Passing credentials with xcopy

DOS Batch
I need to write a Windows DOS script in order to automate copying a couple files over out AD network. I can certainly set this up using Windows scheduler, but I need to be able to call this .bat file which would copy the file using a third party scheduler software (ESP). What I'm trying to figure out is how to pass the credentials I need to be able to copy the files. The files are being copied from one Windows Server to another. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

xcopy doesn’t have a way to pass in parameters for the remove machine. You would need to setup the remote scheduler to launch the batch file under the correct credentials.
