How to find the TFS scheduled jobs detail?

by XDK 22. October 2015 09:23

Solution: 

You can query the Job details tables in Tfs_Configuration

Query:

SELECT tbl_JobSchedule.JobId, tbl_JobSchedule.ScheduledTime, tbl_JobSchedule.Interval,
tbl_JobSchedule.TimeZoneId, tbl_JobDefinition.JobName FROM tbl_JobDefinition
RIGHT OUTER JOIN tbl_JobSchedule ON tbl_JobDefinition.JobId = tbl_JobSchedule.JobId

Output:
JobId ScheduledTime Interval (Sec) TimeZoneId JobName

by XDK 20. October 2015 13:48

Solution:

You can perform a Copy-Only backup in SQL Server. A Copy-Only is a SQL Server backup that is independent of the sequence of conventional SQL Server backups.

  • Open SQL Server Management Studio
  • Right Click on the TFS database you want to backup
  • Select Tasks --> Back Up... menu

 

  • On the General page of the Back Up Database dialog box, select the Copy Only Backup option.

 

  • Click OK
