  1. I’m working on some scenario based for moving SQL agent jobs from one server to another. Lets say there are 1000 jobs.
    Example: Job names:- SANFRAN_5000P,REDMOND_5000p,TEXAS_5000p,SEATTLE_5000P
    We have an option from GUI but looking for a PowerShell script or T-SQL to filter particular jobs that matches (5000P) and generate a script into a file and then execute it in another server. It would be great if you could help me on this task.

  2. Even I use the same option from object explorer details.
    How about if we can automate this task using T-SQL or PowerShell so that it will reduce the time and effort.
