Scripting SQL jobs using PowerShell

By Premjit Das,

This powershell script can be used to generate scripts for sql jobs with different filenames.

I have customised this script in such a way that it will not script any "Replication" or "logshipping" category Jobs.

You can modify the script as per your requirement.



Step 1) Create a folder in your C drive as "test"

Step 2) Save the script with extension PS1. as "job_script"

Step 3) Pass the "instance name" as the parameter. This will create the scripts for the specified instance name.
