Simple question but I don't have clarification on it.
I have the following server roles in my farm:
- 2 WFE
- 2 APP
- 1 Search
Should SPTimerV4 be started only on APP servers or on all servers?
The SharePoint Timer Service is a crucial component for each server in the farm and should be running on every server.
Excerpt from a related and very informative MSDN blog post:
If the Timer Service or any of its instances on servers begins to malfunction, it won't take long for problems to begin appearing across the farm.
