SQL Server invoking batch file

Hi,
I'm trying to write a trigger that on the insert/update of a column, I
want a directory to be created. If insert then create or if update
rename existing dir. Has anyone done thins before? Any pointers would
be appreciated.

Thanks.

You could call xp_cmdshell to do the task. But this may have some
obstacles, if plain users are running it. And if many rows are
inserted/updated at the same time, you will have to loop over the
inserted table and call xp_cmdshell for each row. That is not good
for performance.

But this is a kind of odd thing to do. Maybe you could explain what your
business problem is for alternative solutions.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
