Scheduled Tasks - multiple schedules don't work

Scheduled Tasks - multiple schedules don't work

Post by QWRveX » Wed, 02 Jan 2008 04:51:02


I've got a scheduled task configured to run every 10 minutes every day.
However, it only runs 2 or three times a day. When it runs, it completes
successfully, I just can't get it to run every 10 minutes. Should I be using
the command line for something like this? I did the original configuration
through the GUI.

******Advanced Scheule Options ******
Repeat Task (checked)
Every: 10 minutes
Duration: 11 Minutes
If taks is still running, stop it at this time (Checked)
******Advanced Scheule Options ******

Thanks in advance.

Doesn't make much difference as far as GUI vs CLI. Are there any
related errors or warnings in the event logs? Is it possible it's a
problem with the task? e.g. If the application that is run in the task
doesn't work unless some other conditions are met, maybe those other
conditions aren't being met.

Scheduled Tasks - multiple schedules don't work

The duration is the number of hours in the day during which
the tasks should run. If you want to run your tasks once every
10 minutes, starting at midnight, then you must set the
duration to 24 hours, not 11 minutes. If you want them to
run once every 10 minutes, starting at 7am and ending at
7pm then you must set the duration to 12 hours.
