We have some legacy .bat scripts full of osql commands to existing SQL Server instances / dbs on our network.
We've tried running the .bat scripts from our app server (Win Server 2008) but get the error: "osql.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command"
We are hoping we don't need to install a full-blown SQL Server to get access to osql.
I've heard you can get it from the Client Tool installation, and no license required as long as connecting to licensed sql servers. (which we would be).
Can anyone confirm?
Are "Client Tools" part of the installation discs?
Is this a viable solution?
Thanks for your help folks!
