I have an oracle db server on a windows 2k3 box. I am currently unable to create or copy a batch file to the root of c. I can create batch files on different folders (i.e. in my user directory) or I can create .txt files in the root of C, but not batch files.
I know someone might say, just put the batch file somewhere else. We have an update from one of our software vendors that wants to create a batch file in C:\ and they don't want to rewrite their update for one customer.
They suggested it might be caused by our HBSS, but we have another 2k3 box for IIS that has no trouble creating batch files, and it has the same HBSS installed.
I have tried with several admin accounts. My account has domain admin, and my SA colleague has enterprise admin.
Is there something in GPO that prevents you from making bat files in C:\?
