Error in the application after server OS is migrated from Windows 2012 to Windows 2016

We have recently migrated a SQL server instance server OS from Windows 2012 R2 to Windows 2016 server. The SQL server version on the server is maintained as MS SQL server 2012 (SP3) standard edition (64 bit)



After the upgrade, the java application hosted on the application server is throwing the below error -
There was a database error or concurrent use of the same folder or object.

What could be the root cause of this issue ? Any suggestions to possibly fix with the OS migration or reconfiguration of the database SQL instance. ?

That is not a SQL Server error. Without more information, it is impossible to guess as to the problem.

Hi @sajanpillai-1667

You should check your error log for more information

You can try to use DMA (Data Migration Assistant) to migrate SQL Server.

You need to provide more information than that single error message, the wording in the error message is to vague to speculate what is the problem, its a little bit like it is either the database or something totally different, if you read it.

Is this an inplace upgrade of the Windows OS? Or is this a totally new machine?
