Scheduled Task Run As Greyed Out

by -215 views

Hello,

Give thanks yous for posting in our forum.

According to the article MS14-025: Vulnerability in Group Policy Preferences could let peak of privilege: May thirteen, 2014, we can know:

1.These are used to run scheduled tasks in a specific security context. The ability to shop credentials for scheduled tasks to run as an arbitrary user when that user is not logged on is no longer available. The post-obit preferences are affected. (Be enlightened that on some platforms, “At to the lowest degree Windows 7” is replaced with “Windows Vista and later.”)
Estimator Configuration -> Control Panel Settings -> Scheduled Tasks -> New -> Scheduled Task (At least Windows 7)
Computer Configuration -> Command Panel Settings -> Scheduled Tasks -> New -> Immediate Task (At least Windows seven)
User Configuration -> Control Panel Settings -> Scheduled Tasks -> New -> Scheduled Task (At least Windows 7)
User Configuration -> Command Panel Settings -> Scheduled Tasks -> New -> Firsthand Task (At least Windows vii)

Important changes

Action: Create, Update, or Supplant
When y’all select the Run whether user is logged on or not selection, a dialog box no longer prompts the administrator for credentials.
The Do not shop password bank check box is disabled. By default, the box is also checked.

Workarounds

For the “Scheduled Chore (at least Windows seven)” and “Immediate Task (at to the lowest degree Windows seven)” tasks, administrators can use specific user accounts when the given user is logged on. Or, they tin only take access to local resource as that user. These tasks still can run in the context of the local service.

ii.This is the downwardly-level version of preferences used to run Scheduled Tasks in a specific security context. The ability to store credentials for scheduled tasks to run every bit an arbitrary user when that user is not logged on is no longer available. The following preferences are afflicted:
Computer Configuration -> Control Panel Settings -> Scheduled Tasks -> New -> Scheduled Task
Computer Configuration -> Control Panel Settings -> Scheduled Tasks -> New -> Immediate Task (Windows XP)
User Configuration -> Control Console Settings -> Scheduled Tasks -> New -> Scheduled Task
User Configuration -> Control Panel Settings -> Scheduled Tasks -> New -> Immediate Task (Windows XP)

Important changes

Action: Create, Update, or Supersede
The Run as cheque box is disabled. Therefore, the User Name, Password, and Ostend Password fields are all disabled.

Workarounds

For the “Scheduled Task” and “Firsthand Job (Windows XP)” items, scheduled tasks run by using the permissions that are currently available to the local service.

If nosotros really need to apply ” run as ” option, we can
uninstall
MS14-025.
