Windows Server 2019: user defined data collector sets do not start at scheduled time

Q: Windows Server 2019: user defined data collector sets do not start at scheduled time

I've already asked the
question regarding auto-starting the data collector sets and have posted MS's answer - now it seems the issue can be much broader: I failed to make my user defined data collector sets start according to their schedules, for example:
I created a test data collector set (with several CPU counters), saved it as a template and tested it on Windows Server 2008R2 and Windows Server 2019:


I've tested various user defined data collector sets on all my Windows Server 2019 computers - physical and virtual, domain and non-domain joined, the result is always the same - the data collector sets just don't start and the following event(s) get registered
in the Diagnosis-PLA log:

Here's the codes' description -

No issues arise when starting the data collector sets manually.
Can anyone tell me if it works on your computers with Windows Server 2019?

Preferred Solution: Windows Server 2019: user defined data collector sets do not start at scheduled time

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


We have enable the counters for week to do the analysis of the Memory and CPU Utilization in our 2003 Server.
Report got generated with 14MB file , however when we tried looking for the report we unable to find any collector information showing up on it and when we tried to pull the report with PAL tool found no output , could you please let us know any other action
need to be taken care before we enable data collector set in server 2003  32bit

I have placed a couple of user defined data collector sets on my machine to monitor remotely a number of other servers.
I left those data sets running for a round a month and I want to stop them now.
Every time I select any of those data sets and click the stop button, the stop button grays out, leave it for a considerable time, then refresh ... but nothing changed. the data set stays in running status.
I tried this with all the remote monitoring data sets, but non of them stopped.
The size of the data set is increasing uncontrollably and I have to stop them, but I don't want to delete what has been collected ...... How can I do that?

I created a user defined Data Collector in PerfMon (running as administrator) based on this post:


The Data Collector is listed under the the Data Collection Sets | User Defined | Server Manager Performance Monitor | My Data Collector.

When I right click on Server Manager Performance Monitor then choose 'Start' I get the following window:
[Window Title]
Performance Monitor
[Main Instruction]
When attempting to start the Data Collector Set the following system error occurred:
The operator or administrator has refused the request.

My user account is in the local Administrator group as is Domain Admins which I'm a member. I also added my user account to the local perfmon groups.

I also made sure the local Administrators group is in 'Log on as a batch job' in User Rights Assignment. As recommended on some other troubleshooting steps. 

Still not working, any other troubleshooting ideas? Most of what I've found relates to Task Scheduling and I'm able to create in there without issue.

Hi folks,

We need to run a Data Collector Set, to continuously monitor performance of some machines. We created the DCS from a Basic template, configured and started ok.?
However, few hours later the DCS stops, and we get "Access Denied" error when we try to re-start it.?
Deleting the DCS and re-creating it resolves the issue for few hours, but then again the DCS stops few hours later with "Access Denied" error.?
We can not figure out what is causing it. ?
The issue happens to all our Windows boxes, old and new, running different OS, from Windows Server 2008 R2 to Windows Server 2016.?
Any ideas?

I'm having an issue customizing the Start Page registry key in Windows Server 2019 (this method works fine in 2016) I would load C:\Users\Default\NTUSER.DAT and add \Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Start Page REG_SZ "Company specific URL"
and when a new user logs in they'd get the "Company specific URL" but with Windows Server 2019 this isn't working.
I have also tried adding "First Home Page" and "Default_Page_URL" and it doesn't make a difference, it seems some sort of mini setup is configuring the registry keys and ignoring or overwriting what I entered into NTUSER.DAT from the
Default user profile.
I've also got IE Enhanced Security Configuration disabled for Admins and Users along with the following other registry keys set that all are working fine.
[HKEY_USERS\DefaultUser\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
"Friendly http errors"="no"

[HKEY_USERS\DefaultUser\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]

[HKEY_USERS\DefaultUser\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]

Wondering if anyone has found a workaround or missing key that also needs to be set, thanks.

Sorry in advance if this is not in the best discussion space.

Windows has started chirping at me randomly, don't know why, sort of two guitar thumps like (uh-oh - my interpretation.) Trying to figure out the racket, I see there are events being generated (possibly unrelated, but the only thing showing as a problem right now) that says:

Some indication "out there" suggests this might be a problem related to too many folders, but without explanation. Suggestions?

Hello there everyone, 
I encountered a serious issue after installing the latest Monthly Rollup from June 2019 on our Windows 7 clients. 
Apparently, we can no longer add nor edit already existing scheduled tasks that have been created with AT commands. However, the already existing scheduled tasks appear to execute with no problem, so the functionality is still given. 
I double- and even triple checked it through uninstalling the coresponding KB article. Thereafter, I still wasn't able to add new AT Scheduled Tasks through GUI, but it worked through our scripts and regular cmd-use without any problems. Plus, the pre-existing
AT-jobs continued to work on, regardless of the KB-Article KB-4503292 being installed or uninstalled on the systems. When trying to add a new AT-job into scheduled task, the Scheduled Task Manager GUI sends a message of an unexpected knot. The job does
not appear in the GUI, either. It's merely represented with the Error message. Deleting it through CMD is still possible, which clears the Scheduled Task Manager off of the Error Message. 
Since I wasn't able to find anything conclusive online regarding this issue, I am seriously hoping someone here has any idea about this occurance. I am well aware AT is rather old and got sort of replaced through other means and commands (such as schtasks).
Since AT wasn't even an option anymore to select from the GUI for quite some time now, I can only assume at this point this is some... Read more

I am continually getting the error "Run Time error 1004: Application defined or object defined error," each time a user clicks one of the cells within this excel file. It comes up as apparently a visual basic error. I've search other sites and unfortunately do not know enough about macros or excel formulas to know what to do next, so I thought I would post about it here. One user apparently has no trouble opening it while every other user has the same issue. Here is the debug code:

Private Sub Worksheet_Deactivate()

End Sub

Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
Cells.Interior.ColorIndex = -4142
Target.EntireRow.Interior.ColorIndex = 8
Target.EntireColumn.Interior.ColorIndex = 8
End Sub

The "Cells.Interior.ColorIndex = -4142" portion is highlighted in yellow, so I assume that's where the error is. From there, I'm not sure what to do to change it. Please let me know as soon as possible what direction I should take.

To be honest...I would assume that the file is corrupt and try to replace it. All seemingly meaningful links on this error involve VBA coding and things that can go wrong with it...way overhead my head and out of my interest arena .

If it truly is a coding error (as seems implied), I would take it to the originator of that file, since it throws an error.

Very strange that e pluribus unum...manages to use it without problems .

and try to start using the same command  (logman start/stop SQL ) the following error arises:

The same error arises when starting SQL in GUI.

It means no data collector sets can be started after being imported by

Microsoft's Windows Server team released a preview of the next Windows Server product, Windows Server 2019, yesterday to the public.

Windows Server 2019 Preview is available for any participant of the Windows Insider program but the post on Microsoft's Windows Server website is unfortunately a bit vague when it comes to actual downloads of the preview version of Windows Server.

The very first thing you need to do is register an organization account or a personal account; Registering in this case means that you join the Windows Insider Program with the account so that you may download and use Insider Builds.

Once you have done that head over to the Windows Insider Preview Server download page and select "Windows Server vNext LTSC PReview" under available downloads. You can download localized versions of the Server 2019 Preview ISO and have 24 hours to download the 4.2 Gigabyte ISO image from Microsoft.

I have been trying to get a windows application that I have developed to run as a scheduled task. I am running Win XP Pro SP2.

This works perfectly when the computer is up and running but it is intended to work at night when the computer is on standby. I have checked the " Wake the computer to run this task" box.

If I schedule the task to being while it is on standby I find that it will only actually start when I log back in again in the morning.

If I test using a console application then it will indeed work while in standby.

What I have as the task is a one line .bat file contaning the program path and name followed by some command line arguments which enable the automatic running then termination of the windows application (as opposed to nomal interactive windows actions). Could it be something to do with this aspect that it requires the computer to out of standby mode to begin ?

I would be grateful for any advice to find a solution to this. I will be pleased to supply any furthe information if needed.

Many thanks

I have been trying to figure out how to collect performance data from one of my machines for a  week using PerMon.
Is it even possible? can I just let it run for a week with the set counters (processor, physical disk, Network adapter, Memory, etc.) and write to one big file which I can later on analyze?
what are the steps to configure this if it is possible?

Ai Suite II always loads BUT "on screen" it is messy during loading because a seemingly AI Suite bar sized white artefact appears top left of screen for 10- 20 seconds before disappearing when the AI suite icon appears in the notification tray. Sometimes a white square also appears temporarily.

I have noted that if I exit Ai Suite II and reload via the Asus AI suite supplied Shortcut I never get these artefacts AND the suite loads instantaneously (I note however Asus uses AI Suite II.exe via the shortcut

I have some processes that I need to stop and restart each morning. In order to do this, I've created 2 scheduled tasks inside Task Scheduler:

1.) Stop Foobar (Both Environments) - Triggers @ 6:45 AM Every Day
2.) Start Foobar (Both Environments) - Triggers @ 6:48 AM Every Day

Both tasks above make use of a respective *.BAT file to shut down and restart a task agent service. Unfortunately, the tasks have been bombing with "(0x5)" each morning. I'm not sure why, but I suspect it has something to do with the following code associated with each *.BAT file:

stop.bat -

sc stop Foobar_f52d190a-0e84-4b3a-ab03-xsfc6450b845
timeout 10
sc stop Foobar_935feeac-b874-4cca-b8eb-xsf55881ffb2
start.bat -

sc start Foobar_f52d190a-0e84-4b3a-ab03-xsfc6450b845
timeout 10
sc start Foobar_935feeac-b874-4cca-b8eb-xsf55881ffb2
From what I understand of 0x5 codes, it's a "universal access denied" indicator. Is this true? If so, that would imply then that the service account responsible for executing the batch files isn't being permitted execution rights, right? Odd, because I've provided my username / password for the tasks to execute whether the user is logged on or not. From what I can see, it's storing the password, too... So what gives?

Any insight is appreciated. And I added the "timeout 10" in order to give the tasks some buffer between each task. Maybe it needs more? I dunno...

A:Scheduled Task / Batch Code on Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

Turns out that the code works... The reason that I kept receiving the 0x5 result is due to the Scheduled Tasks not being executed with "highest privileges". Once this was set, everything ran like a charm.

I was wondering if anybody could tell me how to use the User Defined function in Paint Shop Pro 7 or could tell me a website where it is explained. Like what are the different Filter Matrix boxs, and what do the numerical values define, and what do division and bias values define?

Thanks in advance for the help

In ?Windows Update? I have selected the recommended option of ?install updates automatically? and left the timing at the default of ?Every day at 3:AM.? I typically shut down my computer every night, so it is not running at 3AM. After my computer is turned on will I still get the Windows Update downloads? Will they install automatically at some point?
I am running Vista Home Premium 64bit on a Dell XPS 435MT.

A:Must computer be turned on at scheduled time for Windows Update to download updates?

Yes your computer needs to be turned on. If it's not, and you don't update manually, it will simply wait until you are powered on at 3am. And, if you are never powered on at 3am, you will never update.

The server where the domain was damaged.
I reinstalled windows server 2012 r2. And again add domain with the same name.
Now users on Windows 7 computers can't login to computers - bad password message.
When I turn off the server, users can log in to Windows 7.
When I add a user to a workgroup and again add to a domain, a new profile is created in Windows 7. 
Programs are removed, there is no wallpaper, no icons, no files. 
User profile are created in the location C:\Users like username.domain_name.001, username.domain_name.002
How to add the domain again and save the settings, programs?
