You cannot backup to a network drive directly using wbadmin. Use wbadmin start systemstatebackup
to backup to a volume. Then you'd have to create another scheduled task to copy the backup to your network drive.  See here for more details http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc742124(WS.10).aspx

so i used:

wbadmin start systemstatebackup -backupTarget:d:

1.this put the copy under drive D:WindowsImageBackup\servername, right?

2. it's prompt me with a question if yes or no..., can i automate the answer to yes to run it as a script?

3. next step is to use bath file and use the "move" command and them go to scheduel task in windows to time it every day to run this  bath?

thx.

use the -quiet switch at the end, so wbadmin start systemstatebackup -backupTarget:d: -quiet

Setup a Scheduled Task in Task Scheduler.

Create your batch file (for this example we'll call it backup.cmd) containing the lines

wbadmin start systemstatebackup -backupTarget:d: -quiet
xcopy /s D:\WindowsImageBackup\servername \\severname\share

where servername is the name of your server and share is the name of the share name on the server
Save the batch file to a folder. For this example we'll call the folder scripts.

Open Task Scheduler and run through the Task Scheduler wizard to create a new Scheduled Task pointing to the batch file. Set it to run Daily.

Look here for more information on Task Scheduler 2.0 in Windows 2008.
