Is it possible to restore credentials on scheduled tasks
Posted on 2009-04-24
I have a Windows 2003 server with 65 jobs in the task scheduler. Randomly, Windows has decided to lose both the usernames and passwords on all of them. It's a shared server, and documentation is lacking, so the short version is I don't know what accounts the jobs are suppoed to run under, and if I did it'd take me days if not weeks to track down the account owners and get them to reenter the passwords. I do appear to have good backups, however. What do I need to restore to restore the security on these jobs? I can restore the \winnt\job folder and restore the tasks themselves, but that doesn't get the security.
