Windows 2008 r2 scheduled jobs not running

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?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16"?>
<Task version="1.2" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/windows/2004/02/mit/task">
    <Principal id="Author">
  <Actions Context="Author">

check on synchronize across time zones task scheduler
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?
Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

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
