I recently rebuilt my sql dev server, and restore db from my pdn server...it went fine.

But I need to change the job step on dev server.

I got this:

Error 14274: cant add, update or del a job that originated from an msx server.......

Any solutions?  thx

I'm assuming that you have managed to recreate the job on the new server by restoring the MSDB database.  The error might be because the job's owner needs changing.   Go into the job's properties and you will see an 'owner' field.   If it isn't SA, you could try setting it to SA to see what happens.

You basically need rename the originating_server in sysjobs table if this was not the source server.
