Log on as a batch job in Windows Server 2008


When creating a scheduled task on Windows Server 2008 I needed to assign a local user to run the task. For this to work the user must be given “Log on as a batch job” privileges.


1. Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy
2. Security Settings > Local Policies > User Rights Assignment
3. Find and double-click on the “Log on as a batch job” policy.
4. Add User or Group…
5. Add the user and click OK.
