Task Scheduler needs admin-rights?

By elli65 ·
I'm trying to run a scheduled task with W2K Task Scheduler - it seems to need local admininstrator rights? If I try to run the task with normal user rights (or even with run as service, run as batch job rights) I get error Cannot start. Task Scheduler itself runs as system account. The user id for the task has all relevant rights for the directories as far as I know... What can be wrong?

This can happened if not programmed to log on as local system account.

To resolve this behavior change the Log On parameters from a User Account to the Local System Account

It does not say if you are running in a domain. We have created a domain account that we use on all scheduled tasks. On the scheduled task we use that user name. If you are not in a domain or this is a stand alone system, this can be setupas local user as well. Create an admin account that can is used on scheduled tasks only.
