Managing Scheduled Jobs from Management Studio Express RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm working on a backup solution for my company. Right now we have three servers in three locations running SQL Server 2000. For testing purposes, I created a scheduled job on one of these servers. It worked fine but I'd like to tweak the job some, tinker with the timing and save locations. I'm using Management Studio Express on my laptop to remotely work with these databases but I can't seem to find a decent way to work with existing jobs. Am I missing something or does SSMSE lack the "manage jobs" functionality?

  • SSMSE only exposes functionality that is available in SQL Express. Since Express doesn't include Agent, SSMSE doesn't include the ability to manage Agent jobs.

    The SQL 2005 Feature Pack includes some DTS 2000 add-in that may meet your needs. I've not worked with them, but they may work for you.
