Task Scheduler Error – specified logon session does not exist

Recently I got a task to move windows server 2003 to windows server 2008. Task is designed to execute .CMD file which internally calling .BAT file. Task was designed to run using service account with store password on windows server 2003.

First of all I was unable to import the task to windows server 2008 due to format issue so I have created new scheduled task and specify the location of .CMD file to execute when I configured the service account and try to store the password I got the below error.

An error has occurred for the task MyProfileTask. Error message: The following error was reported: A specified logon session does not exist. It may have already been terminated.

To resolve the above error follow the below steps.

Step 1: Go to run window and type SECPOL.msc and it will open Local Group Policy editor window

Step 2: Go to Security Settings –> Local Policies –> Security Options and disable the Network Access: Do not allow storage of passwords and credentials for network authentication option.
