Can't run a batch from UNC path in Task Scheduler

Hi,

Trying to run a batch via task scheduler but it won't run.  On the 'Actions' tab i put this for the 'Program/script' field:  \\opus\hyperion\automation\run_triggers.bat

Note:  The \\opus\hyperion\automation directory is on a SAN not a server.  I tried mapping the \\opus\hyperion drive to Z and then:

Z:\automation\run_triggers.bat

Still won't execute.  Could I use NET USE or something like that?

Is it a normal user account you run the task under? Certain computer accounts are restricted in having no network access. And you can't use drives mapped in your interactive user session.

What's the error message or task execution status?

It was due to a Environment variable on DEV server that was on TEST and PROD.  Sorry for confusion, I'm not a Windows Server guru :)
