Scheduled Crawls Don’t Execute

Issue:

SharePoint 2010 search crawls not executing when scheduled. Crawls are able to be executed manually, but don’t execute when their next scheduled time arrives.

Resolution:

Clear the time cache. The cache is located on the Search Server at C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\SharePoint\Config\GUID. Delete all of the files EXCEPT the cache.ini file.

Order of steps:

  1. Stop the timer service
  2. Copy the GUID folder to another location as a backup.
  3. Delete all of the files except the cache.ini file.
  4. Open the cache.ini file in notepad and change the numbers just a value of 1. Save the file.
  5. Restart the timer service.
