We have multiple Sharepoint 2007 farms and deploy custom code weekly to the farms.
On one o the farms it is required to run stsadm -o execadmsvcjobs on the Search server in the farm in order for solution deployments to complete deploying.
These are solution recycles that we are running.
This is the only farm this happens on and all farms are identical. In central admin it shows the solution state as deploying.
