Running Active Directory in a 2012 Domain.  I have a script/batch programme that works if I run it "as administrator" if I run it as a scheduled task it fails as it needs to run "as administrator"
How to do I resolve this issue ? Is it a policy setting of some how set this on the file so when TASK SCHEDULAR runs it ..it runs.

Is this job running on a domain controller or a member server?  If its a domain controller, checking "run with highest privilege" might not work.  If thats the case, you can force taskmgr to invoke the job using "NT_AUTHORITY\System", which may work for you.
