sp_Add_jobServer  does not exist in master db, it is in msdb


use master
exec msdb.dbo.sp_add_jobserver @job_name = 'DBBackup.DBBackup' , @server_name = 'csvmsql2005'

Hi,

I think sp_add_jobserver is in the msdb database, try to specify that (since you're having "use master" on top of the script)

exec msdb.dbo.sp_add_jobserver....

hope this helps

i tried it without the use master as well to no avail, but using exec msdb.do.sp_add_jobserver did the trick!

Thank you!
