Task Scheduler failed to start – Error Value: 2147943645

I had set up a couple of task scheduler jobs on a server to restart couple of services.
After checking on those jobs the next morning, I saw that both of them failed with error message –

Task Scheduler failed to start “\xyz” task for user “Domain\MyUserName”. Additional Data: Error Value: 2147943645.

I kicked off both jobs manually and they ran fine. After having another look at the setup, it turned out I forgot to set the option to run the jobs even if user account under which the jobs run is not logged in. After changing this setting everything worked fine.
