What command can I use in my batch file to make our Win2k server reboot each morning?

I am trying to schedule a task to where every morning our WIN2K Server will be rebooted. My question is, what is the command that I can use in my batch file to perform the reboot process? Is this possible or not? Please advise. Thanks.

Use the Shutdown utility from the Windows 2000 Resource Kit: shutdown -t 0 -r will cause the machine to restart following an immediate shutdown.
