Background. We have 2 independent servers both running Tridion. Until recently we used one of them (PROD Tridion) for production and the other one (TEST Tridion) to publish the content to the local environments. We have now decided to retire TEST Tridion and instead create another publication on PROD Tridion which will be used for testing purposes.
Issue. While we can still successfully publish to our prod servers, it fails if we attempt to publish to our local test environment. No errors or exceptions in the cd_transport, cd_core, or cd_deployer log files.
When looking at the "Tridion.ContentManager.Publisher" log file the last output before it hangs is "Writing file:
c:\Temp\tcm_0-1816713-66560.Content\Pages\blabla\blabla.xhtml". Nothing happens after that.
However, if we simply restart the Tridion CMS, the page that has been in the queue gets published without us doing anything.
What could be the issue here and why does it work if we restart Tridion?
