    Task Scheduler

    Hello,

    Win 2k Server V 5.0 Build: 2195

    I have a scheduled task that runs every 2 hours for about 20 minutes. It has been working for quite a while up untill last week, now it says the task is running but nothing comes up on the screen and it never stops like it should after 20 minutes.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    JEK

    More info please. What is the task and what does it do? What message(s) do you get when the task is supposedely running? What, if any, software or hardware changes have you made to the system? What is supposed to come up on the screen?

    Any task. It says it's running, and the log file shows it's fine, but it just doesn't show up anywhere.

    We haven't changed anything on the server for a long time. I have been testing it with scheduled tasks to launch calc and notepad but they do the same thing.

    Rebooting did not help.

    Well I had tried to re-create the task and several others to no avail, but someone else re-created the task and it works now. I have no idea what the problem was, but it's fixed now.

    Thanks all,
    JEK

    Re: Task Scheduler

    I had the same issue. After rebuilding the task time after time: I finally gave up on the task scheduler and purchased a third party task scheduler. I could not find a solution on-line but others were having the same issue. I have not had any issues with the third party software. There are <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> task scheduler programs available if you choose to go that route.
