After a fresh deployment of Project Server 2013 we hit a strange issue with jobs not being processed by the queue with the unhelpful status message “waiting to be processed”. After waiting for 15/20 minutes to see if the jobs cleared – which they didn’t – we then went through the following basic troubleshooting steps:
- Restarted Project Queue Service and SharePoint Timer Service across the farm.
- Checked the time was synchronised between the servers.
- Cleared the queue and re-submitted some of the jobs.
- Restarted the entire farm, including DB server.
