$SvrList = get-content “c:\scripts\servers.txt”

Write-host “Print Event Compiler”

$UsrStartDate = Read-Host “Enter the beginning date in MM/DD/YYYY format please:”
$UsrEndDate = Read-Host “Enter the ending date in MM/DD/YYYY format please:”
$begindate = get-date ($UsrStartDate)
$enddate = get-date ($UsrEndDate)

foreach ($server in $SvrList)
$savePath = "C:\Scripts\" + ($server) + "-printjobs.csv"
get-eventlog system -computer $server -before $enddate -after $begindate | where-Object {$_.EventID -eq 10} | export-csv -path ($savePath)

The above code executes flawlessly on most of our servers, but for some reason I get the network path not found eror with a few of them. I am running this script as a domain admin, remote registry is enabled and automatic, firewall is more or less disabled. Any ideas?
