Custom Timer Job - Not running?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

I have a Timer Job that was running fine in our production environment.  I noticed some possible memory leaks, so I added some code to do some more diagnostics work and tried to delete and re-create the timer job.  I did this after copying the new DLLs to the GAC and resetting IIS.

However, now the Timer Job won't execute.  It is scheduled to run every 15 minutes.  I see nothing in the logs for the job and it doesn't show up in the Timer Job Status list.  Is there a way to manually execute the job?  What could be causing this issue?

Custom Timer Job - Running on wrong server?

  

I have a WFE + Index Server farm setup.  I deployed a custom timer job on the WFE, and it's only executing on the Index server.  How do I force a job to run on a specific server?

Also, it's status is 'Failed', but there's nothing in the event log?


Custom SharePoint Timer Job doesn't run after changing code and restart timer services.

  
Hi We are facing an issue that our custom SharePonit Timer Job doesn't run after a changing the code. First, we developed and deployed a timer job. It worked fine for a few days, then we detected a memory leak and killed the OWSTIMER.EXE. (Maybe we should uninstall the timer job and restart the timer services nicely). We fixed the problem, redeployed the fix as a feature (assemblies are re-GACed ...) to our small SharePoint farm (one web server, one services server), restarted the SharePonit Timer Services. Now we can see the time job in Timer Job Definition in Central Admin but the job never runs (Since it doesn't run, the timer job status page doesn't have any info about it). We tried the same process in a dev environment with SharePoint signle box installation. The timer job just works fine. I did some search on Internet and followed some instruction to clear the cache from "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\SharePoint\Config\1d50d73c-9bf1-4444-85a9-910ed050d1bf" by 1. Remove all the xml2. Clear the cache.ini with "1".3. restart the timer services. It still doesn't fix the problem.Please advise what else I can do. I even rename the timer job and redeploy it. It doesn't help. I checked the even log and SharePoing log and couldn't see anything wrong. Our OS is W2K8.         public override void FeatureActivated(SPFeatureReceiverProperties properties)        {

Custom Timer Jobs in Farm Features but not Job Definitions.

  
I have 2 custom jobs activated in MOSS 2007. They both show up in CA under Manage Farm Features but they do not show up in Timer Job Definitions.  One of the jobs are the MSDN SharePoint Warmup Job and the other is a custom one I wrote. I thought that my code was wrong but I downloaded the warmup job and installed/activated it. and it is the same way. Any Suggestions?

Custom Timer Job not working on multi-server farm

  

I created a timer job based on Andrew Connell's tutorial. I ran this timer job on my development server, and it works perfectly. When I deployed it to our testing server, which is a multi-server farm with one wfe, it doesn't seem to work.

Here is what I have tried so far to get the timer job to work on our test server, based on other posts in this forum, and other tutorials I read on the web.

  • I made sure to stop and restart the timer job every time I change the solution
  • I have logged-in with the farm account on my test server to deploy and activate the feature
  • I have checked the timer job status in Central Admin, it says the timer job ran on the wfe with a status of Succeeded, and a progress of 100%
  • I have checked the SharePoint logs, I see "Start invoke timer job" with my timer job name, and usually the next line or two reads "End invoke timer job"
  • In the execute method, I am now telling it to write to the Sharepoint Logs that it has started, but this line never appears in the logs

I assume that since this is the first time writing a timer job, I am obviously missing something that my solution needs to run on a multi-server farm. I even played with the SPJobLockType, but no luck, it is currently set to ContentDatabase. Do I need to add code that tells my timer jo

Making the custom webservices running under _layouts

  

Hi All,

 

 I am trying to make our custom webservices available under Sharepoint _layouts folder, I will have a subfolder under _layouts and dll's in GAC and one GAC in the 80\bin folder. I don't have any safecontorls in the web.config, without them also my webservices are working fine. I want to make this folder structure in the sharepoint WSP and this wsp will be created programatically on the fly. My problem when I am trying to create a wsp, my wsp is not including the dll in the 80\bin folder which says it has copy in the GAC folder so it's skipping. But without that DLL, my webservices are not available and I always get source.ashx httpHandler cannot be loaded. 

 

Can I put this DLL in different folder and want to access my webservices.

 

Thanks in advance.

 


System.Media - SoundPlayer PlayLooping() - Error When Another Timer Is Running

  

Recently I had a problem using SoundPlayer PlayLooping method.

Below is my problem and the solution I have found.

Hope this will help anybody with similar issues.

The issue is that as this is essentially a timer, if anther timer is operating at the same time the other timer will somehow interfere and the sound player will loose its file and playback computer noise.  A way around this seems to be to construct a manual timer for looping back the sound.

timer_LoopRinging.Enabled = true;

private void timer_LoopRinging_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)

{

      SoundPlayer player = new

Custom Timer Job does not really work

  

Hi

I made a custom timer job to export some date in excel files. It works really good on my developmet computer.

I installed the solution on the customer’s server and activated the features. The timer job was well created. After that, I would test the job and I pushed the button “execute now” in Central Administration. After a few seconds I found a new entry in my Job History with the successfully finished job.

Timer jobs not running in QA farm

  

 

I created a custom timer job. I deployed it and tried it in my dev farm and everything runs fine. However,  the job doesn't do anything in the QA farm. I say this because in Central Admin, the status of the job is succeeded, but I have no entries in the logs and the list that this job is supposed to fill is empty. I thought it was something with that specific job. So, I created a new one that only has an assert to false so it displays a pop up as soon as it runs. Guess what? The job says initialized ans its completeness is set to 0%. No pop up shown.  

 

For soem reason this Farm is not running custom timer jobs. This is in MOSS 2007
