Network access under Scheduler

Hi,
I am trying to use a scheduled BAT file which accesses network UNC paths.
The script uses the NET USE \\server\share password /USER:DOMAIN\Username command.
It fails with error 1219: The supplied credentials conflict with an existing set of credentials

The odd thing is, that if I run the cmd.exe with the scheduler (instead of scheduling the BAT file, I schedule cmd.exe), and get a command window and run the same BAT file from it, it works.

Your schedule service must be allowed to interact with desktop. And in parameters of AT command /INTERACTIVE swithch must be specified

If you are using the TCP/IP protocol the way round this is to change your commands to:

net use * \\IPAddress\Share password /U:domain\UserName

Alternatively, you can configure the scheduler service to start using a user account that has the required access, rather than using the default 'system' account which does not have network access.

The TCP/IP option is nice!
However, changing the start-up account won't work because then the script cannot interact with the desktop (and this is a must).
