A specified logon session does not exist

SyncBackFree is the freeware version of SyncBack. It is *not* an evaluation version of SyncBackPro/SE/Lite.

A specified logon session does not exist

Post by poguec » Thu Aug 09, 2018 9:05 pm

Using Windows 10 64bit in our office each time I try to create a schedule and it asks for my password when it tries to save I get the message "A specified logon session does not exist. It may already have been terminated". I read something about a local policy setting to change but that policy is enforced by corporate and can not be changed. I'm unable to create a schedule that runs. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

If your corporate policy does not permit the storage of account passwords, then AFAIK in that case the only option left is to set up a Schedule(d Task) set to 'Run only when user is logged on', which might be useless for your needs (to run overnight, say) and/or insecure (leaving machine logged in while unattended, though user could Lock it - if he remembers...)

If 'Run only when user is logged on' would suffice for your needs, you should be able to simply click Cancel to the initial password prompt and the Schedule(d Task) will open with the 'Run only when user is logged on' option preselected, ready to set date & time. Note that you cannot switch that option off (and revert to 'whether logged on or not') without being prompted for the password again #-o before that Schedule dialog will close. The result will be an error message and a Task that fails because 'no password' (or words to that effect, IIRC)

Thank you for the reply. Let me ask this then, when I check the Task Scheduler I can see the command used to run the task. What I've noticed if I try to make my own task and use the SYSTEM login so I don't have password issues it never runs. It's almost like there is some link needed between the program and Task Scheduler. Is there another way to run the command below that will actually run?

C:\Program Files (x86)\2BrightSparks\SyncBackFree\SyncBackFree.exe -m "Ircona"
