Today we came across with a situation where we keep getting a runtime error when we try to perform our normal day-today operations in our SharePoint 2013 based solution. It started throwing a runtime error with a error code - HRESULT: 0x80131904 and it failed to save data into the SharePoint database.
The reason was the SharePoint Configuration database LOG file has grown to 91 GB and there was not enough free space in the physical disk. Because of this, SharePoint was unable to commit database changes and there was a huge performance impact. The solution we found was:
- Change the recovery model for the Database from Full to Simple
- Shrink the database
I executed the following SQL command and it brought the database log file from 91GB to 1 MB which solved my issues.
ALTER DATABASE[SharePoint_Config] SET RECOVERY SIMPLE WITH NO_WAIT
DBCC SHRINKFILE ('SharePoint_Config_Log')
