10 or 15
seconds after shutting down the database before it commences. If I
manually enter a pause the batch job executes perfectly, if not I get
"database is running in multiuser mode" error and the batch job doesn't
execute as it should.



My Question is there a utility that can be run from the command prompt
that will cause a pause with a countdown to occur in the batch file?



I could break the file in two and run them as separate scheduled tasks
but that wouldn't be as cool.

Kludge of the day (if there is no better way).....
Find a relatively large file and copy it to some "junk" folder (noprompt & overwrite and all that) as long as it consistantly takes 15 or so seconds to copy on a non-busy system.
