Synopsis

Copy-DbaAgentSchedule migrates shared job schedules from one SQL Server to another.

Description

All shared job schedules are copied.

If the associated credential for the account does not exist on the destination, it will be skipped. If the shared job schedule already exists on the destination, it will be skipped unless -Force is used.

    [[-DestinationSqlCredential] <PSCredential>]

Examples

 

Example: 1
PS C:\> Copy-DbaAgentSchedule -Source sqlserver2014a -Destination sqlcluster

Copies all shared job schedules from sqlserver2014a to sqlcluster using Windows credentials. If shared job schedules with the same name exist on sqlcluster, they will be skipped.

Example: 2
PS C:\> Copy-DbaAgentSchedule -Source sqlserver2014a -Destination sqlcluster -WhatIf -Force

Shows what would happen if the command were executed using force.

Example: 3
PS C:\> Get-DbaAgentSchedule -SqlInstance sql2016 | Out-GridView -Passthru | Copy-DbaAgentSchedule -Destination sqlcluster

Gets a list of schedule, outputs to a gridview which can be selected from, then copies to SqlInstance

Required Parameters

-Destination

Destination SQL Server. You must have sysadmin access and the server must be SQL Server 2000 or higher.

Alias
Required True
Pipeline false
Default Value

Optional Parameters

-Source

Source SQL Server. You must have sysadmin access and server version must be SQL Server version 2000 or higher.

Alias
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value
-SourceSqlCredential

Login to the target instance using alternative credentials. Accepts PowerShell credentials (Get-Credential). Windows Authentication, SQL Server Authentication, Active Directory - Password, and Active Directory - Integrated are all supported. For MFA support, please use Connect-DbaInstance.

Alias

Pipeline false
Default Value
-DestinationSqlCredential

Login to the target instance using alternative credentials. Accepts PowerShell credentials (Get-Credential). Windows Authentication, SQL Server Authentication, Active Directory - Password, and Active Directory - Integrated are all supported. For MFA support, please use Connect-DbaInstance.

Alias
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value
-Schedule

Copy only specific schedules. Note that SQL Server allows multiple schedules with the same name. Use Id for more accurate schedule copies.

Alias

-Id

Copy only specific schedule.

Alias

Default Value
-InputObject

Enables piping from Get-DbaAgentSchedule

Alias
Required False
Pipeline true (ByValue)
Default Value
-Force

If this switch is enabled, the Operator will be dropped and recreated on Destination.

Alias
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value False
-EnableException

By default, when something goes wrong we try to catch it, interpret it and give you a friendly warning message. This avoids overwhelming you with "sea of red" exceptions, but is inconvenient because it basically disables advanced scripting. Using this switch turns this "nice by default" feature off and enables you to catch exceptions with your own try/catch.

Alias
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value False
-WhatIf

If this switch is enabled, no actions are performed but informational messages will be displayed that explain what would happen if the command were to run.

Alias wi
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value
-Confirm

If this switch is enabled, you will be prompted for confirmation before executing any operations that change state.

Alias cf
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value
