I have a GPO that configure a Scheduled Task on all DCs for DSRM password change. Recently we deployed our first Windows 2012 R2 DC but unfortunately, on this new DC, the Scheduled Task deployed by GPO was not present. GPResult show that the GPO was applied correctly, but nothing was showing/created on “Task Scheduler”.
After some investigation, I discovered that the problem was the level of “Scheduled Task”; when creating a scheduled task via GPP (Group Policy Preferences) you should select:
NEW/Scheduled Task (At least Windows 7) instead of NEW/Scheduled Task.
As soon as I did that the GPP applied and created the task on the Windows 2012 R2.
