Scheduled Task not updating in existing task throught GPO

    Question

  • Hello,

    We are using Windows Server 2012 R2 as Domain Controller and Windows 8.1 Client machine.

    And deployed one task scheduled through Group Policy and its successfully deployed on client machine but the problem is when we update or change some settings in particular scheduled task from GPO its not updating in existing scheduled task but its creating new one and when I am updating the task Action set as in Update mode.

    Also checked Sysvol folder in client and server machine there is only shows updated ScheduledTasks.xml file that means everything is up to date and syncing properly.

    So please help me to find out why schedule task not updating in existing task and creating duplicate.

    Help would be appreciated..

    Thanks,

    Ankit Moradiya

  • Hi Ankit,
    Please have a try to use Replace mode in the group policy preference and see if it works.
    And for me, I would create a new GPO with preference to delete old task firstly and use another GPO to deploy the task with changed settings

  • Hello Wendy,

    My problem is solved. there two task scheduled existing with same name but the only difference between is one have selected "Run task as soon as possible after a scheduled start a missed" and another one was unchecked. So i have created two delete task in GPO with same name and different checkbox settings. This method works.

    Appreciated your help.

    Thanks,
