GPO Schedule Task doesn't work

Hi Experts,

I created a GPO to create a schedule task to restart IIS service everyday at 2:00am.

The schedule is set to run a script located at \\DOMAIN\NETLOGON and the script works fine if I run it manually, but the gpo simple doesn't create de task.

I tried with no "run as" option and with "nt authority\system", both with no luck.

Any ideas?

Thx!

Why you required GPO to create Schedule task ?
How many servers you want to restart IIS servcie ?
You can create schedule task per server basis and I think this is one time task

Why you required GPO to create Schedule task ? --> I want to
How many servers you want to restart IIS servcie ? --> Several

You can create schedule task per server basis and I think this is one time task --> This is not my question, thank you. None of your comments helped me somehow.

A fellow on Experts Exchange recently had a similar issue, though not using a GPO,  with a net stop batch file task.  The solution was to run as a system, not an admin.  To do so they used psexec (From Microsoft/Sysinternals):

psexec -s -i net stop <service>
