Executing a job through an Execution Task

When you execute an Execution Task, you are actually executing the job with which the Execution Task is associated at the target servers defined through the Execution Task. You may want to execute an Execution Task immediately rather than wait for the next scheduled execution, in which case you can choose between executing the job against all target servers defined in the Execution Task or executing the job against failed targets only.

Before you begin

Ensure that you have, at minimum, Read and Execute authorizations not only for the job (for example, AuditJob.Read and AuditJob.Execute), but also for the Execution Task ExecutionTask.Read and ExecutionTask.Execute).

To execute a job through an Execution Task

Do one of the following:

  • To execute the job against all target servers defined in the Execution Task, even those targets where the job already completed successfully, perform one of the following procedures:
    • Navigate to the Execution Task in the Jobs folder, right-click it, and select Execute.
    • Right-click the Execution Task and select Show Results. Then right-click the Execution Task in the root node and select Execute.
  • To execute the job only against target servers where previous job runs have not completed successfully, perform one of the following procedures:
    • Navigate to the Execution Task in the Jobs folder, right-click it, and select Execute Against Failed Targets.
    • Right-click the Execution Task and select Show Results. Then right-click a failed job run under the Execution Task and select Execute Against Failed Targets.
