I am attempting to make a script that schedules a few tasks.

According to the Microsoft "documentation," /s defaults to the current
system; so the following should work:

SCHTASKS /Create /U administrator /P p4ssw0rd  /RU "SYSTEM" /SC weekly
/D MON /TN CheckDisk /TR 1-chkdsk.bat /ST 01:00:00

However, I get the following error:
ERROR: Invalid syntax. Cannot specify user name without specifying
system name.

I then try the following:

SCHTASKS /Create /s %computername% /U administrator /P p4ssw0rd  /RU
"SYSTEM" /SC weekly /D MON /TN CheckDisk /TR 1-chkdsk.bat /ST 01:00:00

I get the following error:
ERROR: Passing the user credential on local connection

So, %computername% works fine, but I can not authenticate.  I also
tried to authenticate using my domain user and pass; which did not work
either.

This seems like it'd be a pretty common problem.

Can anyone assist?

Thanks,

Matt
