Suddenly, when we attempt to redeploy a solution from central admin > Operations > solutions.. it says Error with no option to redeploy or remove.
Also noticed, in Timer Job Status Application Server Administration Service timer jobs for the two WFEs show up as Failed.
The WFE servers are up and web services on each appear to be fine.
Not sure if related ...
I'm looking at the SharePoint logs on the moss sever and can't seem to find anything during the solution deploymment steps. (#2: Cannot open "Resources.en-US.resx": no such file or folder.)
Am also seeing:
The Execute method of job definition Microsoft.SharePoint.Search.Administration.SPSearchJobDefinition (ID 0baf4ec6-b0d3-488b-8f04-bb7e15cc2ac1) threw an exception. More information is included below. Could not access the Search service configuration database
Looking on logs on one WFEs.. I don't seem much either.. do see errors like:
I only see entries like this:
High Configuring the Search Application web service Url to 'https://xxxx:56738/SharedServices3/Search/SearchAdmin.asmx'. No critical entries.
Some wild guesses.. - at some point since our last deployment, we created sites at the root of the WFE hostname that are not SharePoint sites through IIS. Might MOSS be trying to deploy there? - Recently we deployed some custom DLLs to a few sites only on the WFE. We did not deploy these to the MOSS server. Does that cause a problem?
