DFS Replication Report Task

This is an earlier piece of code (says 1/21/2007).  I don’t do a lot with batch files anymore…however, it looks like this could still work and I thought I’d copy it here.

Purpose: Create Distributed File System (DFS) Replication Health Reports, post them to a web site and send an email notification when complete. This script was designed to run as a scheduled task.

Tested Windows Version(s): Windows 2003 R2
Script language: standard batch file
