Win 2008 server Scheduler does not seem to work properly

I want to create a job that starts at 2 AM every day, repeats every 2 hours, for a total of 12 hours.  I entered aTask that says exactly that.  I entered the job at 10 AM on 5/2/2011.

when I click Refresh, the Trigger says that the next time it will run is 5/3/2011 at 2 AM.

I told it to run every 2 hours, but it says it will start 24 hours from the start time.   What happened to running every 2 hours??

Thanks for any ideas.

because it will start everyday at 2 am, because it´s the start time you specified

If you had specified start "now" (the time you created the task) it must run every two hours from that point in time
that is correct, yo told it to start at 2 am, the "next" 2 am the next day

I even changed the trigger to begin at 5/1/2011, but it did not start running every two hours.
