Troubleshooting Alerts RRS feed

  • Question

  • THis is a follow up to an earlier question.

    I'm having an issue with Alerts on a SharePoint Foundation 2010 site.

    Confirmation of the Alert email is sent, but follow up Alerts on additions/edits to the list are not.

    Checking the Job Definitions, I can see that the Immediate Alerts for each site hasn't been run since 1/9/12. I have repeatedly clicked "Run Now" but it just puts me back on the Job Definitions page without updating. This is true of all sites on the server.

    I'm finding http://sharepointalert.info/troubleshooting-sharepoint-alerts/ quite helpful.

    My issue brought me to


    I have successfully run the following without issue:

    • STSADM -o getproperty -url http://myurl -pn alerts-enabled
    • STSADM -o getproperty -url http://myurl -pn job-immediate-alerts
    • stsadm -o updatealerttemplates -url http://myurl -f "c:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\14\TEMPLATE\XML\alerttemplates.xml" -LCID 1033
    • stsadm -o setproperty -url http://myurl -pn alerts-enabled -pv False
    • stsadm -o setproperty -url http://myurl -pn alerts-enabled -pv True
    • stsadm -o setproperty -url http://myurl -pn job-immediate-alerts -pv “Every 5 minutes between 0 and 59"

    Any suggestions of where to go/check from here?
