SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I was working in SharePoint powerShell and ran the command [Get-SPSite -Limit All] and I get the list of sites as expected, however, One Site shows up twice (see example below);


Should I be seeing teamsite twice?

If Not, how do I correct this?

Command that you provided returns list of all sites from ALL WebApplications. Please, make sure that there is no another site with url "/teamsite" on any another WebApplication.

I have the same problem, where Get-SPSite returns three instances of the same SPSite site collection, ID's and URL's exactly the same. –  Jasper May 29 '13 at 8:45
Could you provide full command's string? –  Andrew May 29 '13 at 12:30
Get-SPWebApplication contoso.com | Get-SPSite | ft Url,Id –  Jasper May 29 '13 at 17:40

To remedy the duplicated site collection issue, you can try dismounting the content database and re-mounting it.

you can get the name of the content database with:

$s = get-spsite http://teamsite
$name = $s.ContentDatabase.Name

Dismount-SPContentDatabase $s.ContentDatabase

Mount-SPContentDatabase -webapplication http://teamsite -name $name
