    Question

  • Is there a way to push a scheduled task from Server 2008 R2 Group Policy to windows 10 machines on the same network?

    If there is please advise me on how to do so.

    Thank you in advanced.

  • Hi,

    Since "At least Windows 7" is replaced with "Windows Vista and later." I think it should also work for Windows 10.

    Besides, you may check what scheduled task you want to run on windows10. Two of the actions that were formerly available in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 have been deprecated in Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 and later. If you attempt to apply either the Send an email or the Display a message preference item, nothing will happen.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post.

    You just need to choose Scheduled Task (At least Windows 7) and it should work for Windows 10 machines.

    For computers that are running Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, or Windows XP, Scheduled Task preference items let you create, replace, update, and delete scheduled tasks and their associated properties.

    For computers that are running Windows Server 2012 or Windows 8 and later, Scheduled Task (At least Windows 7) preference items let you create, replace, update, and delete tasks and their associated properties.

    Best Regards,

  • Thanks for the reply Alvin. My problem is that my 2 DC's are Server 2008 R2, the only options it gives me are:

    • Schedule Task
    • Immediate Task (windows XP)
    • Immediate Task (At least Windows Vista and later)
    • Immediate Task (At least Windows Vista and later)

    Will "Immediate Task (At least Windows Vista and later)" work for Windows 10 as well?

    If it will work, where do I check on the client computer to see if the Task had been pushed from the Domain Controller?

    -Thanks again.
