MOSS 2007: Server error: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink?LinkID=96177

While trying to install WSS 3.0 SP1 (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/office/sharepointserver/bb735839.aspx) the installation get stuck at task 9 of 10 of SharePoint Products and Technology Configuration Wizard. When tried to access the server, encountered the following error:

 

Server error: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink?LinkID=96177

 

When look into the “Event Viewer”, found the following error description:

 

The schema version (3.0.149.0) of the database DATA
DATABASE_NAME on DATABA_SESERVER_NAME is not consistent with the expected database schema version (3.X.X.X) on DATABASE_NAME.  Connections to this database from this server have been blocked to avoid data loss.  Upgrade the web front end or the content database to ensure that these versions match.

 

Resolution:

 

The first thing we did was either remove content database from the web application which are having the error or Detach the database. This doesn’t seem to work. So we run the command

 

stsadm –o upgrade –inplace –url Central_Administration_URL –forceupgrade

 

and we were back in the business J.

    Easier to fix if you don’t inherit applications, but… Make sure that your content DB and configuration DB are on the same server before applying SP!!!

    Same Problem raises, when you install Februray Cummulative Update 2010 on MOSS 2007 SP2 or (!) KB979445

    only stsadm -o upgrade -inplace -url {Central Admin URL} helps, no chance to upgrade the content databases separetly

    Great: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointadmin/thread/cc9efc81-7ab0-4d85-a5b5-b41685c71ae3

    Thanks for the nice post. Your solution works for some servers but for one server, I am getting the following error ” An update conflict has occurred, and you must re-try this action. The object SPFarm Name=SharePoint_config_test is being updated by domain\username, in the OWSTIMER process, on machine sharepointservername. View the tracing log for more information about the conflict.”
    I have also posted my question on the microsoft forum ( http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointadmin/thread/fa980693-9749-451c-8a30-376838a505e8)
    I would appreciate any help on this.

    Thanks…

      Try a stsadm -o execadmsvcjobs on each server then run it again

  15. Pravesh SHarda said

    Just Run the Sharpoint Products and Tech. Configration wizard once :)

    I tried to run SharePoint Configuration wizard but it is giving me following error “An exception of type System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException was thrown.
    Additional information:Login failed for user domain\user”. Please Advise.

      Check for user login and password that is accessing SQL server. Check in CA.

    The command stsadm -o upgrade -inplace -forceupgrade works out for me. However, it did so only once InfoPath2010 was un-installed from the server.

    Hey… how you do that???

    and we were back in the business J

    How and where you do this?? i want to get back to business too!!

    please email me!!!

    • Farhan Faiz said

      Use your database server to do this. We have SQL server 2005 as s our database server and we deattach the database.

      Also, use stsadm from command line.

  19. Many thanks for the post. It worked. Thanks to you and Google!

    Save my Saturday!!!! Thanks from Mexico

    Cheers

  20. Curtasan Levent said

    Worked perfectly, I can’t thank you enough!

  21. Sean Smith said

    It worked thanks, although this type of error/problem is just one example of why Sharepoint is total rubish. No doubt the end user features are great but I can’t help thinking that the design and engineering side of the product rate at about 2/10,,,, cheers

    Hello,

    We are about to install Sharepoint 2010 on a 64bit Server Windows 2008 64 bit… but we are going to set Active Directory on a 32 bit server with Windows server 32 bit.

    my questions are:

    Does any of you know if it is recommended to have Sharepoint Enterprise 2010 and Active Directory installed on the same server? or they have to be on separate servers? Also, do any of you know if there is any conflict in communication between Windows Server 2008 32Bit and Windows Servers 2008 64 Bit?

    Thanks,

    Yenko
