Archive Task completes, but reports failure - VisualCron - Forum

We have an archive task that takes text files from a network path, puts them in a zip file, and writes that file to an \archive directory in the same network path. It deletes the text files upon completion.

The task runs and does everything it's supposed to do correctly. The problem is that it reports "Access to the path ... is denied" and shows the task, and therefore the job, as failed.

The log file is below, with internal information changed:

Thanks for the quick response. Ah yes, I forgot to mention this. We setup the task with administrator credentials to rule that out. In addition, all folders and files involved were checked to make sure there weren't any deny permissions or anything strange like that. 2011-11-11T22:32:14Z Right now you are using a "hidden" folder (it$) - could you try using a "normal" UNC path?

We just tried that, but we get the same behavior when the task is run.

Strange thing about the error is that VisualCron is trying to delete the archive file. Is it already existing? Have you tried a new file?

No, it shouldn't be trying to delete any files except for the .txt files that go into the archive. Each archive uses a date variable to create the zip file, so there should never be the same filename. We have tried a new file in a new directory, with an without using the date variables in the filename. The task completes but reports failure each time.

Not quite sure what you're asking. The archive does not exist before the task is run, as the task is only run daily. However, when the task runs, the archive is created successfully with all files inside.

1. Are you using "Delete source file after"?
2. do you have more than one "archive item" in the Compress Task?

Could you please test this version: http://neteject.com/down...Cron/VisualCron6.0.4.exe

We have fixed a Credential error that affects the second archive item. Hopefully this resolves the issue. Please get back to us with feedback.
