Apply SP3 for SQL Server 2005 and try creating it again..
Make sure you are creating Maintenance plan for that instance by logging into the server directly..

Yes, I logged into that box, We have SP2 available and I think we have some bugs in version before SP1 and it should be fine with SP2.

And its far more better with SP3..

>> "No Description found"

Check whether you have provided a name for your Schedule.

The error is reffering to a description for the schedule! You can't leave the name and description fields of a schedule blank just fill it with some relevant text and save it.  : )

Please note that when you're creating a Maintenance plan your dealing with at least three object, the plant itself, the underlying job(s) (or steps) and the pertinent schedue(s); each of which, require a separate name and description. My bet is that you've filled in the description field for the paln and/or the underlying job(s) but not the schedule. Happened to me too when I was creating my first maint plan....
