Detailed Description

The Find-SCJob cmdlet searches for Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) jobs. You can search for the most recent jobs, jobs after a certain date, or search for a job by its result or target ID.

Parameters

-After<DateTime>

Specifies a DateTime object for the time after which jobs are retrieved. By default, time is represented in the local time zone. You can pass the DateTime object as UTC for standardized time.

When you specify this parameter, jobs are filtered by the StartTime property and returned from earliest start time to latest start time.

For information about getting a DateTime object, see the Get-Date cmdlet.

Examples

Example 1: Find all jobs for the last five hours

This command searches for all jobs that started within the last five hours. Because the MaxCount parameter has a value of 25, only 25 job objects are displayed.


PS C:\> $StartTime = (Get-Date) - (New-TimeSpan -Hours 5)
PS C:\> Find-SCJob -MaxCount 25 -After $StartTime

Example 2: Find recent jobs

This command searches for recent jobs and displays the 50 most recent jobs.


PS C:\> Find-SCJob -MaxCount 50 -Recent

Example 3: Find jobs by ObjectID

The first command gets the virtual machine object named VM01, and then stores the object in the $VM variable.

The second command returns up to 10 jobs for the specified virtual machine ID.


PS C:\> $VM = Get-SCVirtualMachine -Name "VM01"
PS C:\> Find-SCJob -MaxCount 10 -ObjectID $VM.Id
