Restoring SharePoint databases with other schema (SharePoint 2010)

by on Aug.17, 2011, under SharePoint 2010, SharePoint Foundation

I just started out today to restore some Content Databases to test out my new created features on my development environment, to check if everything works as planned. But yet, I’ve figured out that I had some issues creating and deleting sites.

So I checked the ULS logs and nothing to see, I checked event viewer and also there no errors containing the message which I had: “Supported method not found” or something in that other.

Well I remember when I installed Service Pack 1 of SharePoint Server 2010 and tried to remove a site I had the same message. This was related to some bug or something. So I installed June CU Refresh and that worked perfectly. Well in this case I had both installed, so that shouldn’t be the problem.

So I checked the status of my Content Databases and what I noticed was that the schema version of the database wasn’t the same version as June CU Refresh. And the message was that I could update. Also the strange notice is that my Content Databases aren’t updated when you restore a database and attach it to SharePoint.

So what I did was run with powershell the following script:

$contentdb = Get-SPContentDatabase | Where-Object {$_.Name -match "WSS_ContentDB" }
Upgrade-SPContentDatabase -Identity $contentdb

Voila, content database is getting updated.
