I need to create a job using SQL Server 2005. I was wondering is this is possible. If i have one column and it updates the column lets say from 'complete' to 'Incomplete' after particular date or time of month.
I dont see SQL Server agent in my SSMS in SQL server 2005. Please if someone can tell me do i need to login using sQL Server authentication as I am logged in using window authentication righte now.

If you are using workgroup, standard or enterprise it will be in the object explorer.  If you are using SQL Server Express, there is no SQL Server Agent.

If you are using SQL Express you will need to execute the scripts as SQLCMD commands using a third party scheduler or Windows Task Scheduler.

Its not express edition .......its the standard editioon i think ...its SSMS provided by my organisation, Can somebody tell me how can i reinstall that component although i have the SSMS installed. do i need to choose client componenets, when i choose that it says that component is already installed. Please suggest any way i can install the SQL server agent or any other way in SQL Server 2005.

Run this in a query attached to THAT SQL Server.

select serverproperty('edition')


Realizing that SSMS is a management tool used to attach to SQL Servers and is not the SQL Server Engine itself.  You can attach (either through the object explorer, new query window and/or the registered servers list) to servers running any edition of SQL Server (std, exp, wrk, ent) and any version (limited capabilities with 2008).

Prepare for your VMware VCP6-DCV exam.

it displays as Enterprise Edition the result of that query. When i m connecting to my local server, it shows the sql server agent. But when I am connecting to the DB hosted on the server its not showing up the SQL Server Agent. Do I need any specofic permissions or account to see the SQL Server Agent there?

yes.  i don't think it's quite SA, but i think there's a role for it.


I believe you have to be part of the "SQLAgentUserRole" role.

The SQL server agent is not allowed on our servers that was the reason it didnt show up.

BrandonGalderisiCommented:
So SQL Server Agent is not installed at all?  Or you are "not allowed" to see them from your local machine?

SSIS packages are scheduled through SQL Server Agent though.
