SharePoint Database Schema Update After installing SharePoint patches

Error Description: The mount operation for the gatherer application   has failed because the schema version of the search gatherer database is less than the minimum backwards compatibility schema version supported for this gatherer application. The database might not have been upgraded.

 

  • Launch an elevated (Run as Administrator) SharePoint 2013 Management shell from start, All Programs, Microsoft SharePoint 2013 Products, SharePoint 2010 Management Shell.
  • Once the shell opens, type the following command followed by enter:
    (get-spserver $env:computername).NeedsUpgrade

 

If the result of this command is True, then you need to complete the steps below. If the result is False then no further action is needed,

 

In order to update the SharePoint databases, you must manually run the PSconfig utility. To run the utility:

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
