Description

The Find-SCJob cmdlet searches for Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) jobs. You can search for the most recent jobs, jobs after a certain date, or search for a job by its result or target ID.

Examples

Example 1: Find all jobs for the last five hours

PS C:\> $StartTime = (Get-Date) - (New-TimeSpan -Hours 5)
PS C:\> Find-SCJob -MaxCount 25 -After $StartTime

This command searches for all jobs that started within the last five hours. Because the MaxCount parameter value is set to 25, only 25 job objects are displayed.

Example 2: Find recent jobs

PS C:\> Find-SCJob -MaxCount 50 -Recent

This command searches for recent jobs and displays the 50 most recent jobs.

Example 3: Find jobs by ObjectID

PS C:\> $VM = Get-SCVirtualMachine -Name "VM01"
PS C:\> Find-SCJob -MaxCount 10 -ObjectID $VM.Id

The first command gets the virtual machine object named VM01 and stores the object in the $VM variable.

The second command returns up to 10 jobs for the specified virtual machine ID.
