xcopy command returns invalid drive specification
Posted on 2009-06-29
I am trying to find out why when I run the following command I get the invalid drive specification returned from xcopy when I try to copy a file from a remote server to the local server.
xcopy \\xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx\share d:\share
xcopy "\\xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx\share" "d:\share"
xcopy "\\xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx\share d:\share"
I can ping the remote server and have opened IP and ICMP thru the firewall. Both servers has the same user name and password configured. Everyone has full access to both the network share and and the local folder. I have the same problem regardless of which remote machine I try the command from. If I try from a local machine it works. It would seem to be a firewall issue. Anyone have any idea of what to open to allow this data tramsfer to work?
