Windows SCHTASKS command line scheduler: create if task doesn't exist?

I have a scheduled task in a batch file like this:

SCHTASKS /CREATE /SC DAILY /ST 03:30:00 /TN "MySQL Backup" /TR %SCRIPTPATH%\Backup_MySQL.cmd /RU "NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM"

Because I move this script from server to server, is there a way to first check if this task exists, then:

1.) If it does exist, to update the time of the scheduled task in case the time was changed in the batch script?
2.) If it doesn't then create it?
