Minor update to the Scheduled Task MP (Version

August 12, 2014 – link to latest update: https://rburri.wordpress.com/2014/08/12/scheduled-task…pack-1-2-0-500/ ‎


I have just uploaded an update to the Scheduled Task Management Pack. Under certain circumstances the discovery of Windows 2003 tasks failed. The new version fixes the bug in the discovery script.

I do recommend everyone who is currently using version to upgrade to Simply download the new version here and update the management pack by importing Custom.Windows.TaskScheduler.Windows2003.Monitoring.mp.

Many thanks to Aengus and Mark for making me aware of this bug.

  1. I noticed that after closing out an alert notice about a failed task that runs once a month and failed in it’s last run, I still get alerted about it that the task failed, which I guess is because the task status is still failed. Is there no way for it to know that once I closed the alert, although the status hasn’t changed, it shouldn’t generate a new alert?

    • Hi Reuvy
      The easiest way would be to put that particular scheduled task (not the computer) into maintenance mode until the task is scheduled to run again.
      The monitor itself is running on a schedule and will continue to complain as long as the return code of the last task execution doesn’t match 0 (or if you’ve overridden it what you have configured).
