Task Scheduler rights issues ?

Hi

I have the following problem and hope this is the right
newsgroup to send to.

THE PROBLEM :
I cannot set a different account to run a task while
logged in as a domain user.

The server is server2003 and the workstation is WinXP Pro.

I have made sure all passwords and logins are correct for
the following tests.

I am logged in as a domain user




1. Set the task using another local user : Does not work

I get this error :

An error occured while attempting to set task account
information.
the specific error is :
0x80070005 : Access Denied
You do not have permission to peform the requested
operation

2. Set the task using local admin : Does not work

I get this error :

An error occured while attempting to set task account
information.
the specific error is :
0x80070005 : Access Denied
You do not have permission to peform the requested
operation

3. Set the task using the logged domain user - works

4. Set the task using a domain admin - does not work

I get this error :

An error occured while attempting to set task account
information.
the specific error is :
0x80041310: Unable to etsablish existene of the account
specified.
Ensure the account name specified is valid


Is this the Way it is supposed to work ? If so how do i
set a different account to run a task while logged in as
a domain user ?

Thnaks in advance

The Task Scheduler runs as a service. Here's one way to set the credentials that the Task Scheduler service runs under:

Goto Start \ Administrative Tools \ Services.

Dubba click the Task Scheduler service \ then select the Log On tab.

Change Log on as from Local System Account to This Account and supply the userid and password that you want the service to run under.

Also when you use a domain account you need to supply the domain name with the userid in this format <domainname>\<userid>. Hope that helps.
