Task Scheduler issue

Posted on 2009-04-16

On my Windows 2003 Standard edition server, when I try to create a new Schedule Task, the window doesn't show up.  

I also see an exsting task, but I don't have rights to it.  I am an Local Administrator on the box too.  Is there sometype of local policy that could be causing this issue?  The windows Task Scheduler service is running too.

    Local Admin on the box does not have rights to create new scheduled tasks.
    Login as a domain admin and see if you can get it to work.

    Yes the policy would be if you are not a domain admin then you will not be allowed to create a task. Exception would be if a Domain Admin has given you the ability to make such changes.
