Don’t… Forget… the Admin.. Service… Jobs……..!

Seeing weird behaviour in your SharePoint installation after making changes and just can’t explain it?  Have you tried executing the admin service jobs yet???

For the unaware, that means running this from your command line:

stsadm -o execadmsvcjobs

A lot of times, this will make SharePoint finally “notice” something you’ve changed.  I forgot that lesson until I strugged today with getting it to notice a change in the FieldRef nodes in one of my content types, no matter how many times I monkeyed around with it.

So, in summary, always try the service jobs!  You never know when they just might fix your #%*()#$%ing issue and save you a bunch of time.

Until the next time…
