Minor version limit exceeded RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am getting following error message on my SharePoint Server

    Minor version limit exceeded

    You must first publish a major version before editing this document.
    Troubleshoot issues with Windows SharePoint Services.

    Can anyone help me how to solve this problem ? Any help in this regard will be greatly appreciated.

     

    Regards

  • Check the number of minor versions you have for these docs. By default, each major version can have 511 minor versions but this is configurable by the site admins.

    Delete a few minor verions from the version history of the document.

  • Dear Dip,

    Thanks for the reply. How we can configure minor versions from the site admin ?

  • Go to the document library --> Settings --> Document Library Settings --> Versioning Settings

    Under Document Version History section, check the option for "Keep drafts for the following number of major versions". Enter the number of versions that you want to keep.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks,
    Dip

  • Dear Dip,

    Let me describe the issue in detail

    Actually problem is occurring with InfoPath form published on SharePoint Form library. Out of 100 infopath forms, there are 2-3 forms which show minor version error message . When I check version of the faulty form it displays me the error. Hardly there are 10-15 major version and only 1-2 minor versions of the form of the faulty InfoPath form.

    Now what Versioning setting will you recommend in our case?

     

    Regards..

  • Received the err. in SharePoint Designer 2013 while editing a master page. 

    Was able to fix my issue with the following:

    1) Navigate browser to Site Settings -> Master page layouts...

    2) Hovered over Master page

    3) Checked in a Major version
