Use psconfig to to resolve SharePoint warnings in SBS 2011 BPA

After installing a SharePoint update to your SBS 2011 server, you may see one (or both) of the following warnings the next time you run the SBS Best Practices Analyzer (BPA) utility:

Use psconfig.exe to upgrade one or more SharePoint databases (Source: 348)

Use psconfig.exe to upgrade SharePoint (Source: 349)

  To resolve these warnings, it will be necessary for you to manually run the psconfig command, as it is not run automatically after an update has been applied.

  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

Please note: it may take some time for the psconfig command to complete. And, in some cases, if you get any errors, it is recommended to run the above psconfig command again.

After this, please check that your SharePoint sites are working properly, and rerun BPA to confirm that the warning messages have been cleared.
