Can you please check why it was marked as failed?

hello, aeldemerdash
You don’t need to use sudo. This post will clear your doubt.

Thanks a lot @player001

Hi @Inderpreet,

I got the task for the second time and confirmed everything is Ok this time and the file was copied to /backup folder on backup server as you can see from the screenshot. This shouldn’t be normal that the task fails again. please check.

Hi @player001

Can you please have a look?

Thanks in advance

Hi All,

Can I have an answer please?

@aeldemerdash Seems like you created and ran the script from root user however it was supposed to be done by sudo user (e.g tony for stapp01) .

yes, that what happened. the file is there though :slight_smile:

Anyway, thank you
