Windows Task Scheduler Fails With Error Code 2147943785



I’ve configured the Windows Task Scheduler on my Server to run a PowerShell Script. However, the Windows Task Scheduler Fails to run with error code 2147943785. Below the error detail that I got:

Task Scheduler Error


The user that is configured to run the task scheduler must have “Log on as a batch job” rights on the computer. You can configure this on the local security policy of the computer or using GPO. The “Log on as a batch job” policy location is under

Security Setting -> Local Policies -> User Rights Assignment -> Log On As Batch Job

Log On As a Batch Job

Don’t forget to update the policy using GPUPDATE /Force if you set this policy on GPO.
