how do you transfer tasks from OS 03 to 08. Is there any automated process or does it have to be built from scratch step by step in 08.

Can you be a bit more specific ?

You can add a 2008 DC to a 2003 Domain and then transfer stuff like AD, DNS, DHCP etc

What are you trying to do ?

On the station that holds schedule tasks make a network connection to \\server\c$\windows\tasks you can then copy schedule tasks directly into this folder

Scheduled Tasks are kept in C:\Windows\Tasks - just copy and paste them on the new sever.

to change ID/Password - Right Click on the Task | Click Properties fill in the "Run As" box, Click Password and enter the new password.

in 2003, the task was called
SendFiles
when i copied to 2008, it's name is now SenfFiles.job

if i double click on it, it says 'Windows can't open this file....what would you like to do...select a program from the list etc'
