I have a scheduled task that is I setup identically on a Windows 2000 Server and a Windows 2003 Server. It is setup to run a BAT file using a domain user account. The task executes correctly on the Windows 2000 Server, but reports "Could not start" on the Windows 2003 Server. Both servers are member servers of a Windows 2000 domain.
I can only get it to run on the Windows 2003 Server when I make the domain user account a member of the local administrators group. I have tried to give the domain user the "log on as a batch job" right using local security policy on the Windows 2003 Server, but it does not help. I also checked the security permissions on both servers and they are identical.
Why can't I get this task to run as this user on Windows 2003 Server?
