All timer jobs on my server runs exactly three time. Not more not less. I noticed this when I created my own custom timer job. My custom job and all other sharepoint's jobs runs exactly three time. I tried to set SPJobLockType.ContentDatabase to SPJobLockType.Job but it didn't help. Here is a screenshot that shows the history of the jobs. All runs three time. What should I do at least make mine to run only once?

  • Is the Server and Web Application rows for each group of 3 the same? – Jussi Palo Apr 16 '15 at 8:45
  • how many web application, Content Database and Server in the farm? – Waqas Sarwar MVP Apr 16 '15 at 12:34
  • also try one more thing, from central admin > application Management > Manage Content DB....click on the database name and at the bottom of the page select a server where you run the timer jobs. test it now. – Waqas Sarwar MVP Apr 16 '15 at 12:36
