Can anyone tell me what 2003 server group policy object would prevent me from executing a batch file remotely? I have permissions, and can exectue it locally fine. However, when trying to call the batch file from another server, it errors out. I have a feeling this is a GP policy.

Thanks,

When you run a batch file remotely on a network location you need to fully qualify any files you access that are not standard windows commands.
For example. if you want to use the batch file to run a file called "startme.exe" which in the batch folder you need to call "\\server\share\startme.exe" to make it work.
Hope this helps
Cheers
