Data Base in Read-only mode RRS feed

  • Hi All,

    We created out new SharePoint 2019 Farm of 3 SharePoint Servers and 2 SQL Servers (Cluster). When I try to create a new web application I get an error:

    Cannot update database on SQL Server instance '<servername>'.  Database is read/only. Additional error information from SQL Server is included below.  Failed to update database "SharePoint_AdminContent_<GUID>" because the database is read-only.

    We checked but the data is not read-only and the status is (Synchronizing) as it should be. We have no idea what the problem is but we also get a warning on the Central Administration page saying:

    We apologize for the inconvenience, but we've made OneDrive and sites read-only while we do some maintenance.

    This is an on-premise farm and we have no connection to One Drive. I thought it's because the farm is in "maintenance mode" but we checked through PowerShell and it wasn't. Can anybody help please? Any help is highly appreciated.

    Thank you
