Volume Shadow Copy Service(VSS) not running schedule on Domain Controllers

The service works if I manually do a copy, but the schedule will not run.  I get the following error.

Task Scheduler

General page initialization failed.
The specific error is:
0x8007000d: The data is invalid.
An error has occurred attempting to retrieve account information.  You may continue editing the task object, but will be unable to change account information.

I have tried running it with the domain Administrator account as well as my own account.  I think its a permissions issue with the domain.  This service did work fine on these machines before they were promoted to DCs.  Thanks for you help.

backup data..

remove shadow copy from the drive you have specified (disable it)

then re-enable it..

you might want to specify/create a service account..

That worked, specified a domain service account.  Restarted the service, deleted the schedule and recreated and it worked.  Thanks.
SMANS was actually the better answer, but the topic was closed already.
