Sharepoint 2010 problems when updating

When you update Sharepoint 2010 on in ex. a SBS 2011, you need to run the following command to fix errors.

Often theese is seen:

  • Backup is no longer working due to VSS problems etc.
  • Server can crash unexpectedly 🙁

Manually running PSCONFIG is required after installing SharePoint Foundation 2010 Updates

To cook it down, all you need to do is this:

  1. Open an Administrative command prompt.
  2. Change directory to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\BIN.
  3. Run PSConfig.exe -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -force -cmd applicationcontent -install -cmd installfeatures.

IIS will be down during this, so create a servicewindow if you are also having Exchange on the same server (Like SBS).
