Running a scheduled task

I would like to be able to run a scheduled task to start and stop Kernels, and especially to Connect and Disconnect a connection to a remote node and database.

There exists the capability to create User_Exits by generating .dlls however I am unfamiliar with these. In older versions of Net-work there were ways to set up simple batch (DOS) scripts to perform several functions like this, and ADABAS still provides the capability to perform almost all database functions using simple scripts.

Has anyone had any experience with setting up simple scripts to operate Entire Net-work functions.
