Troubleshooting Microsoft CRM Asynchronous process jobs

1.       If any of the job’s status has changed from “Publishing” to “Unpublished”, most likely there are exceptions that caused the job to fail.

a.       Run the SQL script to understand the cause

USE Microsoft_MSCRM


SELECT Name, ErrorCode, Message, *

FROM AsyncOperation

WHERE OperationType = 7


Message column should contain more descriptive message than what is displayed in the MS CRM UI.  If this still is unclear then

b.      Enable MS CRM Tracing by following instructions from the support link

Create three registry keys

TraceEnabled = 1

TraceDirectory = <CRM InstallPath>\CRMTrace

TraceRefresh = 0

2.       Understanding how many records still needs to be processed per Duplicate Detection Rule

a.       MS CRM generates tables with random names to store match code.

USE Microsoft_MSCRM


SELECT Name, MatchingEntityMatchCodeTable, *

FROM DuplicateRule

n  Example


FROM account

WHERE accountId NOT IN (SELECT ObjectId FROM <MatchingEntityMatchCodeTable from Duplicate Rule table>)

Similarly we can troubleshoot Microsoft CRM Workflows and other Asynchronous Jobs
