Question : Robocopy – network path asking for username and password
Rem Backup to duplicate MAS database
robocopy x:DBServerMon \qm_itMas90_on_qm_it /MIR /r:1 /w:1 >> c:logmon.txt
here is the result in the log:
Source : x:DBServerMon
Dest : \qm_itMas90_on_qm_it
Files : *.*
Options : *.* /S /E /PURGE /MIR /R:1 /W:1
ERROR 1326 (0x0000052E) Accessing Destination Directory \qm_itMas90_on_qm_it
Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.
on the computer called qm_it, i have a folder called MAS90 which is set for sharing with Everyone (full permissions). i named the share MAS90_on_qm_it so that it is not confused (there are other MAS90 folders on the network). i dont think there’s a problem with the share because i can access it with the proper username and password.
do i need to set up a local account on qm_it that has the same username and password for the account on the computer that runs the backup? or can i put something in the batch script which has the username and password? other ideas?
Solution: Robocopy – network path asking for username and password
If the two aren’t in the same domain then I suggest you either.
1. Create a username / password same as the backup one on the other computer or
2. Connect in your script to the server first, i.e.
REM Authenticate to server
net use \serveripc$ /user:username password
REM Disconnect from server
net use \serveripc$ /delete
