On XP I could enter in an UNC path \\computername\   this would show Scheduled tasks and printers

However when I do this on Vista I only see Printers

How do I turn this on for Vista?

thanks in advance

This does show me a file format ofwhat task exists however it's not through the actual task scheduler.

I can't do a properties on the task or run it manually.

Perhaps you need to run the AT command:

There is a mix of both tasks scheduled some configured only for vista others for XP/2003 etc...

If do the unc path from an xp machine to a vista machine i can see the tasks that are setup for xp/2003

It's just using the unc path from a vista machine shows nothing

So maybe that one of the many undercover changes to Vista from XP.  I couldn't find anything that explained some setting to make the UNC path in Vista act like XP's...

I thought this may be the case.

The best solution I found to manage multiple machines was to use a custom mmc with the task scheduler addin for each machine needed.

Thanks for looking around.

I'll keep this open for another day or so to see if anyone else has any input

Closing this questioin

Lee I'm awarding you the points as I do not believe this question has an answer at least not the one i wanted ;)

I did not that using the MMC did make things a bit easier when needing to check several servers.

Thanks for your time.
