SQL remote blob storage must be installed on each web front end server and on the content database before it may be used.


While enabling Remote Blob Storage on SharePoint servers, we need to run these PowerShell commands to enable RBS.

$cdb = Get-SPContentDatabase WSS_Content_5000  #Set you database name
$rbss = $cdb.RemoteBlobStorageSettings
$rbss.Installed()
$rbss.Enable()
$rbss.SetActiveProviderName($rbss.GetProviderNames()[0])


When you run this line $rbss.Enable(), sometimes we get error and it says, “SQL remote blob storage must be installed on each web front end server and on the content database before it may be used.


To resolve this problem, we need to restart all servers in the Farm. After restarting, it will work like a charm.
