product that offers a simple, yet powerful, way to

upon the NetWare NCF batch capabilities while
incorporating the simplicity of DOS-like batch
processing functions with Novell login script structures

TaskMaster Lite makes an exceptional server(-centric) management solution and an alternative for
single server installations or networks where remote server or network integration is not a requirement
for server task automation.
To assist you in determining what capabilities TaskMaster/TMLite might offer, avanti have created a
set of TaskMaster/TaskMaster Lite Quick Reference guides. These Quick Reference guides provide
simplified documentation of all the commands and features supported by TaskMaster/TaskMaster Lite
in quick and easy to review format. These Quick Reference guides are available on-line in both HTML

Tasks can be written to load/unload NLMs; capture screens, enter keystrokes; and
copy files between volumes, servers, and the DOS partition. A powerful, yet easy
to use Windows client interface for automating task writing and a remote console
client (that does not require REMOTE.NLM) are also included.
