Hi all,

I'm new here so be gentle on me.

I've just installed 2003 Server to have a look around, and im trying to access 'Scheduled tasks' under my normal user name (member of 'users' group only). I keep getting 'Access Denied'.
I can open it ('Scheduled tasks') fine if i log in using the Admin account.

I've tried setting security permissions to sceduler via start menu.
Also had a look through local group policy (via mmc) to try making task scheduler available to other login accounts, but that doesnt seem to have helped (unless im looking in the wrong area).

How can i do this without putting my nomal account in the Administrators group??

Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction cause this is driving me nuts.

--Check the below link. It should answer your question.

As per the article, you must be a member of Administrators, Backup Operators and Server Operators. One solution I can see after reading the document is to put Account-A as a Member of Administrators group which gives Account-A the ability to enable say, Account-B, which is just a Normal Account which is a Member Of Users Group to Create or Modify Scheduled Tasks by using *cacls* command.

Hope it helps.

Thanks for the info. It did answer my question, but it looks like i'll have to find another way to achieve my end result.

I have some software which needs local admin access to run.
When logging in under my Normal account (member of 'Users' group), I want the software to run automaticaly using the Admin credentials, without having to choose "Run As" all the time.

Any ideas?

hi

i had the same problem as well. my users needed to be a local admin on each workstation on our network to be able to use some software applications. however, i made a discovery and i don't know if it would work for you but i guess it would be worth to try.

before setting up the application on each of the workstations, try to setup the accounts that would use that machine. Set your users as Power Users or whatever your preference would be. In this way, when the application is set up, it would detect that there is more than one user within the system and thus would adjust its application to run for all users define in the system

hope this helps...

--How about a simple batch program.
runas /user:administrator [path to program] and save it as CRida.bat. All you have to do is type CRida.bat and present the Password. Just an idea.

I dont really want to give my normal account any elevated privileges by adding them to a power users group.

At the moment i've got a shortcut to the software in the startup folder and i've changed its properties to always "Run As". So when the user logs in, it brings up the Run-As dialog with the admin user name already entered. All that needs to be done is to enter the password.

Creating a batch file would basically do the same thing.

Another idea is to try installing the program as a service. This should allow me to run only the app with elevated privileges.
I'll try this when i get home tonight. I'll let you guys know if it works.
