I am working on a 7.1.3bsu2 build out and BAT is giving me a hard time. Whenever I create a bulk job it is stuck in "Pending" status. I have tried to active and stop/start the job(s) to no avail. The only thing that works is restarting the Bulk Provisioning service. I do have the appropriate services activated. However, all jobs appear to get stuck. I have not seen this problem on a 7.1.3bsu2 system before.
I have tried deactivating and then reactivating the service.
I haven't seen this issue before. I just tested a BAT job on the same version and it ran fine. The next step would be to enable detailed Bulk Provisioning Service (BPS) traces and then reproduce the problem and take a look at the logs.
