Hi Experts,

In the VB script, i need to copy one folder, from one locatin to another  in different system.

lets say Source : "\iacdev\eTeams2008 Source\"
Destination is \\eTeams2008_bkup\
Destination path is not accessible directly, i need to enter the domain name and password. how to include the user name and password, with copy folder in vbscript

Thanks Urgent
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Const OverwriteExisting = TRUE
    objFSO.CopyFolder "\\iacdev\eTeams2008 Source\", "\\\eTeams2008_bkup\", True

Dunno if this will work for you but can you use "net" commands inside your script? You would need to run something like WShell to run it or perhaps outside, set it up then call script

see solution here (as well as WShell example)
