Using the Windows task scheduler we can schedule PowerShell scripts to launch a program at a certain time.
At Bobcares, we often get requests from our customers to run the PowerShell script by using scheduler as part of our Server Management Services.
Today, let’s get into the details on how our Support Engineers help our customers to schedule the scripts.
How does PowerShell Script Schedule via Task Scheduler?
Powershell is a command-line framework in windows to write and execute scripts. The main advantage of the PowerShell script is to reduce the repetitive tasks which are done manually.
By using the Task Scheduler we can execute the Powershell scripts at predefined times or specified time intervals.
The task scheduler saves time and effort in executing the Powershell script daily.
How to schedule the PowerShell Script?
Recently one of our customers contacted us to run PowerShell Script using Task Scheduler. Let’s discuss how our Support Engineers do it.
1. Firstly, we open the Task Scheduler and click Create Task option.
2. Then we enter a name and description for the new task. To run the program with administrator privileges, we check the Run with the highest privileges box.
3. After that, we move to the Triggers Tab and specify the conditions that trigger the running of the script.
4. Then we navigate to the Action Tab, and we provide the following parameters.
- Action: To start a program
- Program\script: Name of the PowerShell program
- Add arguments (optional): Specify the file path to the script
In this case, we want to start a program, we give Action as Start a Program. Also, we create a PowerShell script and save the script with a ps1 extension.
5. Next in the Conditions tab, we need not change the default settings. Also, we set up some additional parameters for the scheduled task in the Settings tab.
6. Finally, we enter the password for the account to execute the scheduled task.
From the Task Scheduler, we can view all the scheduled tasks, the last run time, and see the errors in execution on the last run result.
