EPiServer Scheduler Service does not appear to be active. "DemoXFromsPostsGeneratorJob" should have been executed.



One of our custom Scheduled Jobs (under CMS -> Admin Mode -> Scheduled Jobs) gives the following message:

"The EPiServer Scheduler Service does not appear to be active, it may have been stopped. Next job "DemoXFromsPostsGeneratorJob" should have been executed". 


Does this mean that the Scheduler Service has stopped (for whatever reasons, i.e. not necessarily caused by this particular scheduled job) and hence this custom scheduled job does not run anymore? 

And what is DemoXFromsPostsGeneratorJob?

If you are sure you don't need the DemoXfromsPostGeneratorJob job running, disable it via the admin interface.

Occasionally, the database table containing the job queue might get corrupted and prevent other jobs from running. You might need to clear the queue or reset the execution date as described here: You will need database access to do this (remember, backup!)
