  • Problem with Scheduled Tasks and AD password changes

    Hi
    I am in need to scheduled several batch files that will do all kind of things on our network.
    Our company policy forces through AD a password change every 30 days and I can’t get a “backupadmin” account that will have a static password for such tasks as the above.

    Is it possible to some how auto update all my scheduled tasks ( about 20) with my new password when it changes and not having to do it manually for each one of them??

    Thanks!

      We use the SYSTEM account to run scheduled tasks. The account by default is local-only and is low-level and does not use a password. And this was in a government department so it must be safe!

        SYSTEM is not local-only. Computer's SYSTEM account is actually computer's account in AD and when in W2K Native mode (and up) it can be used to access network resources as long as ACL permits
