The run_repository_job command runs a job in the DSC repository.

The run_repository_job command can only be initiated if no operational jobs are running. The -v and -n parameters are not supported for backup jobs, and are optional parameters for restore and analyze jobs. If -v is not entered, it defaults to the latest successful backup job version. You do not need to specify a target name for restore or analyze jobs; if you do not, the command takes the target name configured in config_repository_backup.
