fact
Directory and Resource Administrator 7.x

symptom
Task Scheduler indicates Directory and Resource Administrator tasks have never run.

symptom
When viewing the properties of a task created in Task Scheduler by Directory and Resource Administrator, the Last run time statistic displays that it has never run.

cause
Task Scheduler jobs created by Directory and Resource Administrator (DRA) are automatically deleted and recreated each time the job completes. The following description explains the life cycle of one of these jobs:

  1. DRA creates a job in Task Scheduler and sets it to run at a certain time.
  2. The designated time arrives and the job runs.
  3. Once complete, Task Scheduler informs DRA that it was successful.
  4. The job is then deleted and recreated by the DRA server with a target time reflecting the interval specified in the DRA configuration.

fix
This behavior is by design of the product. The purpose of this is to ensure that each scheduled operation runs at the interval specified in DRA and is not automatically rescheduled by the Task Scheduler. This can cause a significant drain of server resources which will, in turn, delay the users' access to the application.

note
NetIQ is aware of this issue and will update this article with any new information.
