SharePoint SP2 Crash

I've come across this error today,

[SPDatabaseGbwSequence] [ERROR] [4/30/2009 10:43:38 AM]: Upgrade object too new (build version =, schema version = Current server (build version =, schema version =

During the SharePoint wizard running after installing WSS and MOSS Sp2. The site still functions. Im looking into what hotfix has been installed that caused the schema to be upgraded and why SP2 is using the old schema. The install failed but the sites still function. Watch this space and I will let you know of a fix/workaround.



Found the problem. It was GroupBoard. When you install Group Board it updates the schema. The fix is simple, uninstall group board, re-run the wizard, re-install GroupBoard and the problem is gone.

If you go to you can see the fix. Only the German technet site talks about the error, the english one ( doesn't have the exact error message.

If that doesn't work, try forcing the upgrade by ding the following:

  • "STSADM.EXE -o upgrade -inplace -forceupgrade –url http://site" for each web application you have.
  • then run wizard "psconfig -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -wait –force"

remember you have to uninstall the template from add/remove programs.
