When processing messages from the main queue and satellite queues simultaneously, an InvalidOperationException can be thrown in the main pipeline.

System.InvalidOperationException: Collection was modified; enumeration operation may not execute.
   at System.ThrowHelper.ThrowInvalidOperationException(ExceptionResource resource)
   at System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary`2.Enumerator.MoveNext()
   at NServiceBus.Extensibility.ContextBag.Merge(ContextBag context)
   at NServiceBus.MainPipelineExecutor.<Invoke>d__1.MoveNext()
--- End of stack trace from previous location where exception was thrown ---
   at System.Runtime.ExceptionServices.ExceptionDispatchInfo.Throw()
   at System.Runtime.CompilerServices.TaskAwaiter.HandleNonSuccessAndDebuggerNotification(Task task)

This can occur when a satellite message is processed at the same time as a main queue message because the transport is sharing a ContextBag instance.

Who's affected

  • Any user with an endpoint that is processing messages on the main queue and a satellite can potentially be affected.


  • Log entries are seen saying a message is being retried because of the following exception: System.InvalidOperationException: Collection was modified; enumeration operation may not execute.
