Could not find stored procedure ‘proc_ar_BumpCacheInvalidationCounter’ error

Filed under: SharePoint,Troubleshooting — Lars Nielsen @ 7:00 pm

Following on from a fresh installation of SharePoint, creating a single web application and an empty site collection, I began to notice errors appearing several times a day in the Application event log:

Event ID:      7888
Task Category: Office Server General
Level:         Error
Keywords:      Classic
User:          N/A
A runtime exception was detected. Details follow.
Message: Could not find stored procedure ‘proc_ar_BumpCacheInvalidationCounter’.

There’s some discussion about this here, and here as well.  The general consensus the error is “Mostly Harmless”.  I even found this script that recreates the stored procedures to stop that error message popping up, but I decided against this approach as it breaches the Golden Rule of SharePoint, Never Modify the Databases!

According to Microsoft support this is a known issue with SharePoint and is related to the fact that the BDC is not active in Standard edition – the error can be safely ignored.  So just create a view of the event log and filter out those errors.
