scheduled Task

  Here's my problem. I'm using Win 2000 Server. I'm signed on to the
server using an administrator's account. I have a mapped drive to an non
trusted domain and use that mapped drive locally without a problem. Using
the native scheduled Task app in WIN 2K, if a program scheduled program attempts to use that
mapped drive, that task fails or runs on forever. If I use a 3rd party
scheduler the task runs fine. My task was created to run as admin on my
domain. Again... I can run the task manually (without the Task scheduler), but
either timed or with the run command it will not run from Task scheduler. Am
I out of luck?

Thanks

It's been a while.... and I've see some posts like this, none of them got a valid answer :-( I think you're stuck with 3rd party tools. I think it has someting to do with the increased security after SP5.

Have you made sure that the "run as" is filled the right way, and that you've checked the password to run the task?

Yes,
   "Run as" is the MyDomain\Administrator and proper password to the Win 2K server's Admin account. All jobs that operate within the domain work OK.. it's just when I need to go outside of my domain it fails. Yet I map and use a drive to the other domain manually or with a 3rd party scheduler without problem.

     Both Domains are NT 4.0 sp 6 but the Server/ Workstation where I'm using the Task Scheduler is WIN 2K Server. Again I am the Admininstrator to the machine where the tasks are running but some work needs to be done in the untrusted NT domain. I have many user priveledges on the untrusted domain and map drives and use them without problem. I'm baffled on this one. Please help.

I think you are right... I'll give it a little more time and I'll have to go to an aftermarket scheduler.
Thanks
