Run SharePoint’s health rules immediately with PowerShell

Instead of waiting for every health rule’s timer job to run on its own, it’s also possible to run them manually. The following script will execute every timer job with “Health Analysis Job” in its display name.

First we have to check whether or not the PowerShell snap-in is loaded, and if it’s not, load it.

if ((Get-PSSnapin -Name Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue) -eq $null)
    Add-PsSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell

$healthRules = Get-SPTimerJob | Where {$_.DisplayName -match "Health Analysis Job"}
foreach($healthRule in $healthRules) {
    Write-Host "Executing" . $healthRule.DisplayName

Now quickly go fix those errors!
