After upgrading to ITMS 8.5 RU3, the following Tasks throw errors when trying to load (under SMP Console>Manage>Jobs and Tasks>System Jobs and Tasks> Real-Time System Manager):

-Process Management
-Service Management

You can create those tasks types, but as soon as they are created, the error is thrown when loaded:
These tasks cannot be scheduled.
