Timer job failing

  Asked By: Sarojini    Date: Jan 19    Category: MOSS    Views: 8343

I'm having a problem with backup on my MOSS server. When I try to run
a backup either on demand from Central Administration or using a
scheduled task, I get the following error:

"The backup/restore job failed. In order to rerun the backup/restore
the timer job must be deleted from the Timer Job Definitions page.
Failure Message: An update conflict has occurred, and you must re-try
this action. The object SPBackupRestoreConfigurationSettings
Parent=SPFarm Name=SharePoint_Config is being updated by {Service
Account}, in the STSADM process, on machine {MyServer}. View the
tracing log for more information about the conflict."

The log has the same error message and the only additional information
is that the process failing is OWSTimer.

I deleted the timer job and tried again with the same result.

Can anybody shine some light on me?

try re-entering the user account the Timer service is running as by
going to Admin Tools >Services > WSS Timer and go to Properties > Log On
tab, and re-enter username/pwd, and then retry.
Then recycle service by right-click WSS Timer and choose Restart..
hope this helps.
