error 'Could Not Start' for Server 2003 Scheduled Task
Posted on 2008-06-24
Has anyone experienced and solved a Server 2003 Scheduled Task error 'Could Not Start' where the task runs after setting the password, manually clicking 'Run', and then scheduling to run automatically within the next hour or so before the day changes? The scheduled task is defined on a Server 2003 SP2 domain controller.
When I then set the scheduled time to be 1 day in advance, the task does not run and we get a 'Could Not Start' error. After seeing the error, I set the password for the account the task runs under, then I can either manually run the task or schedule it to start within the next few hours and it runs fine. I do this daily and the task will keep running under these circumstances. I have moved the scheduled task to a different domain controller in our forest and the same circumstances happen.
Anyone see this error and it so have a solution?
