Review the attached document to see how the password for a scheduled task on a Windows server.  In this case a Domain Account was managed using the Windows Proxy connector.  You may be able to use the Windows Domain Services connector as well.  The process would be similar for Services on the Windows server.

What is interesting is that Scheduled Task management is a little more sensitive than Service management. It seems that to take a Scheduled Task under management, the password the Scheduled Task has stored must match what is in the CA PAM credential vault. This means you may have to update the Task's password first, then discover it and take it under CA PAM management. Taking a Service under management was mush easier - PAM just updates the password the Service has stored.
