SharePoint 2007 Default Timer Jobs

No comments January 1st, 2011

Most SharePoint farms in production have many customizations, applications, and 3rd party software added to them.  Sometimes they are added through a change process and other times they sort of slip through the cracks and get installed. 

Lately many clients I’ve been working with are going through audits where they need to verify which timer jobs are default and which ones have been added since the deployment of the farm.  This is easy to ascertain if you deployed your farm yesterday or today, but if you have a long standing production farm, the simpliest way to figure out which timer jobs are default is to have a list of them, so here it is:
