Windows Server 2008 R2 - Scheduled Task - bat file

I'm trying to get a .bat file to run as a scheduled task.  I can run the .bat file manually without any issues and it only takes about 10-15 seconds to complete.

I'm trying to setup a scheduled task in Windows Server 2008 R2 to run it periodically.  When i run the task from Task Scheduler the status staying running for several minutes until i manually kill it.

The last run result is (0xFF) even though when you look at the history event log for that task it says that it completed successfully.

I've tried running the task with a service AD account.  I added that account to the local security policy to allow to run as batch job.  I've also, just for testing, added that same account as a local administrator.

I've also tried running the task from my account which is a Domain Administrator.

Generanl Tab:
User account" domain\serviceaccount
Run whether user is logged on
Configure for: Windows Server 2008

Actions Tab:
Start a Program
Program/script: "D:\IT Department\Google Apps\AD Directory Sync\Google Apps Sync.bat"

Here is the bat file
@echo ==================================================
@echo ==         Google Apps Directory Sync           ==
@echo ==================================================

@echo ==================================================
@echo ==                Syncing Users                 ==
@echo ==================================================
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google Apps Directory Sync\sync-cmd.exe" -c "D:\IT Department\Google Apps\AD Directory Sync\Mindshare-GADS-users.xml"

@echo ==================================================
@echo ==                Syncing Groups                ==
@echo ==================================================
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google Apps Directory Sync\sync-cmd.exe" -c "D:\IT Department\Google Apps\AD Directory Sync\Mindshare-GADS-groups.xml"

@echo ==================================================
@echo ==                  Complete!!                  ==
@echo ==================================================

EXIT

Please check the following;

Log on as a batch job right needs to be assigned to the account that will be used for in the scheduled tasks.

either in local security policy or a gpo in your domain.

also check user access control

I have made sure that the service account is part of the Log on as a batch job in local security policy.  I have also made that user a local administrator to help negate any issues with permissions but it still returns the 0xff result.

deploy a gpo allowing your service account . or possibly your default domain policy is overridding your local security policy.
