Some people asked if I could update the Scheduled Task Management Pack for Windows Server 2008. So here it is: Scheduled Task Management Pack now does W2K8 .
Windows Server 2008 Task Scheduler 2.0 brings some exciting new features. From the MP author’s point of view the most significant are:
- Full support for scripting: msdn reference
- Very detailed event logging
So for Windows Server 2008 the MP does no longer have to parse the output of a command which makes it much more reliable. And since I was at it, I attempted to make the MPs less power consuming on the agents and the management servers. So I highly recommend upgrading should you still be using an older version.
Thanks everyone who provided valuable feedback during the testing phase.
