Sharepoint 2010 - User cannot delete a Site or Workspace

If you are running Sharepoint 2010 and you find you cannot delete a site or a workspace, then this could the problem you have. The Site needs to upgrade the content database and this has not been completed yet so the site is not allowed to be completed.

The Sharepoint Content Database will not have been upgraded since SP1 was installed and so you cannot rmeove any sites until this is complete.

Upgrade Content Database


By using the Get-SPContentDatabase cmdlet and then passing this to the Upgrade-SPContentDatabase cmdlet we can pipe the upgrade for every database. I have used the -WhatIf to show what would happen if I ran the cmdlet to make sure I know that the results will be.

Upgrade the Database


When you choose to upgrade the database you will see the progress and then when you choose to delete a site you will be able to do so.
