Lately the Application Server Administration Service Timer Job does not complete on one WFE and runs long on the other WFE. Since it does not fail I do not see an error logged. What could cause this job to run, but not complete or fail?


  • can you make sure SharePoint Admin services is running on both WFE...from Services console. – Waqas Sarwar MVP Jun 30 '15 at 18:39
  • The SharePoint Admin service is running on both WFE servers. Thanks – BobC Jun 30 '15 at 18:45
  • did you see any error in the Event log, becuase if it is running long then it will cause a problem for farm. – Waqas Sarwar MVP Jun 30 '15 at 18:50
  • how long it is running? – Waqas Sarwar MVP Jun 30 '15 at 18:51
  • Three hours on one WFE and one on the second WFE. They have run longer, but I restarted the SharePoint Timer Service after making some changes that I thought would help this issue. – BobC Jun 30 '15 at 18:54
