When using following powershell script which creates a scheduled task to delete another scheduled task, I am confronted with an error (access denied: 0x80070005). When I manually define the task and execute it, it works fine.
# Prep task 2 for taskscheduler > delete task 1 after reboot if not deleted before $Action2 = New-ScheduledTaskAction -Execute "C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe" -Argument "/c schtasks /delete /tn 'Computer Forced Reboot'/f" $Trigger2 = New-ScheduledTaskTrigger -AtLogon $Settings2 = New-ScheduledTaskSettingsSet -DontStopIfGoingOnBatteries -Compatibility Win8 -RestartCount:10 -RestartInterval (New-TimeSpan -Minutes 1) $Principal2 = New-ScheduledTaskPrincipal -UserID "domain\$env:UserName" -LogonType Interactive # Register task 2 to Taskscheduler Register-ScheduledTask -TaskName "test test" -Action $Action2 -Trigger $Trigger2 -Settings $Settings2 -Principal $Principal2here
What am I doing wrong? Is this not possible (specific rights) trough powershell? Is there a workaround?
