Server 2K3 R2 scheduler
Any one had any scheduled events not starting or apparently starting and not doing anything until the scheduled time limit was reached.
The reason I'm asking is my 2K3 R2 server backups are run by a scheduled task and they have stopped running. When I look at the logs the only entry (and sometimes not even this) is in the scheduled event log which says starting. When I log on the server next day the task is shown as running but nothing is happening.
When I set the same taskup under a different name it seems to work but the last one did for a few days.
BTW the actual task is a VBScript which runs the backups if this has any bearing on the problem.
Are you sure that the problem is not with the Backup program rather than with task scheduler?
if its vbs script it wont use a program

Just looked this morning and the task is running in the scheduler but that is far as it gets.
try making a batch file to create a txt file and see if that works.
What other tasks do you ave running?
