PowerShell Task Scheduler Not Working

PowerShell Task Scheduler Not Working

Hello Can anyone point out what is wrong with my powershell not executed from Task Scheduler.
Though manual execution works. Here is the content of the script:

However, in Task Scheduler it does not work even though the history says successful

below is the General Tab in Scheduler

below is the trigger

below is the action

Condition. Note this was default.



RE: PowerShell Task Scheduler Not Working

See if this helps:

At the part where it suggests adding the argument "-ExecutionPolicy Bypass", you may actually need more than that. I use "-nologo -executionpolicy bypass -windowstyle hidden -file" when I execute it from a command line, which looks something like:

    C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe -nologo -executionpolicy bypass -windowstyle hidden -file "C:\Folder\MyScript.ps1"

The parameter "-windowstyle hidden" is completely optional, especially if you're running it on a server.

Confirm cdogg suggestion though we've "got away" with just powershell.exe -executionpolicy bypass -file "j:.........\script.ps1" Script parameters can also be passed in via the Add Arguments option.
Also make sure any account passwords are correct as it doesnt seem to advise if incorrect
