SharePoint 2019 psconfig upgrade freezed at task2

This SharePoint 2019 tutorial, we will discuss how to solve psconfig upgrade freezed at task2 error which comes in SharePoint 2019.

Issue: After installing KB4461513 in SharePoint 2019, I have tried to run psconfig upgrade but it got frozen at task2 forever and ever

SharePoint 2019 psconfig upgrade
psconfig upgrade frozen at task2

To fix this issue, open two PowerShell command windows with elevated permissions (run as administrator)

In the first PowerShell command window run the below commands to turn off some services:

  • net stop SPTraceV4;
  • net stop SPWriterV4;
  • net stop SPAdminV4;
  • net stop SPTimerV4;
  • net stop w3svc
SharePoint 2019 psconfig upgrade net stop SPTraceV4
Stopping all the services

As soon as you stop these services, run the PowerShell command below in the second PS window.

stsadm -o setproperty -pn command-line-upgrade-running -pv No
PSConfig.exe -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -wait -force

Once this is done start all the above services at task3 of the psconfig upgrade on the first PS Window.

SharePoint 2019 psconfig upgrade net stop SPWriterV4
Started all the services
SharePoint 2019 psconfig upgrade net stop SPTimerV4
psconfig upgrade completed successfully !!!
