SUMMARY: running Intralink reports remotely

Thanks to all who responded! In response to my query about running
Intralink reports without sitting in front of the server machine, I
received the following suggestions (which I have summarized):

- The consensus is that you can't just run reports (using runrpt) or use
the DSMU through a shared drive, you have to be logged in to the server
in some fashion. Other than sitting at the server console, here are the
options that came up:

- Terminal Services: Bad idea as they don't play well with Oracle.

- VNC: A number of people suggested this option. It requires software
to be installed on the server.

- PC Anywhere: A number of people also endorsed this option. Again, it
requires software to be installed on the server.

- Remote Command (from the Windows Resource Kit): allows SQL scripts to
be run remotely (including stopping and starting Intralink).

- Oracle Client Software (or some other form of raw database access like
TOAD): These tools connect directly to the dataserver the way the
Intralink client does, so no IT assistance is required. This can be a
risky approach as it gives you the ability to edit the database tables
directly. If you know SQL, though, this can be a good way to get
information from the database, but isn't really a replacement for being
able to run scripts on the dataserver.

- psexec (from
http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/freeware/pstools.shtml😞 Another tool
for running commands remotely. Although a number of people suggested
it, in my tests it didn't work, but probably because of security settings.
