In the command prompt you'll have to use an account that has permissions on the destination. Why do you want to use the local account?

or give the local administrator the specific rights you need om that resource..

Create a global- or domain localgroup add the local administrator (PCNAME\Administrator) and give the group rights on the share and directory..

i have created an 'OU' in the Domain Controllers folder & within the 'OU' the local user account resides, although i have not created a 'gp folder' - does this matter as i think ive already done what you mention but just in the 'OU'.  im sure i tried this before but it didnt work so i removed it and stuck with the 'OU' for simplicity until i knew what the 'hec' i was doing.  ha ha !!!!::((

i have the following:

- 1 master dc, dns & dhcp & sp2
- 1 member server & sp1
- 1 client pc - i wish to be able to copy some information via 'dos' prompt to the member server via \\memberserver....................

ive logged onto the the 'member server' and located the 'd:\ drive' and the particular folder is already shared there with 'everyone', but i've now also added the 'client' access just incase, although 'everyone' should do the job.  so i know im doing it wrong.
