I have made a change on the account structure where if I validate, it says everything is OK. The I activate, where it goes into activating then draft back again. The batch job shows as completed.
What can be wrong?
Try to see if you get a clear error message when you don't use the batch jobs. Run it directly within the client.
A colleague once run into the same issue. After restarting the machine things worked fine again. Have you already tried that?
