schtasks - maybe helpful

You may read that it depends on how they were scheduled. If they were scheduled with at then the step below will not work, if they were scheduled with task scheduler then it should work.

Use the below command line and capture the output and paste into a blank XML file.  You can then import and/or modify the XML

schtasks /Query [/S  [/U  [/P []]] /XML /TN

try this
Set objShell = CreateObject("WSCript.shell")
strServer = InputBox("enter server name")
strPath = InputBox("path to save csv file. e.g : c:\temp")
strCmd = "cmd /c schtasks /query /S \\" & strServer & " /V /FO CSV >" & Chr(34) & strPath & "\" & strServer & ".csv" & chr(34)
objShell.Run(strCmd,0,True)

Open in new window

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

little fix
Set objShell = CreateObject("WSCript.shell")
strServer = InputBox("enter server name")
strPath = InputBox("path to save csv file. e.g : c:\temp")
strCmd = "cmd /c schtasks /query /S \\" & strServer & " /V /FO CSV >" & Chr(34) & strPath & "\" & strServer & ".csv" & chr(34)
objShell.Run strCmd,0,True

Open in new window

You can just copy the .job files from \\servername\admin$\tasks.  They can be exported to other machines by copying them to the same location.  Usually only the "Run As" parameter has to be adjusted afterwards.

Thank you all for your kind help.

I will try every suggestion and see which will be the best for my needs.

Basically I need the following:

- Name of the Scheduled Task/s (it's essential that I have a list of all running tasks on the server)
- I need it to get that info from around 20 DC's
- Most important thing is that I get the account name which is used to run the scheduled task.

Output file version is insubstantial. .csv, .xml etc, any will do.

Thx, regards,
Nik
