    Scheduled Task error

    onemanop
      I have a simple CFM file as a scheduled task.

      1) The task does not run on it's own according to the interval time.

      2) If I manually click on the "Run Scheduled Task" icon in the CF admin page then it runs successfully. However, I always get a "Connection Failure" in the output file.

      Questions:

      1) Why isn't it running?

      2) Why does it output "Connection Failure" every time I run it manually?

          Is the task located on the server, or is it on another share on the network?

          Does CF have the appropriate file permissions to execute the task? Remember, CF will use the username and password account used to start ColdFusion. If that username does not have permissions for the file in question, it will be denied access.
