An update conflict has occurred, and you must re-try this action.
We are running MOSS 2007 Enterprise and I just applied WSS and MOSS SP2 to our environment. Both updates completed successfully but I am getting an error when running the SharePoint Configuration Wizard to complete the update: An update conflict has occurred, and you must re-try this action. The object SPServer Name=ServerName Parent=SPFarm Name=PORTAL_CONFIG is being updated by Domain\Account, in the OWSTIMER process, on machine ServerName What can I do??

Hi, Your behavior/symptoms are very similar to the one describe at number 4 in this article http://blogs.msdn.com/b/pmanchan/archive/2009/09/01/build-to-build-b2b-upgrade-of-the-sharepoint-environment-part-2.aspx The Configuration Wizard Fails at step 4 with the following message: An exception of type Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPUpdatedConcurrencyException was thrown. Additional exception information: An update conflict has occurred, and you must re-try this action. The object DiagnosticsService Parent=SPFarm Name=<config DB> is being updated by Domain\User, in the w3wp process, on machine <machine name>. View the tracing log for more information about the conflict. Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPUpdatedConcurrencyException: An update conflict has occurred, and you must re-try this action. The object DiagnosticsService Parent=SPFarm Name=<config DB> is being updated by Domain\User, in the w3wp process, on machine <machine name>. View the tracing log for more information about the conflict. Resolution: =========== Clear the config cache. Refer KB 939308 for the steps for clearing the cache.ini Re-run the following command to perform the upgrade: psconfig -cmd upgrade -inplace -b2b -force -wait Hope it helps you, MarioMon Blog/My Blog (in french) LinkedIn

Just curious, why do we want to run psconfig instead of the GUI version of the config wizard?

In your situation, you could run the config wizard or psconfig and the result will be the same. Why ? Because this command is automatically run when you run the SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard if the product has to be upgraded. Mon Blog/My Blog (in french) LinkedIn

Thank you so much for solution, which a couple of years after you suggested it, saved me :)
