CaliberRM and Task Scheduler



The task scheduler is greyed out when you try to change system account to "this account".


The directions in the CaliberRM manual say to go to Settings/Control Panel and double click on "Services" and then scroll down to find Task Scheduler. Once there, the instructions say to change Task Scheduler from running as a System Account (default) and click on the "This Account" radio button and then pick the username that Caliber was installed under and enter the appropriate password. The problem is that the "This Account" radio button is grayed out you are unable to change it from System Account to the appropriate account that will allow Versant to recognize the automated "vbackup" command.


In order to schedule the vbackup to run at a certain time, you must first create a .bat file with the vbackup command and then go to my computer/scheduled tasks and walk through the Task Schedule Wizard. The task must be scheduled to run as the caliber database owner. You can determine the database owner by typing: dblist at a command prompt. The creator is the database owner.
