​How do I check if the schedule is working? Is there a log file?


​Check the schedules by the timer job performance in Central Administration. Open Central Administration -> Operations (For SharePoint 2007); Central Administration -> Monitioring -> Check Job Status (For SharePoint 2010); click Timer job status in the Global Configuration section. Normally, the AD Information Sync Job started time changes every one or more minutes. If started time does not change for a long time, it may be caused by the following:

  • There are too many profiles or too much Active Directory information to sync;
  • The AD Information Sync Timer Job does not work properly, including several reasons:
  1. Windows SharePoint Services Timer is stopped;
  2. AD Information Sync job is disabled;
  3. There are some other problems with timer job or profiles.

There is no log file to record the schedule details.

Applies for: SharePoint 2013, SharePoint 2010, SharePoint 2007
