Hi All,

I have two jobs job1 one server1 and job2 on server2. Both are running fine but I want to setup one job so that once the job1 on server1 is done, job2 on server2 is the next step and if everything failes I send an email saying one of the step has failed.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Cheers.

You can do following:
  • Database Mail set up on both servers
  • Add linked server on server1 to server2
  • Add last step on server1 job as following
    • EXEC [server2].msdb.dbo.sp_start_job N'YourJobName'
    • Should have notification for email attched to job for 'When Job Completes' for info on server1 job
  • Add notification email to job on server2 as for 'When Job Completes'
    • Will provide info on server2 job  
I always have mail alerts set for when job completes so that you do not assume everything is good if your email system fails.
 

--Assumes your linked server name is server2
-- Replace 'YourJobName'  with valid job name
EXEC [server2].msdb.dbo.sp_start_job N'YourJobName'
