    Scheduled task not working with Windows 2003 server

    I have recently installed Windows 2003 server into my PC. It worked fine in the beginning without any problems. Now, it is not possible to run my scheduled task on it. I tried to change the task for avoiding this. But, I got an error message saying “error 0x80090016: Keyset does not exist” at that time. What could be the reason behind this issue?

    Checking the Task Status


    Periodically check the status of scheduled tasks, because sometimes you may not be aware that a scheduled task did not run. Use the Detail view in the Scheduled Task window to see the following information about each task:
    Schedule - The schedule for the task.
    Next Run Time - The time and date that the task is next scheduled to run.
    Last Run Time - The time and date the task was last run.
    Status - The current status of the task.
    Last Result - Code that indicates the result of the last run.
    The Status column has the following status and description information:
    Blank - The task is not running, or it ran and was successful.
    Running - The task is currently running.
    Missed - One or more attempts to run this task was missed.
    Could not start - The most recent attempt to start the task did not work.
    The Last Result column displays a completion code. You can obtain a full explanation of all Windows completion codes from MSDN, but the common codes for scheduled tasks are:
    0x0: The operation completed successfully.
    0x1: An incorrect function was called or an unknown function was called.
    0xa: The environment is incorrect.

    Checking the Task Scheduler Service

    The Task Scheduler service must be running and properly configured to run tasks. If you had stopped scheduled tasks manually from the Scheduled Tasks window, the service stops and does not initialize the next time you start the computer. If the service is not configured to log on as the local system account, it may not start.

    To check the settings for the service:
    1. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Administrative Tools.
    2. Click Computer Management.
    3. Expand Services and Applications, and then click Services.
    4. Right-click the Task Scheduler service, and then click Properties.
    5. On the General tab, make sure that the startup type is set to automatic, and that the service status is Started. If the service is not running, click Start.
    6. On the Log On tab, make sure that the local system account is selected, and that the Allow service to interact with desktop check box has a check mark.
    7. Click OK, and then quit Computer Management.
