copy file between two servers-username/password

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.

No, create a bat file like copy.bat (can be a renamed text file) put in the command there, then go to Start --> Settings --> Control Panel and then scheduled taksk. Create a new tasks and at the end specify an admin account as the user who executes the copy job...

If oyu want to dot his, you could either create a copy job (scheduled) that holds the admin account or log in using an admin account and copy manually. Make sure the account u use is an admin account on both machines (like a domain admin account). Also, make sure the account is not locked out...

so in the scheduled tasks I should specify this command -

RUN : copy \\machine1\\folder1\\file1     mylocalfile

actually i was executing that batch file from dos prompt, not from scheduled tasks, after specifying password in schedule task its working fine.
