I was a pilot for 15 years. Starting over and figured genome splicing wasn't hard enough, so I went into IT. Lucky enough to get a chance working the help desk and now I'm a SysAdmin/Network admin for a small company.

I have no idea what I'm doing and loving every minute of it.

comment Schtasks — what is wrong with the following command
Your initial suggestion was correct. I obviously mistyped something when I tried it. @Ryan, above, dragged me to the conclusion. Thank you.

comment Schtasks — what is wrong with the following command
Thank you. @Duncan, below, suggested the same earlier. I obviously missed something when I tried it after his suggestion. Not sure what I was missing. Apologies for the obtuseness.

comment Schtasks — what is wrong with the following command
@RyanRies I'm sorry. I am sure I am missing something. I still don't understand what you mean. Not sure how sending the commands to a file is relevant. I am not good with the scripting, so I must be missing something simple.

comment Schtasks — what is wrong with the following command
I tried as you suggested. I placed the cmdlets into a *.ps1 script and called that from the task. The results are the same.

comment Schtasks — what is wrong with the following command
@RyanRies not sure I understand what you mean by taking -Command {..} out. Did you just take out those items, or everything within them as well? If the latter, what does schtasks execute then? I am able to run the powershell cmdlets from the shell. Just not as a task. I probably don't understand what you're trying to say.
