As you can see the job failed when trying to copy the Config Archive shared folder - Clearly there is permission issues .



Disable the Config Archive and then run the NCM Job again and verify the issue

Configure proper permission on the config archive folder (Follow the exact same permissions settings on the Config Archive folder )

Clear the Config Archive folder (Move all the files from this folder)

Check the disk space on the Config Archive folder

Make sure the Domain User mentioned in the Log file does have permissions to the Server
