  • Hi All,

    we Could see Unexpected behavior in task scheduler jobs on Windows server 2012 R2. we have multiple schedule task jobs configured on the server. Each job has more that 2 triggers on different times.

    Recently, few schedule task jobs behavior is weird and these running out of the trigger schedule time/sometimes runs twice on same time. Its not for all the jobs only few jobs behaving like that.

    Could you please suggest if any idea on this to troubleshoot further to fix the issue.

    Just try the following methods:

    1. Check the Scheduled Task is Enabled;
    2. Check the Scheduled Task’s Conditions;
    3. Select the Run with Highest Privileges Option;
    4. Verify the User Account;
    5. Check Last Result column;
    6. Make sure to select Run whether user is logged on or not option;
    7. Change task arguments;
    8. Make sure that your system is up to date;
    9. Run Fix My Task Scheduler.

  • Hi tnmff,

    Thanks for the inputs. we have 100 of the jobs scheduled on the server. But we are having issue with only 5 jobs. Each job has multiple triggers which it needs to run. But sometimes its ran twice on the trigger time or sometimes it runs out of the triggered schedule time.

    we need to fix this unexpected behavior of these tasks.
