  • Hi,

    The issue occurs to only a particular team project under a Project Collection other team projects under the same collection looks fine.

    Recently i tried creating a new Team Project in the same Project collection but due to some other reason project creation failed and changes were roll backed  by itself soon after this i started getting the above error for a team Project.

    Again i tried the team Project creation(With Same name for the team project as previously which failed) under same collection  and this time it succeeded , soon after this the above error disappeared, any advice for this behavior please?

    TFS version: TFS2012 with Update3

    VS Version: VS 2012 Ultimate Update 3

    Thanks,

    Manish

  • Yes the error disappeared after  creating a successful  team project  under same collection strange behavior have you seen this kind?

    No i didn't clean any cache files.

    After  searching few more blogs i found  saying this is a bug  with TFS 2012 update3 and therefore should be upgraded to update 4. Read More:

    This Update 4 fixes many bugs one of them is what we have seen so far.

    • When you delete a team project, you may receive the following error message when you perform create, read, update and delete operations for workitems:

    TF400013: An unexpected database error occurred. Contact your Team Foundation Server administrator. (Code: 208

    )

    Thanks

  • Hi Manio,

    Thanks for your post.

    Is there any difference between this particular team project and other team projects?

    Have you ever deleted a team project?

    What's the edition of VS you are using?

    According to this feedback, which mentioned the issue has been fixed by a upgrade. Please try to upgrade your TFS 2012 Update 3 to TFS 2012 Update 4, and also upgrade your VS to VS 2012 Update 4.

  • Hi Manish,

    Did you mean the error has gone after creating a successful team project?

    Have you clean the cache files? Maybe the cache files did the trick.
