Sql Server Job or Task.

Does anyone know if a job that is scheduled was not able to run at its specified time, if that job will wait until it can run, or is it a pass/fail kind of thing..? IE: If it cannot run at its specified time, will it wait until it can, or will it not run until it’s NEXT scheduled time ( usually the next day).. Our server ran out of space on the log file, and when cleared up, one of the jobs that failed, appeared to run hours after it had tried to run but couldnt.. Thx,

When we schedule a job, it will run at the next scheduled occurance irrespective of the fact if the previous run was a success or a failure or the job didn’t run at all. Gaurav
