I want to move  Sql Server Agent Jobs from one SQL Server server 2008 to another SQL Server 2008 Machine in the same network with different Owner name. Please let me know what is the best method for this task? I need to move jobs to many new servers. In some serers we already deployed some jobs manually so in this machine i should move only missing jobs. Please guide me. Thanks.

Taken from that thread:

"In SSMS you can select a SQL Agent job, right click and script it as a
CREATE.  That will give you a script that you can run on another server to
create the same job.

By the way, if you select the SQL Agent / Jobs node of Object Explore and
the use the Object Explore Details window, you can select several jobs,
right click and create a single script with all the selected jobs.

Of course, you need to make sure that all dependencies are met on the other
server.  Such things as logins, SQL Agent proxies, DTS/SSIS packages, and so
forth.

You can use dtutil to copy the packages.  The link below has all the syntax you'll need.
