Disable-SCDWJobCategory

Disables all jobs within a job category.

Syntax

Disable-SCDWJobCategory [-JobCategoryName] <String> [-ComputerName <String>] [-Credential <PSCredential>]
 [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Disable-SCDWJobCategory cmdlet disables all jobs within a job category.

Examples

Example 1: Disable jobs by category

PS C:\>Disable-SCDWJobCategory -ComputerName "serverDW72" -JobCategoryName "CubeProcessing"

This command disables the jobs in the CubeProssing category.

Example 2: Disable jobs using credentials

PS C:\>$credUser = Get-Credential
PS C:\>Disable-SCDWJobCategory -ComputerName "serverDW72" -JobCategoryName "CubeProcessing" â€"Credential $credUser

The first command stores user credentials for the Credential parameter.

The second command disables the jobs in the CubeProssing category using the specified credentials.

Example 3: Display job enabled/disabled status

PS C:\>Get-SCDWJob -ComputerName "serverDW72" | Select-Object -Property CategoryName, IsEnabled -Unique | Format-Table -Property CategoryName, IsEnabled -AutoSize

This command provides information about enabled and disabled jobs in the job categories. If all the jobs in the category are either enabled or disabled, the value in the IsEnabled column in the output reflects that value.

If at least one job in a job category has an opposite IsEnabled value from the other jobs in the same category, the job category name is repeated with that value (as is the case for the Load category in the example output). This is achieved by using the Unique parameter with the Select-Object command.
