I have several scheduled tasks which I canceled, but which seem to continue to be active even though the task status indicates it's not. The devices in the "Active" category have actually GROWN in number since I hit the "Cancel" option and with one of the cancelled tasks, I tried hitting "Cancel" repeatedly rather than just once. This actually seemed at first to be producing the desired result of a fully stopped scheduled task, but as the number of Actives approached zero, the number then started going back up again! Ultimately, the "Cancel" option disappeared. I can only now "Start" the cancelled tasks even though the one I just mentioned now says ithas 28 "Active" devices.
In one discussion thread here, someone suggested stopping/restarting the LANDesk Scheduler service and another an IISReset. Well, I did both! Bounced the LANDeskScheduler service AND did an IISReset.
Result? N/G. Cancelled tasks are still active. This is getting to be like driving a car where the steering wheel is "sort of a suggestion" for which direction to go in. One frustrated poster from 2009 literally unplugged his core server until he had a resolution (which seemed to be the actions I just took). I really don't want to go that far if I can avoid it. Hopefully, someone here has an answer.
