You can use the MSG command to send messages to remote users connected to the server by creating the file in one server, and using it to send messages to other servers. You must create a batch file containing the command and schedule it to run at a particular time. This is more useful when you are going to take a server down, because you can schedule the batch file to run in a specified time interval, which will notify the server that is shut down.
