Huh. Looks like I got caught in the "unhandled exception error" web:

Thoughts?

I could always go back to pre-.11, where everything worked as long as the SD servers didn't throw a 500 error...

1.2.5 to the rescue. Ran fine manually just now.

I'll keep an eye out for the SD server errors, and re-evaluate as needed.

Is there any other reason to go beyond 1.2.5 that works, other than trying to work around SD errors that might recover a minute later?

This is not a 500 error ... that would have been logged in the trace.log file. Not sure where it is coming from, but it is while processing the daily schedules. If you do a manual, does it clear? If it does not, clear your cache and try again.

Here is a run I just did for your lineup with no errors.

I would make a suggestion (not related) to change your update time to something other than on the hour or half hour... everybody wants to do that and that means the load on the servers are greater at those times. Changing to 0250 or 0320 will result in quicker update runs.

Feel free to go back to any version you want, they all work. I only have 1.2.6 - 1.2.11 on the server though, so you can't go back any further than that.

yeah, I realize this isn't a 500 error. My point was, the only reason I knew of to go to 1.2.11 was to get the feature that re-tries if it finds a server error. Otherwise, 1.2.5 worked fine. Are there other reasons I'm missing to go past 1.2.5?
