I make a script  that copy a file from the network to the local machine. (script is working #1 once i am logued in)

I am using the script in the machine section so every machine on network are able to have that file updates.

The script is having an permission error.... Can't connect to the network to get my file i presume...

What would be the solution for this matter.

Thanks alot

Yep i can do that for you with a tiny modification on the name of the computers..

VBS Script:
dim strSource, strDestination

strSource = "\\xx08xxx00190\asdf$\chma\cfg\TNSNAMES.ORA"
strDestination = "C:\aaa\xxx\NET80\ADMIN\"

Set fso=CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
      fso.CopyFile strSource, strDestination, TRUE

Error msg: none sinse it's a vbs and it's executed before the loging screen (GPO for the machines opening script)

Script is working num1 if i execute it once i'm logged in.

The user isn't executing the script that's the thing. It's the machine itself that is executing the script from a GPO off my server.

My bad: here's the error that is poping up before the login screen apears:

Title: Windows Script Host
Description: script: \\dnsname...\sysvol\dnsname...\policies\...policies number\machine\scripts\startup\test.vbs
line: 7
caract: 2
error: permission deny
Code: 800A0046
Source: Microsoft VBScript execution error.

does it doe the rest of the logon script OK.. or does it not run it at all... because it looads like you dont have read permission for \\dnsname...\sysvol\dnsname...\policies\...policies number\machine\scripts\startup\test.vbs which is strange because bny default AD gives all users read permissions for the sysvol stuff.
