A Restore Operation of a SharePoint 2007 Web Application Completes with an Error Message
Article ID: SP0010 A restore operation of a SharePoint 2007 web application completes with an error message.
A restore operation of a SharePoint web application completes with the following error message:
SPUpdatedConcurrencyException: An update conflict has occurred, and you must re-try this action. The object SPWebApplication Name=[WebApp_name] is being updated by [user_account], in the OWSTIMER process, on machine [machine_name]. View the tracing log for more information about the conflict.
The restore operation fails when a conflict occurs because multiple timer jobs are running against a web application.
To run a restore operation, complete the following steps:
- Stop the SharePoint Timer Service.
- If any partially restored web applications exist, delete them.
- Start the SharePoint web application restore operation.
- After the restore operation is complete, restart the SharePoint Timer Service.
