Task Scheduler and running process
We've got 2 tasks setup on one of our server to send data to one of our partners. Frequently when task runs it completes with a last result code of 0x0 (sucessful) but the process it calls (through a batch file) continues to run after the task ends. This then causes a problem when it runs again and it generates errors about the fact that the process is already running, checked task manager and indeed it is.
I've spoken to the vendor of the app (who is also the partner we are sending data to) and they have asked me to change the "stop the task if it runs for x hours x miniutes" to 15 minutes. I don't think the problem is related to the task scheduler but I'm wondering if anybody else has seen something like this happen just incase it is a windows bug of some sort.
