This article hints it's for Win7, but it may also apply to your server.

Don't think you can cancel a scheduled CHKDSK.

Just sort out a time that the server won't be needed and schedule a restart (which will allow the CHKDSK to run) and then sort out a scheduler task to defrag the disks.

You need once to restart the server thus the planned CHKDSK could run.
