  • (not Hyena related) : problems with a scheduled file copy

    I wonder if anyone can solve this one... We are trying to create a routine to centrally store our ERD/repair disk info.

    We run RDISK which creates the files in the \repair\ folder on various
    member servers. This folder is shared as REPAIR$.

    We have created a share (ERD$) on another server.

    We have then created a routine that performs the XCOPY command multiple
    times to copy files from each server to central location. Exact syntax :
    xcopy \\ServerName\repair$\*.* \\NewServer\ERD$\ServerName /H /C /R

    I have created an account which is a member of the administrators group on
    the various member servers.


    I can sign on as this account and the routine runs perfectly, all files
    are created exactly as required. However, when I schedule this task the
    files dont copy. The SCHEDULER service is started using the specific
    account (rather than local system) so it should have rights to copy.

    Any ideas ?
