Hello all -

I have a scheduled job that runs when I'm logged onto the machine, doesn't run when I'm not.  

I exported the job so you can see it below.  Any ideas?

I had this problem recently with server 2003 and I expect the answer may the same

run as admin >secpol.msc
Security Settings > Local Policies > user Rights assignment > Log on as a batch Job
 and then make sure the user the task runs under is added

(or maybe not)

@SIDFISHES - I have the user as "SYSTEM".  Isn't system an admin?  That would take care of the batch job issue??

@takecoffe - Why?

I would think so however I'm no guru on this stuff.  

On my server 08 r2 instance, there is no entry in log on as batch for system - you need to add it....

Probably worth a try
