map a network drive in a bat file

Hi,

I want to be able to map a network path on my windows server with a simple bat file.

The easy command I use is this:
net use o: \\Pbtuk-639-02-13
move /-y "D:\production\*.*" "o:\e\AV Media\"
pause

Open in new window

However I get this error message when executing the file:
Net use
I have done a net view and then it was no problem to find the network path.
Net view
From what I understand the computer is shared with Everyone.

Thanks for help!

If you go to O: in your command prompt and do a dir, do you see everything you're supposed to see?

Remove the trailing backslash in your target path for the move command:
move /-y "D:\production\*.*" "o:\e\AV Media"

I think the clue is in the error...

When you set up a network share, the UNC pathname should include the name of the host, and the target folder. You seem to be missing part of the pathname. It should look like this:

\\hostname\foldername

Don't forget that the folder itself must be shared and have the correct permissions.

Peraduaadastra is exactly right, you need the host and share name to map a drive.  Fix that first.

Hi,

I changed it like this now:
net use o: "\\Pbtuk-639-02-13e\AV Media"
move /-y "D:\production\*.*" "o:\"
pause

Open in new window


But I get this error:

Get rid of the space in the pathname. Instead of AV Media, use AVMedia, AV-Media, or AV_Media...

I notice that you put quotes around the net use argument, but I don't think that works for pathnames - at least, I've never seen it used.
