I have a SQL job that runs via SQL Server Agent (Running SQL Server 2012 Enterprise). The last step of the job is to run an application located on a network share. Unfortunately I don't know the name of the folder that the application is in (the folder is the version number), so I'm using PowerShell to find it:
set-location "\\server\companydocuments\MyApp\Application Files\" $name = Get-ChildItem | sort name -desc | select -f 1 | select name cd $name.name & ".\Application.exe"
If I open a PowerShell window on the SQL Server then it works fine. When I run this in SQL Server Agent I get the following error:
A job step received an error at line 1 in a PowerShell script. The corresponding line is 'set-location "\\server\companydocuments\MyApp\Application Files\'"
I thought it might be a permissions issue so I've tried SQL Server Agent running under my credentials (it's a test server, not production) but I still get the same error. I've also tried mapping a network drive to the shared folder instead of UNC paths, but the same error.
Can anyone suggest how I can connect to this folder?
