how to run shell scripts from windows

Here's the situation:
We have created scheduled jobs in CRON on all of our AIX lpars (about 10 of them) and the scheduled tasks are about 300.
Whenever a request comes in to perform a task we login to the servers and schedule the job manually. These requests are of "ON DEMAND" type, so there's no specific time or date that we run them consistently.

Is there a way I can run the script from my laptop (windows OS) using SSH? I have Secure CRT installed on my laptop. If so, can you provide a sample script.

Hi nallak,

Thanks for the question. You can find the script manual that should help you write your script at the following location:
After you have created your script, you could create a Windows task to execute the script via SecureCRT. The Using the Software / Command-Line Options chapter has information for using SecureCRT from the command-line.

For example:
securecrt.exe /script c:\temp\script.vbs /s <session_name>
Does this help to answer your question?
