  • Hi Santosh,


    This issue occurs when the content database is configured as read-only. And when you try to do the following type of operation or action, you may receive the error:

    1.       You try to create a new document.

    2.       You try to create a new picture library.

    3.       You try to create a new list. For example, you create a new announcement list, a new task list, a new survey, or a new discussion.

    Here are a KB article about this problem, you can get detailed information about this issue:



    Hope this could help you.
