Task Scheduler Exit Code 0x15?

Discussion in 'Windows Server' started by Jason Rosolowski, Sep 20, 2004.

  1. I've google'd this a bit, searched microsoft.com a bit, and can't find what
    this exit code means.

    Here's what I'm getting in the SchedLgU.txt....

    "Weekly Reboot.job" (shutdown.exe)
    Finished 9/18/2004 4:00:00 AM
    Result: The task completed with an exit code of (15).

    I have 2 other servers that run the same kind of job, and they are working

    Any ideas on this exit code and/or why my server isn't rebooting when it's
    supposed to?

  2. The Task Scheduler exit codes are set by the program invoked
    by the Task Scheduler, i.e. by shutdown.exe in your case. Add
    some simple diagnostics like so:

    @echo off
    echo %date% %time% Start of task > c:\test.log
    echo User=%UserName%, Path=%path% >> c:\test.log
    %SystemRoot%\system32\shutdown.exe /.. /.. /.. 1>>c:\test.log
    echo %date% %time% End of task >> c:\test.log

    Now examine the two log files and all will become clear!
