I've just found that my WSS 3.0 server had two OWSTIMER.EXE services running:
- SharePoint Timer Service
"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\60\BIN\OWSTIMER.EXE"
- Windows SharePoint Services Timer
"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\BIN\OWSTIMER.EXE"
Since I'm running WSS v3, I was expecting to have only one SharePoint Timer instance, and that should be the one in th "12" folder.
Should I just stop the other service and keep only the "Windows SharePoint Services Timer" (v12) running?
