When you maintain a number of servers which require to trigger the same scheduled task manually, you can simplify the process by triggering the scheduled task remotely.
In this example, I assume that the script is being executed on a dedicated management server (aka job server) within an Exchange Server 2013 environment. The scheduled task must exist on all servers having the same name.
Create a simple PowerShell script at a file location of your choice (i.e. D:\Scripts\Start-RemoteScheduledTasks.ps1)
$cimSession = New-CimSession -ComputerName SERVER1,SERVER2,SERVER3,SERVER4
Start-ScheduledTask TASKNAME -CimSession $cimSession
Now create a new shortcut on your server desktop with the following configuration:
Target: C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe -command "& D:\Scripts\Start-RemoteScheduledTasks.ps1"
If required, select "Run as Administrator" in Shortcut -> Advanced settings.
