Scheduled Task Password Lock

I just upgraded to the most current version of 12 and am trying to re-schedule all of my tasks, however I keep getting locked out of my network account with multiple attempted password fails.

I have double/triple checked that the password is correct for our network (it has not changed from the previous version), however I keep getting locked out.

Have any issues been report regarding this? If I am the only one, the I will work with network administration here.

Thanks,

Ed

I have the same exact problem. Have you figured out a solution?

Thanks!

Hey Matthew,

Toad provides a wrapper around the Windows Task API to help easily schedule Toad automation tasks, so all functions are passed straight to the Task Scheduler API. If you keep getting locked out, I suspect there might be a task that still has reference to an old password; in which case I’d recommend checking and/or updating your tasks in Windows Task Manager.

If you’re having a different issue, please feel free to let us know.

Hi John

Thanks for the response.

I do have several tasks in the windows task scheduler. Following your suggestion, I disabled the scheduled tasks that I created.

  1.    Will Toad still be able to access the scheduler API if Task Scheduler has active tasks that were not created by me using my credentials?  Can task scheduler be used at all along with Toad?
    
  2.   The old tasks, can I simply disable them or do I need to remove them from the schedule?
    
  3.   Can I run the Toad Applications from Task Scheduler?

Hi Matthew,

The Task Scheduler API is part of Windows and is available to any application that wishes to implement it. So yes, Toad can still access the API even if there are tasks that were not created by you. That should have no bearing on Toad being able to create and schedule new tasks.

For the old tasks, you can either disable them or remove them. It’s your choice. I would probably disable the old ones until new tasks are created. That way, you can compare them in Windows Task Manager to see if there are any differences between them.

Yes, you can run TOAD from the Task Scheduler. In fact, that’s precisely what the Automation Designer in Toad does. You first create an automation script. Then you schedule it, which creates a task in Window’s Task Manager. If you inspect that task, you’ll notice it is configured to launch Toad and execute the automation script you scheduled.

Thank you very much for your help.

I have tried several times using my credentials and I am still unable to schedule it from Toad. My first instinct is to learn how to build the scripts directly in Task Manager and then schedule them. Before I do that, I want to know if I really am unable to do it from toad’s automation designer.

I have double/triple/quadruple checked this with the my current password, and my previous passwords. It has never once worked.

Hey Matthew,

First off, I don’t think I asked this question previously: which version of Toad are you using?

One thing to check is to make sure you’re entering your password into both fields in the task wizard in Toad. The next step would be to try creating the same task (just to run TOAD itself) from the Windows Task Manager itself and see if you can register and run it. The error message you’re getting back is coming from your Windows Active Directory, and is just passed back through Toad. As a result, I suspect you’ll also have trouble from Windows Task Manager. If you do, there’s some setting on your AD that’s locking that account out.

Let me know what you find.

-John

First of all,

I didn’t not expect to receive this level of customer support. Thank you!

Automating / Scheduling these reports are going to save A LOT of time for our team.

I was able to sucesffuly run an instance of Toad from the Windows Task Scheduler.

You will need to dig up the most recent email you sent me, as I am responding to an earlier message.
