SchedulateTask

Good morning,

I have a problem with the integration of a powershell plugin.
I wanted to integrate a scheduled task but site24x7 returned this as an error:

Execution Error :: schtasks : Error :: The syntax of the filename, directory or volume name is incorrect.Au caractère C:\Program Files (x86)\Site24x7\WinAgent\monitoring\Plugins\ScheduledTask\ScheduledTask. ps1:65: 20+ $jobDetails = schtasks /QUERY /FO LIST /V /TN $jobName+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo: NotSpecified: (Error: The syn...is incorrect.:String) [], RemoteExc

Yet the location of my scheduled tasks is good.

Here is my code:


Function GetErrorMessage
([int]$errorcode)
{
$msg = ""
switch($errorcode)
{
0 { $msg="The operation completed successfully";break}
1 { $msg="Incorrect function called or unknown function called. (did you use the correct start in folder and/or environment path for the bat/exe?)";break}

3228369022 { $msg="Unknown software exception.";break}
default {"Something else happened"; break}
}
return $msg
}

Function Get-ScheduledJobDetails($jobName)
{
$ret = New-Object -TypeName PSObject
$atributeList = @("TaskName","Author","Scheduled Task State","Start Date","Next Run Time","Status","Last Run Time","Last Result")
$jobDetails = schtasks /QUERY /FO LIST /V /TN $jobName
foreach($atribute in $atributeList)
{
$temp = ($jobDetails | Select-String -Pattern $atribute| Select-Object -Last 1).ToString()
$key,$value = $temp.Split(':',[StringSplitOptions]"None")
$key = ($key.trim()).Replace(' ',"_");
$value = ($value -join ':').trim()
$ret | Add-Member -Type NoteProperty -Name $key -Value $value
}
return $ret
}


$taskName = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Cegid\Cegid Business\CegidFinance\Task Scheduler\Framework\CbpReportGuardian.exe" # Raplace your taskname to be monitored


#data collection

$lastTaskResult = $task.Last_Result
$data.Add("errorCode",$lastTaskResult)
$timenow = Get-Date
$timespan = NEW-TIMESPAN –Start $lastRunTime –End $timenow

$timediff = $timespan.Days.ToString() + " Days "+ $timespan.Hours.ToString() + " Hours " + $timespan.Minutes.ToString() + " Minutes " + $timespan.Seconds.ToString() + " Seconds "
$data.Add("lastRunBefore",$timediff)

#Site24x7 Plugin Metrics

$version = "1"

$displayname = "OL-XRP " + $taskName

$heartbeat = "True"

$mainJson = @{}

$mainJson.Add("version",$version)
$mainJson.Add("displayname",$displayname)
$mainJson.Add("heartbeat",$heartbeat)
$mainJson.Add("data",$data)
if($lastTaskResult -ge 0)
{
$msg = GetErrorMessage($lastTaskResult)
$mainJson.Add("msg",$msg)
}
$mainJson | ConvertTo-Json

 

Thanks to you.

Re: SchedulateTask

Hi,

Is there is any task with the name "C:\Program Files (x86)\Cegid\Cegid Business\CegidFinance\Task Scheduler\Framework\CbpReportGuardian.exe" in your server?

If there is no such task present in your server, please get the task name that you want to monitor from the task scheduler and update it in the script and try again. Hope this helps.

Hisham Thorakkal

Re: Re: SchedulateTask

Hi, 

Yes a scheduled task has this name in my server with this path.

Is it necessary to simply put the task name written in hard copy or to write the precise path of the task?

Thanks to you.

Cordially,

Jeremy Kebir

Hi, 

Please share the screenshot of the task scheduler which contains the name and location of the task you want to monitor. That will help us to debug your case further.

Re: Re:

I can't upload my third screenshot but you can see it on the right side of the path :

Folders of the task \Cegid

Re: Re: Re:

Hi,

Thank you for sharing the details.

We request you to provide the 'path with the task name' in the script.

For example,

In screenshot task1, the name is 'Adobe Acrobat Update Task' and path is '\'. Provide the task name in the script as 'Adobe Acrobat Update Task'.

Note: If the location is just '/', providing only the task name is sufficient.

Another example,

In screenshot task2, the name is 'Firefox Default Browser Agent E7CF176E110C211B' and path is '\Mozilla'. Give the task name in the script as '\Mozilla\Firefox Default Browser Agent E7CF176E110C211B'.

Hope this helps. Let us know for further queries, if any, in the below thread.

Hisham Thorakkal

Re: Re: Re: Re:

Hi,

I still have a problem.

I specify that my file and my powershell script each have the same name and that the path is well referenced.

here is the PluginDetails that I get Site24x7 :

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re:

Hi,

 We could see that the system language is not English, is it possible to share the system language details?

Also, the script is created for the OS with system language English. We will edit the script and give you, to work with your system language. For that, please execute the below command and share the output:

schtasks /QUERY /FO LIST /V /TN "\Cegid\CegidFinance (Task Scheduler)"

Thanks!

Re: SchedulateTask

Hello,

The language of our system is French.

I tried your order but it was not successful.

The subject becomes a little urgent from our side, if it is possible for you to do what is necessary quickly enough.

Thanks to you.

With kind regards,
