To do this execute:



The output for this is shown below:

Sometimes the relevant sub system data might be incorrect.  You may need to run following script and re-start the SQL Serve Agent job.

EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_verify_subsystems 1

This procedure is simply updating the above table getting relevant data from the registry.
