SQL agent job history retention can not be set RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    we've installed the SQL server 2008 R2 64bit, but when I try to access "SQL Server Agent" properties to set the history retention, it's failed. It doesnt reflect the changes made and goes back to the default settings.

    Can you share your experience on that? for me it's very improtant.

    Many thanks in advance.

  • You can't limit it for a time period like 60 days, only for the amount of rows for a job / in total.
