can't robocopy to the multible servers

I'm trying to copy a file with the following small script,but it's not working.What's wrong with it ?Nothing happens when it is run.

Basically,I want to do is :

Copy *.XDB file
FROM C:\Scripts\SAVscripts TO   all the servers that I have in LatestXDB.txt file.
Destination on these servers is \\%%i\C$\Program Files\SAV
Finally create a log file for the result in C:\Scripts\SAVscripts\Logs\


Here is the small script that I'm using :

FOR /F %%i in (D:\Support\scripts\symantec\LatestXDB.txt) do robocopy.exe "C:\Scripts\SAVscripts" "\\%%i\C$\Program Files\SAV" *.xdb /w:1 /r:1 /zb /V /LOG+:C:\Scripts\SAVscripts\Logs\LatestXDB.log

I do have full access on the destination folders.
Any comment?
Thanks

My guess is that LatesXDB.txt is saved in unicode; the "for" command can't handle this. Either save it in ANSI (open in notepad, "Save as", choose ANSI in the dropdown menu), or use 'type LatestXDB.txt' in the for loop:
FOR /F %%i in ('type "D:\Support\scripts\symantec\LatestXDB.txt"') do robocopy.exe "C:\Scripts\SAVscripts" "\\%%i\C$\Program Files\SAV" *.xdb /w:1 /r:1 /zb /V /LOG+:C:\Scripts\SAVscripts\Logs\LatestXDB.log

Anything in the log file?
Put an "echo" in front of robocopy.exe, run the script again and check if the correct commands are listed.

I've checked the log files,nothing specific to this job.
I've put an "echo".It just  appears for a sec and disappears.

Seems like you looked in the event log? I was talking about the "LatestXDB.log" file; is it created, and if so, is there something in it?
In addition, you can add a "/tee" (verify this, I'm not completely sure it's the correct one) to the options, which will display robocopy's output on the screen as well as in the log file.
When testing batch scripts, always run them from a command window, not by double-clicking them in Explorer, it's easier to see error messages.
You can add a "pause" at the end to stop the command window from closing after being started from Explorer, but this will help you nothing if the script errors out before it reaches the pause command, so go for the first solution.

One of my friend found out what the problem is.Here is the correct line :

FOR /F %%i in (D:\Support\scripts\symantec\XDBdelivery\LatestXDB.txt) do robocopy.exe "\\cmvismon1\c$\Scripts\SAVscripts" "\\%%i\VPHOME" *.XDB /w:1 /r:1 /zb /tee /V /LOG+:D:\Support\scripts\symantec\XDBdelivery\LatestXDB.log



and changed the permissions on shares.It worked great.
