Copy permission issue from server to server

I need to copy a file from a server to another.  They are on the same network.  The source path is \\intranet\dfs\HR\EMPList.xls, and the target path is
\\IntraEDU\E:\EMPData.    This copy needs to done daily by the "system" (ColdFusion server).   I tried to copy and paste manually.  It worked for me.  Obviously, I have the full permissions to do so.  Then, when it is run on the Scheduled Task or Web Browser (ColdFusion web pages), it returns "Access is denied".
How do you find and check the account running the job and give the full permission for the copy?

any ideas?

If u set correctly the "run as" in Scheduled Task (local system account cannot access network shares) it's a solution (follow the NJ suggestion)

the other is change the coldfusion running context  (using a different user with less privilege than system account)
so u have more security and your copy running also from web browser....

ColdFusion installs this account by default using the LocalSystem account. The built-in LocalSystem user account has a high level of accessibility; it is part of the Administrators group. If a worker process identity runs as the LocalSystem user account, that worker process has full access to the entire system.
look at
To run the ColdFusion MX 7 application server using a specific non-administrative account, follow these instructions:

I am still unclear what to be done.
W/O thinking of ColdFusion for a moment, how do you transfer the file from a server to a server with a regular schedule.
Can DOS or .BAT handle it?

create a cmd ex: copyFile.cmd
copy \\intranet\dfs\HR\EMPList.xls \\IntraEDU\E$\EMPData
::end batch

copy the batch in yuor c:\temp and create the scheduled task via scheduled task wizard or from the command prompt (only xp or 2003)
::this is the command to create task "running the batch copyFile.cmd as administrator every days at 8:30AM":
SCHTASKS /Create /SC DAILY  /TN "Copy xls file"  /TR c:\temp\copyFile.cmd /ST 08:30  /RU administrator /RP

great!!!!

I want to rename the file and then copy so thay I can keep the prior files.

rename \\IntraEDU\E$\EMPData\EMPList.xls  EMPList**with the Date&Time or unique number**.xls

copy \\intranet\dfs\HR\EMPList.xls \\IntraEDU\E$\EMPData

The issue is how to make unique file names, EMPList**with the Date&Time or unique number**.xls?
"EMPList+Date&Time+.xls would be the best.

Should be ok:

@echo off
set $tok=1-3
::set DD=year+mounth+day
for /f "tokens=1 delims=.:/-, " %%u in ('date /t') do set $d1=%%u
if "%$d1:~0,1%" GTR "9" set $tok=2-4
for /f "tokens=%$tok% delims=.:/-, " %%u in ('date /t') do (
     for /f "skip=1 tokens=2-4 delims=/-,()." %%x in ('echo.^|date') do (
        set %%x=%%u
        set %%y=%%v
        set %%z=%%w
        set DD=%%w%%v%%u
        set $d1=
        set $tok=
     )
)
::set TT hour+minuts
for /f %%t in ('time /t') do set TT=%%t
echo %DD%%TT%
copy \\intranet\dfs\HR\EMPList.xls \\IntraEDU\E$\EMPData\EMPList%DD%%TT%.xls
