Scheduled Task - Signon & Passwords


J

joe

I have a task which does something on another PC...It is
scheduled to run once a day.

I set it up to run under the owner logon. I do not use a
password. When the task run runs it errors off
stating '0x8007052f: Logon failure: user account
restriction'.

If I set it up under another user, RunBats, with a
password it runs fine.

Question is...how do I set this up under the owner account
without a password?

Thanks..
joe

The is a security policy that limits use of accounts with blank passwords
Run gpedit.msc
drill down to
Computer Configuration
Windows Settings
Security Settings
Local Policies
Security Options
Accounts: Limit local account use of blank passwords to console logon only
Disable it

Now does the task run?
