I'm running a Windows 10 VM with a fairly recent installation of Cygwin (last month or so).
If I ssh into the box as the user "foo", I cannot create a scheduled task for the user:
foo@host $ schtasks /create /ru foo /rp fooPassword /sc HOURLY /tn foobar /tr 'echo foo'
ERROR: The user name or password is incorrect.
If on the otherhand I log in as the user "bar" and run exactly the same command, the scheduled task is created
bar@host $ schtasks /create /ru foo /rp fooPassword /sc HOURLY /tn foobar4 /tr 'echo foo'
SUCCESS: The scheduled task "foobar4" has successfully been created.
If I log into the VM with remote desktop as the user foo, I can create the task.
I have tried substituting /ru and /rp with /u and /p but get the error
ERROR: User credentials are not allowed on the local machine.
I am not sure what is going on and would love some help.
