    Do you know if this would work for Sharepoint 2007 as well? Every day or two our incremental search will get paused and halts all future searches until we resume and finish that crawl. Not sure why this is happening and haven't found much online that speaks to this issue. Your post is about the closest. Thanks, Nelson

    I haven't tried this on SharePoint 2007 to say for sure but I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work with 2007. Hope this helps!

  3. Hi ,
    I deleted the job-delete-timer-job-history accidentally and even the job definition wont show up now.
    what is the easiest method to re create/undelete the job without any downtime.


  4. Run the farm configuration wizard during off hours (will reset IIS and give a 503 in the meantime while it runs) that should recreate the job.

    A little late in repolying but yeah it does work for 2007 as well.

    I too have the same problem with Nintex workflow scheduler timer job. But clearing cache is not helping me to resolve the issue. Any other thoughts?

    Can you tell me how to tell when the cache is about to be full, to prevent this from happening again?
