Does anyone know what "Last Result" code 0xff means in Windows Task Scheduler? My Cacti poller job has been displaying this periodically and has stopped generating graphs for no apparent reason.

I have to reboot the server (Win2k3 Ent R2 SP2) and manually kick the job off to get it to run again. Normal code is 0x0.

Any ideas what this code means? Haven't been able to find any list of Task Scheduler result codes on Google... :x

You only normally get this error message when the task fails, and the account being used is NTAUTHORITY\SYSTEM - odd.

Have you tried deleting and recreating the scheduled task ?

Looking around on Google doesn't really give any solid answer. My guess would be either the scheduled task is taking longer than 5 min, where its terminating itself and starting up a new one OR the poller is terminating itself in some improper manor.

Looked in your scheduled task log for more info for when it does exit with 0xff?
