Detailed Description

The Set-ClusteredScheduledTask cmdlet changes settings for a clustered scheduled task. For instance, you can change the actions or triggers associated with a task.

You can make changes to a task even if an instance of the task is currently running. Any changes do not affect any actions already initiated.

For more information about the Task Scheduler, see the Task Scheduler Overview topic in the TechNet Library at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc721871.aspx.

Parameters

-Action<CimInstance[]>

Specifies an array of action objects to use in the task. To obtain a task action object, use the New-ScheduledTaskAction cmdlet.

A task can have a single action or up to 32 actions. If you specify more than one action, the cluster runs them in sequence.

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

-ThrottleLimit<Int32>

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

A trigger is a set of criteria that starts the running of a task. You can use both time-based and event-based triggers. One or more triggers can start a task. You can specify up to 48 triggers.

Examples

Example 1: Change actions for a task

This example changes the task actions for a scheduled task.

The first command uses the New-ScheduledTaskAction cmdlet to create a task action and stores that action in the $Action01 variable.

The second command uses the New-ScheduledTaskAction cmdlet to create a task action and stores that action in the $Action02 variable.

The final command changes the action assigned to the task named Task03 to the the two actions stored in $Action01 and $Action02. The cluster runs more than one action in sequence.


PS C:\> $Action01 = New-ScheduledTaskAction -Execute Notepad
PS C:\> $Action02 = New-ScheduledTaskAction -Execute Calc
PS C:\> Set-ClusteredScheduledTask -TaskName "Task03" -Action $Action01,$Action02
