Hi,

Please ignore my previous update as it works only for 2008 servers. Can you try this http://windowsitpro.com/systems-management/how-can-i-move-or-copy-scheduled-tasks-between-machines and see it works?

can't you connect to task scheduler on 2003 from 2012 server (connect to another computer) and export them in.

on another note, I am not sure whether you can import them directly into 2012.

Hi,

You can export the tasks from 2003 server (Right click and export as XML file) and import it on the 2012 server. Unfortunately you need to do it one by one.

can you be specific on where to do this?  I can copy them in control panel, scheduled tasks but don't see an export feature.

Hi,

Go to Start >> All Programs>> Accessories >> System Tools and click on Task Scheduler. You can also open it directly using taskschd.msc command in RUN or Start menu Search box. Once Task Scheduler is launched, select any desired task and click on "Export" link given in Actions pane at right-side of the window (or right click the task and export). So that it will export as XML file. The same procedure you can do for Import.

Hope this helps.
