    I am trying to run a .vsb script which generates some output on a windows server.

    1.What will be the best operator? run a program or run a script

    2. where to put server login credentials? and

    3. capture output of the program.

     

    Thanks.

    The Run_Script operator allows you to paste the contents of the script into the operator where the Run_Program operator allows you to point to a file on the server containing the script. Either is a fine option it just depends on how you want to run it.  Run_Program adds some complexity in that you have to read from an external file instead of just reading the script that is already in the operator.

     

    As for the server credentials and the output, those are properties of both operators.  You can click the Question Mark at the top right corner of the properties screen to see info about the fields and what to fill in for each field.
