Windows – Task Scheduler Fails With Error Code 2147943785

This is usually due to a permissions issue.

It’s due to the user that is running the scheduled task not having the Log On As Batch Job assignment.

To fix it, have your Network Administrator go to Start Menu > Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy > Local Policies > User Rights Assignment > Log On As Batch Job as seen below:



If you are on a domain controller you need to do this on the GROUP POLICY


Don’t forget to update the policy using GPUPDATE /Force



But if this still does not work Sad smile


Make sure you use the SYSTEM Account to schedule the job.


Enjoy !
