Sometime in a batch file you need to wait to ensure that enough time is given for some operations to complete (installation, configuration, etc.)

There are some ways and tricks to put a pause, if you have a specific time a good solution is use the Sleep.exe utility.

This utility is available with the Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools .  Useful in batch files, Sleep.exe waits for a specified amount of time.

Usage:

sleep time-to-sleep-in-seconds
sleep [-m] time-to-sleep-in-milliseconds
sleep [-c] commited-memory ratio (1%-100%)

Example :
sleep 5 ( waits for 5 seconds )

Since Symantec purchased Altiris some new training options have become available for Altiris training. With the budget’s getting smaller and the training needs getting larger, a new option is to take a virtual training class. This can save on travel cost for your company and still give you the training you need. It is still instructor lead and you can still ask the questions just like you are in a classroom.  To check out the trainging go to http://www.symantec.com/business/training/index.jsp

I found an helpful tool to reduce unused user profiles on network PCs. Typical example are shared computers used by different people in the same office.
The User Profile Deletion Utility (Delprof.exe)  by Microsoft is a command-line utility designed to free up disk space in computers running Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003.

Usage :

delprof [/q] [/i] [/p] [/c:\\computername] [/d:days] [/?]

Where:

/q runs DelProf in quiet mode, with no confirmation for each profile to be deleted.

/i indicates that DelProf should ignore errors and continue deleting.

/p prompts for confirmation before deleting each profile.

/c:\\<computername> specifies a remote computer name on which to run DelProf.

/d:<days> specifies the number of days of...

Hi Connect Members,
This tool looks for  performance problems in your application caused by the network. Server response issues certainly need to be tracked and resolved, but many Web sites are still perceived as slow even when the servers are fast, so to help this scenario something called the free Web performance analysis tool, Visual Round-trip Analyzer (VRTA), can help you with.Its great for develpers.

What it does-

The Visual Round Trip Analyzer tool helps web developers and testers visualize the download of their page, identify best practices and changes that improve web performance. The network Round-Trip between the client and server(s) is the single biggest impact to web page performance – much greater than server response time. VRTA examines the communications protocol, identifying the causes...
