I have 2008 server running DFS.  I want to user the reliability and performance console and that requires that the Task Scheduler Servce is running.  When I go to the Services.msc and try to start the service, I discovered that the property box is all grayed out and I am unable to change the service from disabled to manual so I can start the service.  Any Ideas.
