Periodic Task Scheduler Error - does not start
Posted on 2002-05-01
I have two tasks scheduled on a Windows NT System through Task Scheduler. They are set up to execute Tuesday through Saturday at 2 and 3 in the morning.
It has happened twice now, that for some reason, the task does not start on a Tuesday morning. No changes have been made to the executable or to the task. No apparent changes with the network or with network backups. The first time this happened, I deleted the tasks and re-added them and everything worked fine. We thought maybe somehow the tasks got corrupted.
This time I viewed the log and received this error;
"The attempt to log on to the account associated with the task failed, therefore the task did not run. The specific error is: 0x8007052e: Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password. Verify that the task's Run-as name and password are valid and try again."
The big question is Why? Nothing has been changed with the user name or password. It's puzzling. Any help or ideas would be appreciated.
