Operations started by an earlier run of the Farm Configuration Wizard are still in progress

Did the configuration wizard not complete properly? And now you are getting the following error when you’re running the Farm Configuration Wizard

“Operations started by an earlier run of the Farm Configuration Wizard are still in progress. You must wait for those operations to complete before running the wizard again. You can monitor the status of these operations by looking at the “Farm Configuration Wizard” timer job on the Timer Job Status page in the Monitoring section of Central Administration.”

To get rid of the error message you will need to delete the Job Definition for the Farm Configuration Wizard.

Go to – Central Administration > Monitoring > Job Definitions

Then find Farm Configuration Wizard. Once you click on the job definition you’ll see the Edit Timer Job screen where you will click on Delete

After you delete the job definition for the Farm Configuration Wizard you can now go the wizard page and you should see the following farm configuration wizard.
