    Many thanks. When I have created a new PWA instance it is taking time to provision databases, it is normal that it takes time to do that?

    It is Microsoft's recommendation to create (each) PWA site in its own dedicated content database. They provide instructions on how to "lock" other DBs when PWA is instantiated.

    Our installation has 150 content DBs. I have 3 avenues to implement dedicated content DB recommendation from msft:

    1. Forget it – let it go to whatever content DB.

    2. Run a PowerShell script that will change maxsitecollection count setting for all content DBs (lock) and similar script to unlock

    3. Instantiate PWA w-out locking content databases, back up and restore into the right dedicated content DB.
