Windows Server 2008 - Scheduled Task "Running" after Task Complete in Log

Hey Everyone,

We have kind of a quirky issue. There is a scheduled task that runs successfully and shows the task completed in the history tab. However, the scheduled task shows "running" until the screen is refreshed. Will this impact the next run of the task?

If so, any tips to get the task to go into the "ready" state without having to refresh?

Thanks,
Mike

What does the Task do ? does it run a script or a batch job ?
if so  are you sure it exits successfully  without pausing or waiting for user input ?

you can also configure in the setting of the Scheduled task, to end the task if it finds it running before running  a new Instance.

The scheduled task appears to be working as it should. Nothing more to do.  Thanks!
