LANtastic v 5.0 offers a new deferred login feature. While this is a
nice feature it does have a few rough edges. One is that if a
server that was logged into with the deferred switch is accessed before
the server comes on line, a critical error will be generated. There
is no way to test if a server that has been logged into with the
deferred switch is now active without generating a critical error . . .
Srvrtst will test a server whose name is entered on the command line,
if the workstation is logged into the server and the server is active
srvrtst will return an error level of 0.
If the workstation is logged into the server BUT the server is currently
unavailable, srvrtst will return an error of 1.
If the workstation is NOT logged into the server srvrtst will return an
error level of 2.
Assume that you have a workstation and two servers, sam and george.
Sam is active and george has not been turned on yet. You issue the
Net login/deferred \\sam
net login/deferred \\george
SRVRTST SAM will return an error level of 0
SRVRTST GEORGE will return an error level of 1
SRVRTST BILLY will return an error level of 2
The following batch file shows how this command can be used
if errorlevel==2 goto notserver
if errorlevel==1 goto unserver
echo Server %1 available for use
echo Server %1 unavailable for use
echo Not logged into server %1
