I can't update the database using Entity Framework Core

asp.net-core entity-framework-core sql-server


I have an ASP.NET Core application that use SQL Server and EF Core. It contains two tables. I successfully created an Entity Framework Core migration and updated the database with it for the first table called Pies.

Then after I added another table called Feedbacks, I created a second migration.

However, when I attempt to update the database, it fails and I get this error:

Error Number:2714,State:6,Class:16
There is already an object named 'Pies' in the database.

Here is the DbContext class:

public class AppDbContext : DbContext
    public AppDbContext(DbContextOptions<AppDbContext> options) : base(options)

    public DbSet<Pie> Pies { get; set; }
    public DbSet<Feedback> Feedbacks { get; set; }

Since you have messed up the record history of EF Core migrations by deleting a migration file and your snapshot is tainted as well because you re-ran the migrations after deleting one.

Here are the steps you should take:

  1. Delete all remaining migrations
  2. Delete the database
  3. Create a new initial migration
  4. Create a new database.

In the future to avoid these error's use a version control system like git. And before creating any migrations commit. Note you will need to remove the incorrectly applied migration to your database from the _EfMigrations table in your database, since git doesn't version control your database.
