SharePoint 2013 – SharePoint timer service keeps stopping. RRS feed

  • Question

  • SharePoint timer service keeps stopping on WFE (getting stopped immediately after is start it). it is working fine on App server (my farm has one App server and one WFE).

    Below is the error message in ULS logs before the timer service is being stopped.

        • Adding <<Account>> to local group WSS_ADMIN_WPG.
        • Adding <<Account>> to local group IIS_WPG.

        Below timer job from CA is being aborted every time the timer job is being stopped:-

        • Windows Service "SPTimerV4" Credential Deployment

        I have done the below troubleshooting :

        1. Timer service account that is running the timer job is part of machine administrators group, WSS_ADMIN_WPG group and IIS_WPG on both the servers
        2. Timer service account is present in Local security policies->user rights assignments->Log on as service.
        3. Timer service account is the farm setup account and has dbowner access on all the farm databases (Config, admin content and service app DBs)
        4. Timer service account has the shell admin access.
    • I have restarted the server and ran PSconfig but nothing helped.

      Can you guide me how I can resolve this issue.

  • Try deactivating and activating the publishing feature in all the site collections for all the Web Applications. Usually this happens with developers code issue.

  • Thanks for the reply.

    I have detached all the content DBs. I only have one custom solution and I have removed it as well.
