I have two servers -  both running on windows 2003 server OS
They are in the same domain.

I want to run MS DoS -COPY command to copy files between the two servers,
I get errror message that -
Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.

How can I copy files between those two servers?
I dont want to  specify username/password in the batch file that has thta Copy command

Thank you.
