Start-SPAdminJob doesn't work

Old one but worth remembering - the Start-SPAdminJob doesn't work as you'd expect - entering the command by itself (and with -Verbose or any other options), you get an error (click the image to expand):

The fix is not really documented - you have to stop the SPAdmin (SharePoint Administration Services through Services.msc or PowerShell), run the cmdlet then start the service again. For 2013, it's:

Net Stop SPAdminV4
Net Start SPAdminV4

Remember too that for now, stsadm -o execadmsvcjobs still works (use the Management Shell so you don't have to change directories).

ALWAYS USE Run as administrator when opening the Management Shell for best results!
