When a WSP gets stuck in "Deploying"

Recently, I was involved in deploying two solution packages I had created.  The farm administrator had just used the the Solution Management page in Central Admin to deploy the packages globally, and the status was "Deploying" but more than the usual amount of time went by and it was still listed as Deploying. 

To resolve this, we first ran stsadm -o execadmsvcjobs on the server running Central Admin.  No change.  We then ran stsadm -o execadmsvcjobs on each member of the farm that had OWS Timer (sptimerv3) on it (everything included Reporting Sevices Servers, but not the database servers used only on the back end).

At this point, one solution package completed, but the other still did not.  We restarted the  OWS Timer Service (sptimerv3) on each member in the farm (again, everything that had OWS Timer on it).  At that point, both packages completed their deployment and all was well.



Alternte Resolution

I believe that another way you can resolve this issue is to open the list of timer jobs and cancel the ones that are stopped up.  In the past, I've had the situation you describe occur and I simply deleted the timer jobs and re-deployed the solution.

Deploying fo ApplcationTemplateCore.wsp

I am trying to deploy ApplicationTemplateCore.WSP, I followed the instruction to the T, but the status is stuck in Deploying.  What do I need to do for this status to show Deployed?

Re: Deploying ApplicationTemplateCore

Did you try the steps described above?
1) Run stsadm -o execadmsvcjobs  on your CA server.
2) Run stsadm -o execadmsvcjobs on all the farm members that have stsadm.
4)Restart the Timer Service on all farm members.
5)If still not resolved, then try deleting the timer job that is causing the problem.

This worked for me

Reboot Server (in line with my "If in doubt, restart it!" motto). This in effect will restart all the services anyway.
Use the following command to get a list of all solutions that are being deployed.
stsadm -o enumdeployments
Use the JobId GUID that comes back from this e.g. Deployment JobId="e99b7304-cfc0-419a-a3f2-18ca5193c838"
Cancel the "stuck" deployment (in "Deploying" status" with the following command
stsadm -o canceldeployment -id e99b7304-cfc0-419a-a3f2-18ca5193c838
Delete the stuck solution once and for all with
stsdm -o deletesolution -name mysolution.wsp -override
Redeploy your solution.
