Batch File Task fails when coping from local folder to a cluster storage folder. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've created a batch file to robocopy SQL backups. The batchfile is triggered from task manager by using an admin account on both servers. The files being copied are stored on a local drive of the first server and are being sent to a cluster storage folder on the second server. The task fails everytime. Would someone please explain to me how to set the permissions so that the backups succeed?

  • More details would be helpful:

    • Which parameters are passed to robocopy?
    • What's the exact error message?
    • What kind of file system does your server use?
    • Does robocopy succeed if you you choose a local folder as a target?

    You will need at least the permissions for WRITE and MODIFY.
