We use the Administrator ID for our NT Backup Scheduled Tasks. After installing SP1 this User ID no longer is able to run Scheduled Tasks. We have also gone into Local Security Policy to give the Administrator authority to run "Scheduled Batch Files" as well as "Logon As A Service". What other changes have to be made to Grant the Administrator the ability to run Scheduled Tasks?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

IMHO, you should not be using the Administrator account to do anything except logging into the local console to perform maintenance tasks.

What you shold be doing is creating a local user account, adding that account into the Backup Operators group, and setting the scheduled task to run as that user. It’s more secure do to it that way.

Cheers

    You may have some sort of bug here because I can use the domain administrator account for any scheduled task on all of my 2k3 SP1 servers. Have you checked the default domain controllers policy? It may be modifying the local security policy.

    If you are running an Active Directory Domain, you need to enable this in Group Policy. It is not enabled by default.

    I have given the Administrator ID Permission thru the Policies. I went to both Domain Controller Security Policy and Domain Security Policy. What other Policy is there that would enable the Administrator to run Scheduled Tasks?

    Have you used the group policy results check in the GPMC or gpresult on the machine to see if there are any other policies.
