TF400030 – [Solved] – The local data store is currently in use by another operation – TFS 2012

Tags: workspace

Introduction

In this very short post, we are going to briefly discuss a couple of common errors encountered in TFS 2012 when using local workspaces, running multiple instances of Visual Studio 2012, and having a large codebase.

Problem Description

If you are using TFS 2012 (including TFS 2012 Express) you may encounter one of the following errors:

  • TF400017 – The workspace properties table for the local workspace [name] could not be opened.
  • TF400030 – The local data store is currently in use by another operation. Please wait and then try your operation again. If this error persists, restart the application.

Pay particular attention to the highlighted word, local. These errors generally occur when you have a local workspace.

I was able to resolve this problem on my development machine by simply making sure that my workspace location was set to Server. Though this is the standard configuration we utilize internally, for some reason I had erroneously set my new workspace and forgotten to change its location. :(

To ensure your workspace is a Server workspace, open your Team Explorer, select Source Control Explorer, then select your workspace and make sure that the location is set as shown below:

TFS 2012 - TF400030, TF400017

Once you set the workspace location to Server, the poor performance and unpredictability should disappear! Happy coding!
