I corrected a bug in the Scheduled Task management pack. The current version is It can be downloaded it from here: Original Post

Thanks to Pavel Rybakov for making me aware of the problem. Also to Mark Romano for suggesting adding enable/disable tasks.


  • Added tasks to enable/disable scheduled tasks
  • If the last scheduled task was removed from a server, the management pack failed to remove it from OpsMgr’s repository as well
  • Added a state view
  • Minor documentation updates

  1. Is there a possibility to add a task called Disable Scheduled Task like the run or end tasks that will actually run the following:

    /Change /DISABLE /tn “$Target/Property[Type=”Custom.Windows.ScheduledTask”]/TaskName$”

    I tried to create a task in my own custom MP but it is making me define the task in this way. Possibly due to the sealed management pack.
    /Change /DISABLE /tn “$Target/Property[Type=”CustomWindowsScheduledTaskMonitoring10145!Custom.Windows.ScheduledTask”]/TaskName$”

    but then I get an error that states that it can’t find that scheduled task when I try to run it against one of my agents.

  2. Thanks for the suggestion. I have updated the MP (V to include both an ‘Enable’ and ‘Disable’ task. Please refer to the documentation for some remarks regarding their usage.
