Hi All,

What else that I need to check if I have failed scheduled task (running using local admin account with password) ?

but when I restart the server it will work again after sometimes.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

In the Task scheduler - each item will have it's own line and the exit code will be on of the columns.

yes, the result is 0x0 does that means it worked ?
what's the guideline in setting the credentials to allow execute the task scheduler to run without user logging in

You are corect - 0x0 is the "Success" exit code.
At the bottom of the task scheduler window there are security options.
Set the task to "run whether user is logged on or not".

In this case it's probably not the scheduler at fault, but something within the script / file being executed.
