Jobs error when running as specific users

Created: 05 Apr 2011 | 5 comments

We're currently testing Notification Server 7.1. When trying to push jobs or tasks to clients we've run into an issue only when choosing a username/password for the task/job to run us. So far in testing any job created that runs as the currently logged in user works fine. When changing a script to run as a specific domain user (even if it's the same user that is currently logged into the machine) we get the following error 1073741502. When running a software install task as a specific domain user we get the error 2147024894. I've tried domain\username and user@domain. I've also tried multiple domain accounts on multiple computers with the same results. Has anyone run into this issue?

or rather, if you run with the agent credentials?

It looks like running a script that installs a piece of software will work with the agent, however if I run the package delivery task to install the same piece of software I still get the same error as before. 2147024894

In Windows 7? if yes, disable uac and try again

I have this same problem with 7.0.8800! Once my agents updated all my tasks stopped working that ran with a specific user account. System creds and current logged on user options work though.

Hi Thomas, this a big problem also for our customers.

  • Windows 7 with UAC, not able to run any script using a defined user login, works using
    Symantec Management Agent credentials
    currently logged in user
  • It works if deactivating the UAC: This workaround is not acceptable.

Does any body already open a Symantec Mysupport Case this issue, and get any "ID" to follow this case ?

If not, we will create one, and publish in there !

I do not find any KB this problem.

Can you publish an internal Symantec following tag if any?
