Hi all,
I have a few robocopy batch files that i use daily.

for the last couple weeks, i cant run them. They give me the error of "you do not have the managing audit user right"

they have worked fine for years.
It's not machine specific, as it's happening on more than one box.  Running XP on the boxes, and Win2k3 server.

stopped about 12 days ago.

i resolved this myself.
For some reason the Administrators group had lost this right.

In Default Domain Policy - Computer Configuration - Security Setttings - Local Policies - User Rights Assignments.  Add the administrator (or whatever account you need, Administrator is default) to the Mananage Auditing and security Log.

Hope this helps some of you out there.

This was also causing issues with my exchange servers as they needed this right as well.

~Peace~
