We have patched two SP2013 farms. One is standard another is enterprise. Both farm's copy-spsite no longer work after patch. The patches are not cumulative update download from SharePoint update official site. The patches were applied by our infrastructure team who have no knowledge on SharePoint.....
After patch it was down but it is fixed after we complete Configuration wizard. Now the Configuration database version is 15.0.4763.1000.
We do not find any obvious problem beside Copy-SPsite no longer do this job. We used to use copy-spsite to duplicate a site collection towards a blank new content db. For now, when we run the same Powershell it looks ok. However actually no content is copied over. In the CA the new site collection is listed but no property is shown when click it. When browse the site it shows:
HTTP/1.1 200 OK Server: Microsoft-IIS/7.5 Date: Tue, 12 Apr 2016 02:00:09 GMT Connection: close
We cannot remove the problematic site collection by remove-spsite. It throw error:
Remove-SPSite : <nativehr>0x80070003</nativehr><nativestack></nativestack>
We have to delete it with follow script:
$site = Get-SPSite http://siteurl $siteId = $site.Id $siteDatabase = $site.ContentDatabase $siteDatabase.ForceDeleteSite($siteId, $false, $false)
We thought maybe SQL server patch level not match. Last week we patched it towards SQL Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 3 and still the same.
Backup-spsite/restore-spsite can do the job. But I wonder why copy-spsite no longer work (and not throwing any error).
How can I fix it? I am considering patch the SharePoint farm but I want to know which level I need. Thanks for your input.
