Our server went down & when I rebooted, all is working on site except Access Database-linked forms are not working.

It is showing following error:

> Preparing Site ...  Someone has recently made changes to this site and
> the site is being updated. If the site remains offline for an extended
> period of time, contact a site owner.  Wait a moment and refresh your
> browser

Nothing happens further. Any help is appreciated.

Try checking the ULS logs at the time you're accessing the site - you might get more information out of them. – Dennis G Feb 12 '13 at 20:09

This solves mine

  1. Create a Access Service Application (Central Administration –-> Manage Service Applications –-> New –-> Access Services)
  2. Started the Access Database Service (Central Administration –-> Manage Services on Server)

Now open the SharePoint 2010 Management Shell and enter:

enable-spSessionStateService –DataBaseName

This creates a session state database and turns on the session state service.
