Xcopy is frankly a relic from Windows 95 days and it's ... ummm ... "not as flexible or reliable as one might desire."  In this case I suspect that the old DOS command parser may be unable to deal with network shares that are not mounted as drive letters.

More reliable programs for copying large amounts of data are Unstoppable Copy or Microsoft Rich Copy (obsolescent).



However, you will still probably need to mount the network shares with drive letters.

Maybe an account access issue, I can only give you an idea on a  Jenkins installed on Windows Server 2012r2 which the default account on the Jenkins service is the local system account(which don't have network access permission),

You can check it by going to Services-> Jenkins -> Properties -> Logon -> just input a domain account or local account with access to both servers. then restart service.
