Operation name: Deletessptimerjob


Deletes all of the timer jobs in the SSP.

The primary purpose of this operation is for an administrator to delete all timer jobs in the SSP. This operation is especially useful if Microsoft Project Server was installed and then was uninstalled from a computer. In this scenario, the Project Server SSP timer jobs still exist in the SSP database even though Project Server is not installed on the computer. To see a list of all the timer jobs in a specific SSP including the orphan timer jobs, use the Enumssptimerjobs operation. For more information about timer jobs, see the Remarks section of this article.
