Scheduled task gpo error


I have a computer group policy that has a scheduled task preference in control panel settings.  

When I run gpudpate /force on a computer in the OU that receives the policy, I am getting an error:

C:\Users\edmin>gpupdate /force
Updating policy...

Computer Policy update has completed successfully.

The following warnings were encountered during computer policy processing:

Windows failed to apply the Group Policy Scheduled Tasks settings. Group Policy
Scheduled Tasks settings might have its own log file. Please click on the "More
information" link.
User Policy update has completed successfully.

For more detailed information, review the event log or run GPRESULT /H GPReport.
html from the command line to access information about Group Policy results.

Please advise.

I do not see any warning/error in my gpupdate /force now, and I am able to see the policy in my gpresult.

However, I do not see the scheduled task in the Task Scheduler Library on the targeted server.

I have seen several questions here on EE where scheduled tasks setup in GPO DO NOT show in the Task Scheduler Library but have not seen a cause or solution provided.
