True but you won't see a difference. When you say "Task Scheduler", you
mean the Windows service/utility, right? Just curious. There's the same
issue with 'cron' and any service that runs under "SYSTEM". It has no
access to shares that require authentication to access. So you either
need to make your shares accessible to everyone or run the service under
your user name and only for your user.
Not sure I understood all that. I have been attempting to run the
scheduled task under the one-and-only username that ever accesses this
box. (That's where the mapped network drives live.) So is it possible
that re-installing as "Everyone" will fix it?
I've been thoroughly stumped thus far as to why a bash script that runs
fine from the command prompt misbehaves from task scheduler even tho
running as the same user.
