I automated a task in TOAD and was trying to use Windows Scheduler to run it weekly. In order for the output file to be saved to a network drive, in the schedule item properties (General tab) must have the "Run only when user is logged in" option enabled.
This is a windows scheduler limitation. It would happen with any other application that you run from a scheduler which tries to access a network location.
I did a little googling and found this:
If you have configured the task to run as a user account, and you entered the user's password when prompted, then use the UNC path (
\\ServerName\ShareName) instead of the drive letter.
Does it help?
thanks John, I was wondering if that was the issue, but with the "Run only when user is logged in" option enabled, it does recognize the drive letter and successfully executes the task
I understand that you can specify the drive letter when logged in, but...
I can't tell from your reply - are you saying that the suggestion on that Microsoft forum didn't work?
