We want to run a powershell script automatically once a month, can one schedule this with powershell? if so, what command would we use ?

Thank you

Powershell 3 has a set of commands for creating windows scheduled tasks, you can find information about them here: http://blogs.technet.com/b/heyscripting ... d-job.aspx

That being said, normally I would just create a task using Windows Task Scheduler and have it run "powershell.exe" with a parameter for the path to your script, "C:\Scripts\PowershellScript.ps1"

I attempted to download the psscheduledjob module from Microsoft web site however, I did not find a download for that module, Am I missing something?

Search via the different forums, and the PSScheduledjob module appears to be in Powershell version 3 only , not version 2
