Scheduled tasks in Windows Server 2016 don't run after being disabled then enabled

I am having a problem with the Task Scheduler on Windows Server 2016 not running repetitive tasks after they are disabled and re-enabled.

I create a task with a “Triggers->Start” of five minutes in the future and set the task to run every five minutes. The “Settings->Run task as soon as possible after scheduled start is missed” option is checked.

Everything works fine – task runs at the scheduled Start time and then runs every five minutes.

Disable the task and wait more than five minutes.

Enable the task, it does not run again.

The Next Run time continues to update every five minutes but the task does not run and the Last Run Time is never updated.

There are no entries in the Task History once the task is re-enabled and no events in the Windows event logs.

UPDATE: when the time rolls around the next day to the scheduled time the tasks starts running again but this is not the desired behavior as it caused a potentially long delay from when the task is re-enabled to when it starts running again.

Thanks,
Tim

UPDATE: I solved this problem.

The task was set to run every day and repeat either indefinately or daily. I changed it to Run Once and repeat indefinitely and it behaves.
