Error codes: 2147943785 | 2147943785

1. Create a user to run the task Domain User or Local User.
2. Select 'Run whether user is logged on or not'
3. Select 'Do not store password. The task will only have access to local computer resources.' if applicable
4. Change the user to the user you created above, enter password.
5. Open Local Security Policy in Administrative Tools
6. Open: Security Settings -> Local Policies -> User Rights Assignment -> Log on as batch job
7. Add your user to this policy

If the add user or group button is greyed out you will have to do it on the domain controller.

Happy scheduling !
