Rename /Script

Hi Guys,

Here I have a simple rename script ... works perfectly fine. When files are on local machine ... But it will not work with the files on the server ...

Server is mounted
Path to the file is correct
Permissions 777
I tried couple things .. and no luck that's why I'm here Smilie

my $datestamp = strftime("_%m_%d",localtime) ; 
rename("/V/sh/test/test$datestamp.txt", "TW_v1_$datestamp.txt") || print "Don't have permission to rename."; 
print "Done";
