Databases can become corrupted when using STSADM -o MergeContentDB


An important KB article has been released today discussing a problem in WSS which can lead to database inconsistencies when using STSADM -o MergeContentDB.


It is highly recommended to backup as well the source and the destination databases before performing this operation to be able to rollback to a consistent state in case that a problem has occurred.


The KB article also describes a workaround to prevent the problem.
