I have a medium server farm with two front end web servers. I'm a bit perplexed about a problem I've had with one of the servers. When I go to Central Administration > Operations > Timer Job Status I see that the Immediate Alerts service has failed with a status date of 10/9/2007. However, the other web server shows the status updating every 5 minutes as expected. I have disabled and reenabled alerts for the servers, both in Applications and using the stsadm command line tool. I have also changed the frequency of the alerts and even attempted to update the alert templates. I have restarted the server and I still get no update to the status date. It seems there is nothing that will tell the first server to kick off and retry running the timer job.

Has anyone experience this and is there a way to instruct a specific server in the farm to run a timer job

Thanks!

Oh, let me add that this started after a power failure in our server room.

Have you found the problem or anyone have any ideas

Immediate Alerts says Failed 100% 10/15/2007 on the Timer Job Status screen. I've restarted the SharePoint Timer Job Service on each web box. Any ideas how to kick the Immediate Alert to start up again on the one web server

Thanks

I've restarted the Time Services on both of my web boxes but it didn't fix it--still says Failed--but they work.

Another problem I'm working with is the alerts are not working for any of my SharePoint 2003 portals. It started when I upgrade the Shared Services to SharePoint 2007, would this prevent alerts to work on portals using SharePoint 2003
