How to Execute Get Job Result
If you are a Windows Exchange administrator, you know how to get job information and how to get job status information. If not, this article will help you understand the process. Basically, every Windows Exchange server contains a Get Job dialog box. You access the Get Job dialog box from the Workstation or Microsoft Outlook application that you are using.
The Get-job dialog box displays an empty field. On the right side of the dialog box, there is a line that says Attempt to acquire the services or commands for the named computer. The name of the computer you are trying to acquire is first found in the Details folder of the computer. In the Name box, enter the name of the service or program that you want to get-process. The second text box is where you enter the command that you want to perform, such as Get-Service.
The third text box is where you enter the parameters of the Get job, including the parameters that you set in the first two boxes. In the Service name box, you can type the name of the service that you want to acquire. In the Startup type box, you can choose the physical start up method, which is always automatic, or you can choose the Nuxe or Interactive startup option. When you are on the Startup dialog box, you are not prompted to log in to the remote computer. This is because getting jobs send their output to the console window.
Once you have started the Get job, it waits until the next time you are connected to the local computer. If you log in during the idle period, the Get job finishes immediately and it displays the message Waiting for Network Maintenance. When the computer restarts, it will display the message Starting Network Maintenance in the console window. In short, the command gets the job running, but it does not start it yet. It waits for the computer to become ready again.
In previous versions of MS SQL Server, there was a parameter called EnableMMAP to enable multi-master scenario. The parameter enabled multi-master scenario means that getting jobs would run in parallel on different databases. With the -ormap switch, you can specify the parameters that you want to be persisted across restarts. The command also has the -cflags switch that tells the SQL Server to flush all of the flags that are set on the server. Flushing the flags means the data is not flushed to the master process and is stored in memory only.
In previous versions of MS SQL Server, the command gets the job running, but it fails to start it when the connection fails. If you are using any version before SQL Server 2021, you need to use the -restore only option to provide a safe workaround. The -restoreonly command specifies a safe mode that runs the command without involving the server. Without the -restoreonly switch, the command gets the server and restarts it when the connection fails. For more information on how to specify the parameters that are necessary for a particular job, you should consult the web site Microsoft SQL Serverifications. There is a section entitled Web Tables on this web site that provides details about all the available parameters and how to use them with Get Job Results.
