Hi,
Does xp_chdshell works fine with remote server share like samba,dfs etc?
The services are started by windows system account.

-  xp_cmdshell to extract data
EXEC xp_cmdshell 'bcp "SELECT * FROM test1 " queryout "\\server\share1\test1.txt" -T -c -t,'

Thanks

As long as the SQL login running the command above has SUFFICIENT rights to that share it should not be a problem. We use samba server for our digital files and perform "imports/exports" of these digital files via SQL using similar method - we use SQLCMD utility not BCP.

yes it works but your bcp command needs the

-S Servername
-U Username
-P password

bcp DatabaseName.dbo.tableName out \\sqlservr\test.dat -S sqlservr\MSSQLSERVER05 -U admin
-P admin -n -T


is xp_cmdshell enable in  sql server,
