Stopping scheduled tasks that run too long - Server 2008 vs. Server 2003
Posted on 2010-08-13
In Server 2003, we could configure tasks to be stopped if they ran for 10 minutes. In 2008, this setting seems to have a lowest value of 30 minutes. We have limited time in the night to run these tasks and 30 minutes may cause our tasks to collide. We've noticed that we can manually enter 10 minutes in the combo box and it seems to stick, but are unsure as to whether this will work or is even wise to attempt.
Are missing something, is 30 minutes truly the lowest value, or can we manually enter 10 and sleep soundly. Thanks
