Problem with scheduler not running


The Scheduler is not running in one of our sites. It works well in dev environment, but not when deployed to live environment.

The only error message we are enable to come over is the following:

2011-02-17 20:56:16,350 ERROR [PipeServerChannel.ListenerMain] Microsoft.Samples.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.Pipe.DBG.Error - 18.3.1 Scheduler error: Unexpected exception caught and hidden Thread was being aborted.

Anyone who knows what causes this?

Seems like the service times out when trying to connect to or create the named pipe. enableScheduler="true" in episerver.config?

If the service is not already running as Local System, try that.

Thanks for the response. The scheduler is set to run i web.config and we just noticed that several other sites on the machine works with scheduled tasks. The search goes on...

Have you tried to debug the scheduler?. Have a look at this blog post below:

Yes, we've tried that. But we got it working by deleting everything in tblscheduleditem and tblscheduleditemlog and restarting the application.
