scheduled batch file does not run - Windows Server

I am running a batch file that basically uses xcopy to copy files to a network share. I have scheduled it to run under the domain administrator account. It runs when I type the command (hrback.cmd) manually, but will not run when used with the scheduler. Any ideas?...

    Hello,

    Please look in the Scheduled Tasks Log File, it might tell you why it is not
    running.

    Hi Bill,

    Please make sure that your domain administrator account's password is not
    blank.

    In addition, you can also set Details View in Scheduled Tasks to check the
    status.

    Wish it helps.

    Hi Bill,

    This behavior can occur if the user account you used when you created the
    task has a blank password.

    Please refer to the following article for this issue.

    Have a nice day!
