If you are an Exchange administrator, there is a good chance that you have had to deal with Powershell at some point. Maybe you have even written some Powershell scripts to automate some of your tasks. But what if you could automate your Powershell scripts?
There are a few ways to do this, but the easiest way is to use a tool called PSScheduledJob. PSScheduledJob is a Powershell module that allows you to schedule Powershell scripts to run at a specific time. You can use PSScheduledJob to schedule your Powershell scripts to run daily, weekly, monthly, or even one time only.
To use PSScheduledJob, first you need to install the module. The easiest way to do this is to use the Powershell Gallery. To install the module, open a Powershell window and run the following command:
Install-Module -Name PSScheduledJob
Once the module is installed, you can now use the New-JobTrigger cmdlet to create a new scheduled job. To create a daily scheduled job, you would use the following command:
New-JobTrigger -At 6:00am -Daily
This will create a new scheduled job that will run at 6:00am every day. You can also use the New-JobTrigger cmdlet to create a weekly or monthly scheduled job.
Once you have created the scheduled job, you can now use the Start-Job cmdlet to start the job.
Start-Job -Name MyDailyJob
This will start the job immediately. If you want to schedule the job to start at a specific time, you can use the -Trigger parameter.
Start-Job -Name MyDailyJob -Trigger (New-JobTrigger -At 6:00am -Daily)
This will schedule the job to start at 6:00am every day.
You can also use the Stop-Job cmdlet to stop the job.
Stop-Job -Name MyDailyJob
Once the job is stopped, it will not run again until you start it again with the Start-Job cmdlet.
You can also use the Get-Job cmdlet to get information about the job.
Get-Job -Name MyDailyJob
This will return information about the job, such as the job status, when it was last run, and the next run time.
You can also use the Get-JobTrigger cmdlet to get information about the job trigger.
Get-JobTrigger -Name MyDailyJob
This will return information about the job trigger, such as the trigger type, the start time, and the end time.
If you want to view the output of the job, you can use the Get-JobOutput cmdlet.
Get-JobOutput -Name MyDailyJob
