Save as Script

Use this dialog box to choose a name and path for the script file and the mode of execution.

Client

Enter or select the name of the client computer where the script will be created.

File Path

Enter the location where you want to save the script along with the file name and extension. For example, "C:\scripts\myscript.bat" on Windows and "/usr/scripts/myscript.sh" on Unix. The script will be saved as a .xml file and .bat/.sh file.

  • If .xml and .bat/.sh files with the same name already exist, they cannot be overwritten unless the bAllowSaveAsScriptFileOverWrite additional setting is used. For information on adding bAllowSaveAsScriptFileOverWrite, see Enabling File Overwrite.
  • Do not use reserved device names (for example, LPT1) as the name of the file.
  • The file names are not case-sensitive.
  • Do not end the file name with a trailing space or a period. Although the underlying file system may support such names, the operating system does not support them.
