Windows 2003 scheduled tasks "Could not start"

I have two tasks scheduled to start a SQL backup on a server. The server is Windows 2003 latest SP. When i created the scheduled task and run it, it is fine. Log off and check the next day to find that the task "Could not start"

I re-enter the password and RHC -> RUN and it works. Check back the next day and it has failed again.

It is as if it is forgetting the log on credentials somewhere

Any ideas?

Hi Vico1,

I have tried with the administrator account for the local machine and with the domain admin account. I have also tried creating a new domain admin, giving it all possible privs upto enterprise and schema admin, but i still get the same result.

Thanks,

CJ

Try to Change the Run as User as: "NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM"

Let me know if it works

I have done that and triggered a run - all is OK at the moment. I will find out in the morning if the scheduling is OK without a manual run.

Thanks,

Hi Vico1,

That seems to have done the trick - i will keep an eye on the process for a while just to be sure, but many thanks.
