Can't remove solutions

  Asked By: Joseph    Date: Dec 17    Category: MOSS    Views: 1472

I have two solutions that are stuck in pending mode. How do I get rid of them?

I tried to delete the solutions and get the following error:
Inner exception(1): Unable to retract solution
Inner exception(2): Error while trying to kill running jobs.
Inner exception(3): Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Answer #2    Answered By: Luke Davis     Answered On: Dec 17

One of my farms gets stuck with the solutions in either "Deploying" or
"Retracting" mode and I am able to fix it using the steps below. Not sure if
that might apply in your situation as well.

stsadm -o enumdeployments will give you the job id of your stuck deployment
stsadm -o canceldeployment -id <yourid>

When I try to cancel the deployment I get the following error:

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
