This is the farm configuration:
1. SQL Server 2005 back end server
2. WSS 3.0 / MOSS 2007 WFE Server
3. WSS 3.0 / MOSS 2007 Index/WFE Server
All servers are showing the version: 184.108.40.20627 in 'Servers in Farm' in C.A.
When attempting to add a new content database, the following error is thrown in the web UI:
The specified SPConfigurationDatabase Name=SharePoint_Config-New Parent=SPDatabaseServiceInstance has been upgraded to a newer version of SharePoint. Please upgrade this SharePoint application server before
attempting to access this object.
Furthermore the following is posted to the application event log on the WFE hosting central admin:
Database 'SharePoint_Config-New' on SQL Server instance 'XXXXXXXX' is not empty and does not match current database schema.
There is nothing of further interest in the trace log, just the same error as above.
No errors on the SQL server either.
Also no updates have been installed, and content databases HAVE been created since the last updates were installed 2 years ago.
Can anyone suggest anything before I raise a call with MS?
I have checked permissions for the sharepoint system account on the databases and all seems fine.
