Robocopy utility

I am attempting to copy files from a Novell server to a NAS device for
backup. I have the novell client installed on the machine I am running
Robocopy from and have admin rights to the Netware volumes. The NAS
device is W2k3 and I have admin rights to the server. However, when I
run the Robocopy job with a variety of switches, I get "Access Denied"
messages in the log file. This is for both the source and the target. I
can map drives to both servers and can browse to the directories on
both servers while on the Robocopy machine.

I can create folders, delete files, etc., etc. in Windows Explorer, so
I do not understand why Robocopy is failing. Does anyone have any
ideas....

Thanks in advance for your help.

This has probably nothing to do with robocopy.exe and
everything with current access rights. Identify one of the
files that generated this error, then use the plain old "copy"
command from a Command Prompt. I expect that you will
get the same error. What is the source folder name & file
name, and what is the target folder name? I would play
around with these names in order to find out where exactly
the problem lies.
