windows scheduler - tasks are running at the same time despite different time settings

MG 1 Reputation point

Windows server 2019 Standard is running on VMware. I have the following issue with windows scheduler. I need to trigger two tasks. One task should be triggered at 00:55 AM (trigger a BAT file) and the next task should be triggered at 01:10 (BAT file as well). When I do not have the option Run task as soon as possible after a scheduled task is missed the tasks don't get triggered and I get an error 153 with message Missed task start rejected in the history tab. Once I check this option for both tasks, both of the task get triggered at the same time at 01:34:11 and the second task at 01:34:12. I have also check the option Synchronize across time zones but it did not solve the issue. Has anybody encountered and fixed the issue or at least found a workaround?

    Thank you for posting your query.

    Kindly follow the steps provided below to resolve your issue.

    Try not to use the "Daily" setting but to say, "One time" and set this in repeat task every {time} for a duration of in my case every day going forward so Indefinitely.
