I want to run a timer job named "Information Management Policy", so I went to "Central Administration" >> "Job Definition". Then I ran the timer job manually, but it showed "N/A" beside the last run time, as follow:-


Now I did these steps without being able to fix the problem :-

  • Restart the Timer service (Start->Administrative Tools->Services) and IIS.

  • I run the products configuration wizards.

Now I run this command :-

Start-SPTimerJob -Id dfd14b52-866a-4726-8149-5359638ffb35

    Let's launch the job manually and monitor ULS logs. Those you posted are related to other services, not what we're investigating.The page you screenshotted originally usually has this part in URL: /_admin/JobEdit.aspx?JobId=bd814d1e%2De46a%2D4bff%2D90c6%2Da389e83691c2&Source=. Get that GUID between '=' and '&', replacing "%2D" with "-" if present. Then open SP 2013 Management Shell, and execute Start-SPTimerJob -Id _GUID_. Now check logs for lines containing Entering monitored scope (Timer Job from 'OWSTIMER.EXE' – Aziz Kabyshev Feb 16 '16 at 23:42
