Using Task Scheduler to schedule a vbs script

Discussion in 'Scripting' started by Mike-Admin-NJ, Jun 6, 2005.

  1. When I launch my script manually, it runs fine. When I use task scheduler,
    it does not run! I am launching it on a Windows 2003 server. Has anyone
    else had this problem and how did you correct it? I've spent hours look at
    Microsofts Website for a solution to no avail any suggestions! Thanx Mike

  2. Depends on what the script is attempting to do. Keep in mind that when you
    run it manually, it is operating in the security context of the account you
    are logged in to. When you schedule a job, that job runs under some other
    security context, and may not, for example, have access to your network.
