    The task completed with an exit code of (1)

    I am running a batch file for creating new users in the Active Directory
    using dsadd command, as a schedule task and it gives an error in the log file
    as "The task completed with an exit code of (1), and the users are not
    created.

    I have a user created as NSUser and made it a member of Domain Users and
    Account Operators, and using this account to run the schedule task.

    But when I make the NSUser a member of Administrators group the task runs
    successfull without any errors and the user accounts are created using the
    batch file.

    Ikram - if you are looking for help regarding a batch file that throws an
    error, then you might want to include it as part of your post...

    Marcin:

    The batch file is running the dsadd command to create 1000's of users, let
    me show you one of the users command as shown below:

    dsadd user cn=abbat810001,ou=students,ou=bghs,ou=schools,dc=d214,dc=org -upn
    abbat810001@d214.org -fn "ALEXANDER" -mi P -ln "ABBATIELLO" -display
    "ALEXANDER P. ABBATIELLO" -pwd 035692 -desc "BGHS-Student" -canchpwd no
    -memberof cn=BGHS-Students,ou=groups,ou=bghs,ou=schools,dc=d214,dc=org
    -pwdneverexpires yes

    So it has 1000's of those lines.

    The batch file runs fine, normally and in the schedule task if and only the
    member is part of the Administrators group. For security reasons I thought I
    would only use the Account Operator group, and then tried to schedule the
    task but it fails with that exit code of (1). But if add the user into the
    Administrators group and schedule the task it runs successfully.
