Next step(s) in scheduling a python script to run automatically

Discussion created by BrianO on Mar 5, 2012
I have a python script that I want to schedule to run automatically each night.  I know I need to create a .bat file and schedule that to run on my server.  My question is--what components need to be on that server for the python script to run successfully?

Do I need to install python?  How about ArcGIS Desktop?  If the server being used happens to have ArcGIS Server installed, are the components already installed?  That could influence which server I launch the script from.

Any information/tips on this are most appreciated!  Thanks in advance.
