Solution deployment stuck on deploying: SharePoint 2013


Solution deployment is the task that we do on daily basis. This is the task in which SharePoint developer and administrator works in proper co-ordination.

Problem description-
I was deploying the solution in our production environment and faced some strange issue. When I add a solution using PowerShell command its says operation completed successful.
Add-SPSolution –LiteralPath "\name of the wsp” is stored"

So the next stage is install solution, I executed the following command
Install-SPSolution -Identity "name of the solution.wsp" -WebApplication http://sharepointplanet.galaxy.com –GACDeployment

I checked the statuses of the solution in central administration->system settings->manage farm solutions and the status never changes from deploying.

By means of this article, I will try to share the resolution worked for me and possible recommendations you can try to resolve this issue completely.

Resolution worked for me-
It turned out that one of our servers on which we have stopped the timer service + World Wide Web publishing service due to patches incompatibility and it was waiting on this server to complete.  If you have more than one server in your farm ensure that the SharePoint TIMER services are running on all.

How you can check the above-
1.   On any server->start->run->services.msc->enter->this will open the services console.

2.   Now type s-> this will give you all the services that start with S->look for SharePoint timer service and make sure it’s in started mode.

3.   This service should be started on all the front ends as well as application server.

Possible Resolutions-
1.   Make sure SharePoint timer service should be started on all the servers (web front ends as well as app server)
2.   Try restarting the SharePoint Administration service on all the servers.
3.   Restart all the SharePoint servers
4.   Make sure that all the servers in farm are on the same time zone.
5.   Execute stsadm -o execadmsvcjobs on all the servers of the farm
6.   Cancel the deployment job by means of central administration, remove the solution and try to add the solution again & check the results.
7.   Check the status of the jobs by means of CA-timer job status or use te following command - stsadm -o enumdeployments   - This will give you the list of all the pending & active deployments.

After trying all the steps, nothing works then please checks the logs and find out the root cause.

In case of any problems with respect to logs then please share here so that I can help you out!

I hope the above information will be helpful to deploy the solution successfully. Thank you.

If you have any queries/questions regarding the above mentioned information then please let me know, Thank you.
