I've runed the CU October 2011 and Sharepoint Configuration Wizard failed after executing, however the farm build version changed to: 14.0.6112.5000 as expected. In ULS i've seen error: Invalid name 'Webs' I run powershell script:

PS C:\Users\christof> Test-SPContentDatabase -Name WSS_Content -WebApplication http://coffee

and result was:

Test-SPContentDatabase : Invalid object name 'Webs'. At line:1 char:23 + Test-SPContentDatabase <<<< -Name WSS_Content -WebApplication http://coffee + CategoryInfo : InvalidData: (Microsoft.Share...ContentDatabase: SPCmdletCheckContentDatabase) [Test-SPContentDatabase], SqlException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPCmdletCheckCon tentDatabase Blockquote

Now my web is down and I can not rollback it - what I can do? Of course I have restared the machine, iisresets etc and also Upgrade-SPContentDatabase also gives same error as Test-SPContentDatabase.

  • Where you able to figure this out? I'm having the same problem.

  • Sounds like your content database has melted. Hope you have backups!

sometimes if you re-intall the CU it fixes the issue. As a side note, always have a snapshot before you apply any patches

    Just keep in mind that virtual machine snapshots are not supported with SharePoint and in a multi-server farm, will not lead you back to a consistent environment.

  • That is alarming for me as i always suggested my clients to take a snapshot of their VMs (WFE's and APP servers) before doing anything to the farm. Can you please suggest me a MSFT reference on this? Commented Jul 4, 2017 at 13:07
