SOLVED Create scheduled task on a W10 with snapins


  • Hi,

    This is my configuration :

    Server :

    • Ubuntu 18.04
    • list itemFOG Server 1.5.7

    Clients :

    • Windows 10 20H2
    • Fog Client 0.11.16

    I’m trying to create scheduled tasks on Windows using Fog Snapins.

    Unfortunalely nothing worked.

    It tried these both scripts :

    Batch (shutdown.bat):

    @echo off
    IF EXIST "C:\Users\AB\Desktop\Extinction_Auto" (
    	echo "exist"
    	COPY /Y NUL C:\Users\AB\Desktop\done.txt
    	schtasks /create /sc daily /tn "MYTASK-DAILY-20PM" /TR "shutdown /p /s" /ST 20:00 > C:\Users\AB\Desktop\done.txt
    ) else (
    	COPY /Y NUL C:\Users\AB\Desktop\notdone.txt
    )
    

    This Powershell script also (shutdown.ps1):

    $trigger = New-ScheduledTaskTrigger -Daily -At 8pm
    $action = New-ScheduledTaskAction -Execute 'shutdown /p /s'
    Register-ScheduledTask -Trigger $trigger -Action $action -TaskPath "\" -TaskName "SHUT-DAILY-20PM" > C:\shutdown.txt
    

    None of both worked, using snapin dedicated templates or not.

    Both scripts works without any issue if I run them directly on a client.

    I found another solution which is to add them in the startup folder of a client, but then I have modify the registery of the client to allow autoadminlogin to apply them.
    But modyfiying the registery did not work either, even with a message telling “it’s done”, in fact it’s not. I tried to use PsExec to run commands but it did not worked with the snapins.

    I’ll take any help or suggestion to apply these scheduled task or a change to the registery.

    Many thank in advance.

    Proc.


  • @processor you can do bat with -> /ru “System”
    schtasks /create /sc daily /tn “MYTASK-DAILY-20PM” /TR “shutdown /p /s” /ST 20:00 /ru “System” > C:\Users\AB\Desktop\done.txt

    Thanks, that’s what I was searching for !

    I did not found in the forum how to make it as valid answer, any idea?

    The fog-client runs as SYSTEM user (as a service) and you cannot compare this to manually running scripts.
