Is there some way to migrate or move existing Windows Task Scheduler jobs from a current Windows Server 2003 server to a Windows Server 2008 R2 server either through registry edits, configuration file restores, etc... so that one does not have to manually recreate the Tasks on the new server ?  There are dozens of tasks and it would be great of there was some way to automate the migration of those Tasks during the migration ...  TIA,

Sadly, the Scheduled Tasks handling has changed from W2003 to Vista/W2008, so I don't think you will be able to just transfer the tasks. You can help yourself with schtasks /query /s W2003-Machine /XML to get a complete XML listing of the tasks defined and their settings.
