The Execute method of job definition Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPSqmTimerJobDefinition (ID d470d42a-3a3e-46c2-8c54-98a33d11bec7) threw an exception. More information is included below.
Data is Null. This method or property cannot be called on Null values.
This error is obviously caused by the SharePoint Timer Service. This job doesn’t run properly because the data is Null. To find the cause of the error you’ll first have to find the Time Job that is causing it. In my case it was the CEIP Data Collection (Customer Experience Improvement Program).
- Go to the SharePoint Central Administration
- Click Monitoring
- Then click Review job definitions in the Timer Jobs section
- Find the Job that is causing the exception by hovering over the links and checking the GUID in there
- Click the job and click Disable
The error should now be gone!
