OS: Windows server 2008 R2 Enterprise

My aim: I want to start my InfluxDB and Grafana-servers on log-on with Task sheduler.

What I have: Two batches which are working right when I start them manually. The look like this:


title grafana
call [path_to_grafana]


title influxDB
call [path_to_influxDB]

Problem: When I log on with my user Task scheduler starts influxDb process but without a cmd window (somewhere in the background), what is not preferred. And do not start grafana at all.

I don't understand what the problem is. Could you please point me in the right direction or give info where I could search for answers?

Remark1: Task Scheduler history shows: Task started Action started Created Task Process Action completed Action started Created Task Process

When I understand it right, the first "action" is grafana, it stops. The second is influx - it stops not. Why does stops grafana?


I setup something similar using the unlock workstation event and it launches a cmd window as expected. Here's something you can try. In your run command for the task, specify cmd.exe /k for the command and your batch file for an argument. /k tells cmd.exe not to exit after it execute the command. This should keep the window around.
