Windows Server 2008 Task Scheduler Error While Add/Disable a Task RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I try disable a existing task or add a new task, the following error appears.

    Transaction support within the specified file system resource manager is not started or was shutdown due to an error. <task-name>


    Then I read the MS Support, they recommends run the fsutil like this:

    fsutil resource setautoreset true c:\
    

    But when I try run this command I get the following error message:

    Error: The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.


    Finally when I try to check disk (chkdsk command), the system says:

    1304 large file records processed. File record segment 119470 is an orphan. Errors found. CHKDSK cannot continue in read-only mode.


    I couldn't disable the task, briefly. How can I fix this task scheduler (or what else) error?

  • Could be task corruption. Might try export all tasks to XML, delete them all from GUI, delete all files in C:\Windows\Tasks, reboot, try to add a new task manually, if all is good, then import tasks one at a time and check results.

    Might run;

    chkdsk /f

    then it should prompt to run at next startup.

  • I tried but it didn't fix the main problem (task scheduler). I think we will create an SR to MS for this problem. I'll update this topic.

  • Thanks, but we remove the disk the vm and plugged that to another vm and chkdsk utility was successful. There is no problem for now.
