I wrote a stored procedure that runs a dump database transact sql. I am trying to dump the database to a dump device that points to a datafile mapped across the network to another server. I get this error when I try:

Both servers run adaptive server enterprise and are mapped to each other. I have tried dumping directly to a datafile....this only works if I dump it on the same server, but as soon as I try to dump it across my subnet to my other server (remember both servers are mapped) it blows up.
I am dumping to my F drive (which in actuality is mapped as the D drive on my other server) , What do I do. I thought it might be permision issues but now I doubt it since I can copy and move files to and from these same mapped directories...........
Hm, I don't know why it would fail, but you said you have ASE running on the other box? I know you can use DUMP DATABASE ... AT someserver to dump to a remote backup server. I would suggest trying that; I'd think it would be faster / more reliable too.
