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.

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.
