Windows Server 2008 - CMD and bat file access is denied

Hello Experts Exchange
I have a windows server 2008 machine and I'm trying to run a batch file with logging in it, but every time I run the file I get Access is Denied.  I can run other Bat files and they work OK, I think it error at the point it creates a new log file.

Here is the code.
@echo off
setlocal

@REM *** START: Turns logging on ***
if "%~1" == "NOWLOGGING" goto NowLogging
    set SchedulesLogFile=%~n0 - %date:/=-% %time::=_%.txt
    set SchedulesLogFile=%~n0 - %RANDOM%.txt
    set SchedulesLogFile=%~n0.txt
    %0 "NOWLOGGING" > "%SchedulesLogFile%" 2>&1
    goto :EOF
:NowLogging
@REM *** END: Turns logging on ***


@rem Guts of batch file...
echo [%date% %time%] starting...
echo *** start of actual batch file...
...
echo *** end of actual batch file...
echo [%date% %time%] ending...

Open in new window


How do I resolve the problem?

You might don't have permission from the drive from where you running the command.

Check the NTFS permission

Maybe i'm misinterpreting the script, but what folder are you placing the file in??
Better yet, what drive. I only see that the files name should be date/time but there doesn't seem to be a folder.
What if you try to add c:\temp for example??

A couple of things you can try :
- create a folder and move the batch file there and then try running it from there.

- Modify your script to create a log file in a folder where you have write permissions. Hardcode the path to it in your script or get it as user input

What type of user are you logging into the server with and what rights does it have on the system, local admin?  Are you running the batch file from the user accounts startup folder?

Can you login to the server, browse to where this batch file is stored and double-click to run it manually successfully?
