Error “Admin SVC must be running in order to create deployment timer job”

Leave a comment

Hi All,

While Deploying a WSP solution into a WebApplication in Powershell. You may face the issue or error as:

Admin SVC must be running in order to create deployment timer job”

To rectify it:

Just go to Enable the Services of SharePoint Administrator.

Go To Command Prompt and Type Services.msc. You will see a window contains all the list of services running.

Enable “SharePoint 2010 Administration” service.

Service name: SPAdminV4
Display Name: SharePoint 2010 Administration

Once you have Enabled or Started it that the command will run smoothly.


Change Account display name of sharepoint user

We can use  powershell command to change sharepoint user display name.   Set-SPuser -identity “User name” -DisplayName “Display Name” -web Web url  

Eg: Set-SPuser -identity “i:0#.f|fwamembershipprovider|kdc1” -DisplayName “kdc1” -web http://xyz:117/

In case you get access denied while changing the display name, run powershell as administrator/Farm admin.
