Probably missing something obvious but I'm stumped. Is there some way to save schedules so they don't need to be recreated if the computer needs to be restarted? FM 10 Server AdvancedMac OS X 10.4.11
When you create a schedule using the Schedule Assistant within the FileMaker Server Admin Console they are automatically saved and they then appear in the list of schedules going forward unless you delete the schedule using 'Delete selected schedules' in the 'Actions' pull down in the schedules area of the admin console.
Closing the Admin Console or restarting your machine does not affect your schedules.
Once the schedule has been saved they should not be lost even if the admin console unexpectedly quit. If you see this behavior again please let us know and provide additional details as to what caused the issue (restarting the machine, losing connection to the Admin Console, ect.)
Helpfully for this issue but not for me, today I got beachballed (I'm sure it wasn't Filemaker that caused it) and had to do a hard restart to the server. When I restarted the Admin Console the Schedules window was empty.

It is hard to determine exactly what is causing this issue. FileMaker Server schedules are stored in the plist/Registry and server_conf.xml file. It sounds like you have run into issues on your machine requiring a restart and it is possible that this may have compromised these files.
If you haven't done so already it is suggested that you reinstall FileMaker Server.
Please refer to the following Knowledgebase article for instructions on uninstalling FileMaker Server:
This schedules disappearing bug is driving us insane. It is happening to us on a brand new machine out of the box, and our client's databases are not backing up as a result! Full thread here: http://forums.filemaker.com/posts/c7bcbff1df?lang=en_US
