Just a quick one. I ran into this problem when updating a scheduled task. After updating I had to enter the credentials again for the user account the task will be using to execute and it then gave me this error message:

An error has occurred for task <task name>. Error message: The following error was reported: 2147944309

Turned out the service account I used in Active Directory was locked out from logging on!

Unlocking the account fixed the issue.

Note that you can also get error 2147943731 when the user account is disabled instead of locked out:

ScheduledTaskError
