An account is locked after creating/changing multiple Netwrix scheduled tasks in:

  • Windows 7
  • Windows Server 2008 R2
  • Windows Vista
  • Windows Server 2008

This issue occurs because the Task Scheduler service unnecessarily tries to register the task using a NULL password.

Once the account lockout threshold is reached, the user account is being locked.


This is a known issue related to the Task Scheduler service performance.
