This is based on my dealing with AT under NT 4, so caveat emptor...

Check the permission of the user ID under which the AT scheduler is running;
if it is "system" (presuming you repo is across the wire) then change it to
something else as the "system" user doesn't have network access. Note future
password changes to this user id must be changed manually. 

To test your environment under AT you can use unix style redirection:
        at 10:00 c:\path\batfile ">c:\path\file.log" "2>&1"

where c:\path\batfile.bat contains:

Note you cannot put dos primatives (built-in commands) directly in the AT
