converting xp scripts to run on solaris

September 7, 2010 at 14:44:52
Specs: Windows XP
Please excuse me as I am still learning Unix commands.

Recently we moved a major application to a new Solaris 10 system. Previously this was on a windows system that had a scheduled task that ran a .bat file. this .bat file then triggered a .vbs script to move an .xml file from one server to the app server. This vbs script also writes a log. When thats finished the .bat file executed a bash .sh to then run an import of the .xml file after the .vbs script is finished copying the file.

I would really like to keep the process as similar as process as it works well for our needs. My question is are there any guides (im not even sure what filetype I want to convert the .bat file to) to allow a cron job to run? And can solaris run .vbs scripts or will I need to modify that script as well?

man cron
man crontab
Also, Google.

(im not even sure what filetype I want to convert the .bat file to)
Bash shell script, presumably.

Microsoft's scripting language, designed to interact with Microsoft's COM technology, is only included with Microsoft Operating Systems (Windows). (Sorry)
