I have a brand new server running Windows server 2012 that I am attempting to set up backup email alerts. I have successfully set this up on other servers running 2008 and 2012. With this server, I cannot get it to trigger the task. I have created the task to watch for event ID 4 with the appropriate source on both the main event viewer and the Microsoft > Windows > backup> Operational logs. The task itself and the email script run properly if I right click and choose run. The Task scheduler simply shows the last time I chose to manually run as the last run date. No failure messages listed. The user account used to run the ask does have the log on as batch privilege. I have both created it from scratch, exported/imported from the working server, and tried creating the task via right click in the event viewer. Is there anything I am missing?
