Last Updated: May 03, 2016 01:54PM CEST

PROBLEM


Error when backing up a Windows SBS 2011 server.
Application Event log on the SBS 2011 server shows Event ID 8230 (spfarm, spsearch) :

CAUSE


If Sharepoint Service Pack 1 is installed on SBS 2011, this extra step is needed for backups to be successful. The user must run the “psconfig” command to fix Sharepoint and backups
