Last I night I was trying to deploy a custom timer job on production servers, I added solution easily using STSADM, but when I tried to deploy it using CA it returned with deployment status as Failed.
Tried to execute all timer jobs using
stsadm -o execadmsvcjobs it executed the deployment job perfectly and timer job worked perfectly.
Now I needed to upgrade timer job so I tried to retract it (so I can re-add it) as I don't believe in upgrading it as most times it doesn't upgrade properly "Even if you recycle application pools or restart windows timer job", anyway while retract using STSADM it said operation completed when in CA it was saying status as failed again.
In short I tried to retract and deploy solution several times and also tried
enumdeployments for cancellation jobs but at end I couldn't be able to deploy my solution properly
Can someone tell me what could be the problem with WFEs I got two of them.
Please note, its a Don't google it question.
Solution didn't had problem while deploying on Virtual PC, Dev, Int but only Production.
I do have proper permissions and someone else tried it too and had same problem. I tried it on both servers one by one as well but no gain.
