Schedule task fails with Error Value: 2147943140

Post by marky_bill »

I recently upgrade from 5.1.558 to 5.1.596 and now my scheduled backup tasks fail with above error value. Have reverted back to previous version and it is fine again.

Any Ideas what the problem is?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

What version of Windows do you have?
Is the scheduled task created to run under a normal local user? or is a domain user account.

Its Windows Server 2012,
It runs under a domain user account which is logged on.

Hope that helps

Hi,

Can you run any other task (manually created in Task Scheduler) on that computer using the same user account?

Yes other tasks work, even the fbackup tasks worked when 5.1.558 was installed, its only since 5.1.596 got installed it was a problem, I have had to return to 5.1.558 and everything works fine.

Any update on this please?

Hi,

Please compare two tasks: one that works and one that does not work. What is the difference?

None of the FBackup tasks work since installing the newer version, they haven't been changed. Other tasks that do not use FBackup still work fine. I don't have a task for FBackup that works. Clearly something in 5.1.596 is causing the issue. Going back to the previous version all the FBackup tasks then work.

Managed to get this working. Having reinstalled the latest version I created a new backup job and associated task. I then ran the task from the task scheduler and it worked fine. I then looked at what the task was running. It was bSchedStarter.exe. I looked at the old tasks that had stopped working and they were running bBackup.exe. So, from within FBackup and delete all the tasks for the jobs and recreated them so they are now using bSchedStarter.exe and so far touch wood they are running as expect.
Just thought this might help other users.
