Crude but:
Redirect the command response to text files then combine them. This works for an unlimited number of commands. There is probably a more ellegant method but I'm tired and a thunder storm is coming in...

Ipconfig /all > \\servername\share\text1.txt
ping x.xx.xx.x > \\servername\share\text2.txt
tracert x.xx.xx.x > \\servername\share\text3.txt

copy \\servername\share\text1.txt + \\servername\share\text2.txt + \\servername\share\text3.txt \\servername\share\text.txt
del \\servername\share\text1.txt
del \\servername\share\text2.txt
del \\servername\share\text3.txt

I wasn't sure if you wanted to keep appending to text.txt for multiple runs. If that's the case then just add text.txt as the first file in the copy list. The copy + command appends all files in the string then saves them to the destination file. You might have to add a /Y to force an over write of text.txt without a prompt but I think it runs without the /Y.

Ipconfig /all > \\servername\share\text1.txt
ping x.xx.xx.x > \\servername\share\text2.txt
tracert x.xx.xx.x > \\servername\share\text3.txt

copy \\servername\share\text.txt + \\servername\share\text1.txt + \\servername\share\text2.txt + \\servername\share\text3.txt \\servername\share\text.txt
del \\servername\share\text1.txt
del \\servername\share\text2.txt
del \\servername\share\text3.txt

You will need to create an empty text.txt to start or you'll get a file not found.

huh? admend? do you mean append?

in which case, why not just run the batch file and redirect to append the output to a text file (ie: test.bat >> \\servername\share\text.txt) or, you could modify the commands in the text file to redirect/appended (ie, in your batch file, run "ping x.x.x.x >> text.txt")

no need to copy after wards.. the single ">" will redirect output to a new file (or overwrite an existing file) .. a double ">>" will append to an existing file.

I dont think you can use inc paths in dos. you need to map a network drive to my knowledge. You can do "net use" to do that though.
