cron job stops and requires logoff and logon in windows server

Dear Experts
Have scheduled cron job in windows server 2012R2 this was working as expected but now days very often cron job stops has become unstable and this requires user logoff and login and during that time we find the following log
event 7036, service control manager
The Smart Card Device Enumeration Service service entered the stopped state
Event 7002 winlogon
User Logoff Notification for Customer Experience improvement program
Can you please suggest where the issue would be and what to be done, please let us know if the can the standard user perform the cron job OR it requires administrator privileges, and if the standard user to schedule and execute the cron job should he be part of any system group please suggest.  thanks in advance.

"cron jobs" are a Unix/Linux affair, you are talking about Scheduled Tasks ;-).

If relogin does help, there cannot be a permission issue. The Smart Card device error seems to be unrelated to your issue - as long as you do not use smart cards, you can ignore that.

We cannot recommend anything, as we do not have any details about what the task does. It is important to know whether the task as such isn't going to be started anymore, or the task is running but failing in execution. The history of the task shoupd tell you that.

thanks for the reply, I understood from the user the scheduler stops to execute the task when same user credentials used for remote login through RDC, whenever the same user account credentials are used on which the scheduler is configured then the scheduler stops working and this requires logon on the local system after the remote logon user logs out.  Hence have suggested them to create the dedicated user account and configure the scheduler to run the tasks and use separate user account for the remote login session, please suggest would this solve the issue, thanks in advance.

I've not t heard yet of such an issue, but yes, I guess it would help to change the account. Though from your description it might be essential that the  task user is logged in locally?!
