running scheduled tasks as someone who is not an administrator

We have an operations group at work that deals with many day to day
activities. All of these user accounts are in an AD group, and that group is
then added to the local power users group on the servers they need to work on.

If they log onto one of these Win 2003 Servers and try to even look at
Scheduled Tasks they get Access Denied.

How can we grant this group, or local power users in effect, the rights to
view and run scheduled tasks, without making them box admins? We tried
adding them to "logon as batch job" and that didn't work.

Thanks.

Hello,

logon as a batch job is a right to allow to start scheduled task, not to
change them

You may want to use cacls command to modify tasks folder. Or this search
result may help.
