I have created a timer job in VS and want to instantiate a number of times so I can have differing schedules. How can I do this.
Build your timer job solution and look for ".wsp" file being generated. Now deploy the ".wsp" file usually u do for every SP 2010 solution using Add-SPSolution and Install-SPSolution command. If your solution is intended for MOSS 2007, use
Now to schedule your timer job, go to Central Admin 2010 -> Monitoring -> Timer Jobs -> Review Job Definitions, now find your file and click on it. This will open Edit Timer Job window where you can schedule your timer job.
