&Exchange. This is useful for both reporting and on occasions for other
tasks such as disk management. Currently we are migrating an aging Exchange

see the scheduled run time or you refer to previously run job logs or
indeed you look at the snapshot creation time. All of these are rather

I am reaching the conclusion that I may have to use Swagger APIs to get a
CLI type interface which will involve a learning curve.
