May I know what can be the impact of rerunning SharePoint 2010 configuration wizard? Would I lose any data or the entire central administration 2010? Please let me know what can be the impact since I do not want my farm or any web applications to lose any configuration or data.

why dont you backup your current system and then try re-run Configuration wizard, this way you will experience it and might learn some bits as well :)


If you didn’t modify the default files of the SharePoint server, you can run the Configuration Wizard. The Default files including the content below:

  1. The default files locate in 12 folder(Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12);
  2. SharePoint Content and Configuration Database;
  3. The SharePoint registry information.
  4. And so on.
