Task Manager is paused and is not running any of the default Scheduled Tasks
Last Updated January 23, 2007

Even though the Altiris Services are running as well, Task Scheduler Service and the Notification Server don't say that the activities are paused and the tasks don't run. When I run any of the Scheduled Tasks, it changes the "Last Run Time" but actually those didn't run the all. If I create a new task manually, it runs just fine.

There are three registry keys that need to be checked. Those registry keys are
These Regkeys are located at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Altiris\eXpress\Notification Server. If any of those has a value of 1, change it back to 0. This should unpause TaskManager and allow to run the Scheduled Tasks properly or run the AD Import properly in this case.
Applies To Notification Server 6.0.6074 SP3 or earlier versions Microsoft AD Connector 6.1.842*
