Please provide me stsadm command to disable timer job in sharepoint 2007 I want to disable not delete so that in future I can enable it again if required


Checking the list of ststadm operations seems that there is no stsadm command for disabling a timer job. There is only a command to delete a timer job (deletessptimerjob).

In that case you are left with two options:

  1. Disable the timer job using the UI in Central Administration (Central Administration -> Operations -> Job Definitions)
  2. Disable the timer job programmatically

    SPJobDefinitionCollection jobDefs = webApp.JobDefinitions;
    foreach (SPJobDefinition jobDef in jobDefs)
        if (jobDef.DisplayName == "YourTimerJobName")
            jobDef.IsDisabled = true;
