    Ron, I like your script a lot, and tried to adjust it for SQL server backup., I load [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SqlServer.SMO") and then try the following:

    # Declare SQL objects with strongly typed variables

    [Microsoft.SqlServer.SMO.Server]$SQLserver = New-Object ([Microsoft.SqlServer.SMO.Server])

    # Connect to SQL Server with specified instance

    $SQLserver.Connect($Servername)

    but am getting a error:

    Unable to find type [Microsoft.SqlServer.SMO.Server]:

    or if I try to load just LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SqlServer"] that errors out too.

    I attach my script here as SQLCMD_v4.ps1.txt

    Hi Ron,

    I got your script downloaded directly from Powershell Idera site. The script is working great through command prompt windows or Powershell window directly. However, it does not work when I am trying to schedule it into the sql server agent. Btw, I am new to the Powershell, so not sure what do I need to do beside putting in the job step and choose powershell. I also try to set the policy unrestricted, it still threw me the same error. Here is the error I have received.

    Executed as user: The job script encountered the following errors. These errors did not stop the script: A job step received an error at line 35 in a PowerShell script. The corresponding line is ' Backup-SSAS $serverInstance $backupDestination $retentionDays $logDir '. Correct the script and reschedule the job. The error information returned by PowerShell is: 'TRAPPED: Cannot invoke this function because the current host does not implement it. ' A job step received an error at line 35 in a PowerShell script. The corresponding line is ' Backup-SSAS $serverInstance $backupDestination $retentionDays $logDir '. Correct the script and reschedule the job. The error information returned by PowerShell is: 'TRAPPED: Cannot invoke this function because the current host does not implement it. ' A job step received an error at line 35 in a PowerShell script. The corresponding line is ' Backup-SSAS $serverInstance $backupDestination $retentionDays $logDir '. Correct the script and reschedule the job. The error information returned by PowerShell is: 'TRAPPED: Cannot invoke this function because the current host does not implement it. ' A job step received an error at line 35 in a PowerShell script. The corresponding line is ' Backup-SSAS $serverInstance $backupDestination $retentionDays $logDir '. Correct the script and reschedule the job. The error information returned by PowerShell is: 'TRAPPED: Cannot invoke this function because the current host does not implement it. '.

    I am running under SQL server 2008 and Powershell 1.0. It's just work without the sql server agent. Do I have to do anything before adding this script into the job steps? Can you advise? Your reply will be much appreciate as I am trying to set this up into all our SSAS environment here.

    Hello,

    There are some commands you cannot run from an SQL Server job because there is no console, for the example write-host cmdlet.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards.

    Victor.
