I created a timer job which will send a mail to all the user.It was working fine in dev server.So ,I change the "SITE URL" in SOLUTION properties to prod server url(http://*_prod) and added solution by power shell and deployed it in prod using CA.It deployed with no issue but feature was not activated by default.

I tried to activate feature manually from "Site setting -- > site collection feature" but I received error saying "Unexpected error occurred".

I have "full control" on web application and scope of timer job is "Site".

Please guide me to move forward.

Timer jobs are deployed at Webapplication level. Try changing the scope to "Web Applciation".

  • I will do and let you know.But my question is same configuration ran in dev server were I created the timer job.The only thing I changed is "Site URL" in solution properties. – user1939336 Jun 11 '14 at 14:44
  • Can you share your feature activation code? – Aanchal Jun 11 '14 at 14:49
  • public override void FeatureActivated(SPFeatureReceiverProperties properties) { SPSite site = properties.Feature.Parent as SPSite; CreateJob(site); // Create new Job } private static void CreateJob(SPSite site) { SPTimerJob job = new SPTimerJob(JobName, site.WebApplication); job.Update(); } – user1939336 Jun 11 '14 at 15:04
  • public SPTimerJob(string jobName, SPWebApplication webapp) : base(jobName, webapp, null, SPJobLockType.Job) { this.Title = "SPTimer Job"; } – user1939336 Jun 11 '14 at 15:06
  • I tried by changing the scope to Web application but issue remains same and I looked into logs it says "access denied".Suggest me on this .... – user1939336 Jun 12 '14 at 7:00
