How to enable the Windows Server Task Scheduler History recording


I have a Windows Server 2008 with scheduled tasks running, mainly .bat files calling PHP files. I have 2 users on the server, one Admin and the other is a Standard user.

I used the Standard User to clear the history log in the Task Scheduler History tab using the Event Viewer. Now it won't record any history anymore. All of the scheduled tasks no longer have history in the History tab. However, the Last Run Result returns 0x0 and the schedulers are working fine.
Please advise.

Best Solution

Step 1: Open an elevated Task Scheduler (ie. right-click on the Task Scheduler icon and choose Run as administrator)

Step 2: In the Actions pane (right pane, not the actions tab), click Enable All Tasks History

That's it. Not sure why this isn't on by default, but it isn't.
