After installing the latest Cumulative Update for SharePoint 2016, I tried to upgrade content database but It gives an error each time.

100.00% : SPContentDatabase Name=WSS_Content Finalizing the upgrade...

Upgrade-SPContentDatabase : Invalid column name 'TS_LINE_ADDED_IN_TS'. Invalid column name 'TS_LINE_ADDED_IN_TS'. At line:1 char:1 + Upgrade-SPContentDatabase -Identity fe2d6c65-a1d0-49cc-b154-75433ede7 ... + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : InvalidData: (Microsoft.Share...ContentDatabase:SPCmdletUpgradeContentDatabase) [Upgrade -SPContentDatabase], SqlException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPCmdletUpgradeContentDatabase

Have you ever faced with a like that issue before?

Try to do the following:

  • Dismount the content database which has the "Invalid Column" issue.
  • Run the SharePoint Configuration Wizard to get the farm patched successfully.
  • Mount the unmounted database again,
  • Then run the below cmdlet

    Get-SPContentDatabase –Identity WSS_Content_Name | Upgrade-SPContentDatabase

    There was a table which name is MSP_TIMESHEET_LINES and one column was missing in that table, I am not sure why it was missing but after adding this column, it is resolved.

To resolve this issue, you need to upgrade the content database to match the version of the rest of the farm using the PowerShell cmdlet "Upgrade-SPContentDatabase".

Upgrade-SPContentDatabase -Identity <database>
