Do you have any local policy's or GPO configured on this server? See if you have "Allow user to save server credentials" configured on this server and this can cause this issue that you are refering to.

I have the exact same problem with two of my 2008 R2 servers. I do not see the option for a policy named "Allow user to save server credentials".

Thanks for any help

This change occurred between Windows 2003 and Windows 2008 and has to do with how scheduled task credentials are stored.  The bad part is that enabling this setting is one of the recommendations from the center for internet security benchmarks on Server 2008.

The actual policy setting is Network access: Do not allow storage of credentials or .NET Passports for network authentication

The path to the policy setting is Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options\Network access: Do not allow storage of credentials or .NET Passports for network authentication

There is a workaround for this that worked for me.  Run Regedit and find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\

Find 'disabledomaincreds'.  If it's set to a 1change to 0

You should now be able to use your credentials to save/edit the Scheduled Task
