Scheduled Taks not showing when browsing to another PC on my network - Windows XP RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I browse to another PC on my domain using \\(computername)\ usually scheduled tasks as well as printers and faxes are displayed even if nothing is shared. 

    However I am not able to see Scheduled Tasks folder of other system in my network.

    I can see Printer and Faxes folder of other PC.

    Also when I browse my system using \\<MyCompName>, I can see scheduled tasks as well as printers and faxes

    Please help.

    P.S. File and printer sharing is enabled in Firewall exceptions.

    Regards,

  • Hi Maulik,

    As far as I am aware the scheduled tasks will only appear if you are logged in as an administrator of that workstation while browsing the share

    For example:

    If workstation is called "Workstation1" then the username must be workstation1\administrator and the password is the local admin password.

    You can set up a GPO to enforce your domain account as a local administrator which should correct the issue.

    FYI, you can also set scheduled tasks via GPO for remote machines

  • Hi MArtin,

    I have admin rights on remote machine. Since my account is part of a domain, I need to login as domain\username, not as workstation1\administrator. 

    what is the procedure to schedule a task via GPO for remote machines?
