Scheduling Automatic Administrative Tasks in SQL Server Agent


When Microsoft SQL Server Agent acts as a master server for multiserver administration servers, known execution targets servers can be grouped for easier targeting of multiple servers at the same time.

When you create, schedule, and run jobs, use either the ApplyToTargetServer or ApplyToTargetServerGroup method to add an execution target server. When a single execution target has been added by using the ApplyToTargetServer method, the RemoveFromTargetServer method can be used to remove it.

When a job is targeted to run on the local server running SQL Server Agent, specify the server name using the string (local) when removing the execution target.

When an execution target is removed from a multiserver job, the master server posts an instruction to the target server. This indicates that the target server should drop its local copy of the job. The job is removed from the target server but remains defined at the master server. To completely remove a job from all participating servers, use the Job object's RemoveAllJobSteps method or the JobServer object's RemoveJobByID.
