Greetings...!

I have a W2000 machine running python 1.5.2.  I have the following code.

import os
os.chdir('f:\temp')
os.rename('file.log','file.his')
f:\Nova\Logs\C2861.log f:\Nova\Logs\C2861.his
when I execute this by hand, it works.  When I execute my script, I get:
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "c:\myprograms\email2txt.py", line 986, in ?
    main()
  File "c:\myprograms\email2txt.py", line 980, in main
    CSVFile = ChangeLogsToCSV(NovaRec.keys())
  File "c:\myprograms\email2txt.py", line 900, in ChangeLogsToCSV
    os.rename(logname,newname)
OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied

This is what logname and newname were:
logname  = 'f:\Nova\Logs\C2861.log'
newname = 'f:\Nova\Logs\C2861.his'

I am logged in as admin in that machine.  Any ideas?

thanks,

jose
