Job stays in the "awaiting execution" state in Talend Administration Center


While launching a Job execution from Talend Administration Center, the Job stays in the "awaiting execution" state.



All Operating Systems with Talend Administration Center running on Tomcat and the execution server on MySQL.



This issue is due to an incompatibility with the MySQL driver used by Tomcat. To solve this issue:

  1. Stop Tomcat.
  2. Go to the endorsed folder in your Tomcat installation directory.
  3. Replace the MySQL driver. For example, replace mysql-connector-5.1.38-bin.jar with mysql-connector-5.1.23-bin.jar.
  4. Restart Tomcat.

Note: If adding the Jar file to the endorsed folder doesn't work, add it and any future Jar files to the lib folder instead.
