The Task Scheduler overview display

After you have created tasks to be run on a SafeGuard Enterprise Server, they are displayed in the Task Scheduler dialog you open by selecting Tools > Task Scheduler.

This dialog shows the following columns for each task:

Column Description
Task Name Shows the unique task name.
SGN Server Indicates on which server the task is executed.
Schedule Shows the schedule specified for the task with recurrence and time.
Next Run Time Shows the next time the task will be executed (date and time). If there are no more run times specified for the task, this column shows None.
Last Run Time Shows the last time the task was executed (date and time). If it has not been executed yet, this column shows None.
Last Run Result Shows the result of the last task run:
  • Success

    The task's script was executed successfully.

  • Failure

    Execution of the task has failed. An error number is shown, if available.

  • Running

    The script is running.

  • Insufficient Rights

    The task has failed due to insufficient rights for script execution.

  • Aborted

    The execution of the task was aborted because the execution time exceeded 24 hours.

  • Lost control

    Control of the task's script execution was lost, for example because the SGN scheduler service was stopped.

  • Script is corrupt

    The script to be executed is corrupt.

  • The script was deleted in the meantime

    While the task was queued for execution, the corresponding script was removed from the SafeGuard Enterprise Database.

  • Runtime errors

    A runtime error was detected during the processing of the scheduler service.

Under the columns, the following buttons are displayed:

Button Description
Create... Click this button to create a new task.
Delete Click this button to delete a selected task.
Properties Click this button to display the <task name> properties dialog for a selected task. In this dialog, you can edit the task or import, export and edit scripts.
Refresh Click this button to refresh the task list in the Task Scheduler dialog. If another user has added or deleted tasks in the meantime, the task list is updated.

All servers use the current time of the database server to determine when to start tasks. Therefore, to allow better monitoring of tasks, the time of the database server is displayed here. It is rendered using the local time zone of the computer on which the SafeGuard Management Center runs.
