Job.ApplyToTargetServer Method (String)


Adds a server to the list of target servers maintained for the referenced Microsoft SQL Server Agent job.

Namespace:   Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Agent
Assembly:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo (in Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo.dll)

public void ApplyToTargetServer(
	string serverName


Type: System.String

A String value that specifies the name of the execution target server.

Before a SQL Server Agent job can execute, the job must have at least one step and an execution target.

Use either the ApplyToTargetServer or ApplyToTargetServerGroup method to add an execution target. When the job is to run on the local server, use the ApplyToTargetServer method to target the job and specify the server by using the string (local).

The following code example creates a job and sets it to execute on the local server.


Server srv = new Server("(local)");
Job jb = new Job(srv.JobServer, "Test Job");


$srv = new-object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server("(local)")
$jb = new-object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Agent.Job($srv.JobServer, "Test Job")
