Agent Jobs Non Valid Owners

Having SQL Server Agent jobs with NULL owners can cause issues. Any record showing a NULL value indicates that the owner of the applicable Agent Job is orphaned.

Setting individuals as job owners can lead to security issues when that individual’s account is deleted from SQL Server or disabled in Active Directory. As a result, the SQL Server Agent job will stop working.

Suggested Action

Ensure that all SQL Server Agent jobs have a valid owner.

How To Check for SQL Server Agent Jobs With Non Valid Owners
