Sccm batch file operations (Software Distribution)

:Hello, i have to backup old Cisco VPN profiles and copy new profiles to the members of a specific collection.
The local support team has provided a batch script to perform these operations, i'm just tasked with making it run via SCCM, this is how the script looks like:
cd Arch*\Cisco*\VPN*\Profiles - This line is because some workstations are in spanish, it's not nice but works
move * OldProfiles
xcopy OldProfiles \\servername\backupProfilesVPN\Backup\%COMPUTERNAME%\ /s /y
This works fine running manually, the share provided to place the old profiles and to copy the new one has Share and NTFS permissions - Everyone Full Control.
I created a package wich has a single file batchfile.cmd that also names the single program, ie the only program name matches the batch file.
The program is set to run with administrative rights, so even non logged computers will pick the new profile asap.
Drive mode is set to run in UNC mode.
The advertisement is configured to download and run local (and so it does)
However the behavior is different , i get an exit error 4 and i added a pause to the batch and compared the differences
This run manually (on a spanish os computer):
C:\Archivos de programa\Cisco Systems\VPN Client\Profiles>xcopy OldProfiles \\servername\backupProfilesVPN\Backup\%COMPUTERNAME%\ /s /y
1 archivos copiados (1 file copied)
This run by ccm (same computer):
C:\Archivos de programa\Cisco Systems\VPN Client\Profiles>xcopy OldProfiles \\servername\backupProfilesVPN\Backup\XPSPAIN\ /s /y
La unidad especificada no es válida -----> (invalid drive specified)
0 archivos copiados (0 files copied)
Just for reference the package uses a local source folder on the sccm server containing the batch file, but the folder to backup and copy the profile is on a different server.
Could someone point me in the right way or suggest an alternative way to get this done?
Thanks in advance,
