If I have a big environment with 100,000 users, I am planning to split the servers for WFE, Application Servers and Batch Processing.

I wonder if there is an specific way to enable/install specific timer jobs only in one server or group of servers

You could do it from the TimerJob definitions by specifying the SPServer and the SPJobLockType. MSDN

Though this would be easier if your solution was not already in production

what about if I dont know the name of the server when I am developing? probably put the name on the property bag and read it from there in the constructor?… – Esteban V Apr 29 '13 at 10:34
