Upgrade from SQL2008R2 (Standard) to SQL 2012 RC0 - SkuPublicConfigObject : ValidateSkuMatrix did not find a match in sku matrix

    Question

  • Hi,

    I'm trying to test an Upgrade on a SQL2008R2 (Standard Edition) to the new  SQL 2012 RC0, but I received an failure on the setup configuration checks :

    FeatureUpgradeMatrixCheck Checks whether the specified feature meets SQL Server 2012 RC0 upgrade Failed The specified edition upgrade is not supported. For information about

    In the Details.txt I found following:

    (24) 2012-02-28 09:02:37 Slp: Initializing rule      : SQL Server 2012 RC0 Feature Upgrade
    (24) 2012-02-28 09:02:37 Slp: Rule is will be executed  : True
    (24) 2012-02-28 09:02:37 Slp: Init rule target object: Microsoft.SqlServer.Configuration.SetupExtension.SkuUpgradeRule

    (24) 2012-02-28 09:02:37 Slp: Rule evaluation done   : Failed

    On the Books Online I found the following supported scenarios:

    SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1 Standard

    Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Release Candidate 0 (RC 0) Enterprise

    Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Release Candidate 0 (RC 0) Business Intelligence

    Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Release Candidate 0 (RC 0) Standard

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143393(v=sql.110).aspx

    Has anybody an Idea how to solve this? In Connect I found the following post:
    https://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer/feedback/details/681070/rule-sql-server-denali-ctp3-feature-upgrade-failed

    How can I get such an upgrade PID?

    Thank you

    Matthias

  • Hi,

    if it is indeed unsupported, then the Books Online are wrong:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143393(v=sql.110).aspx

    Under this link it is specified as an supported Upgrade Path!

    regards

  • Do do you have a licence key?  Nope, so upgrading is not supported.

    You also cannot upgrade a SQL Server instance to SQL Server 2012 RC0 Evaluation Edition.

    Please read http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143393(v=sql.110).aspx

  • Is it the same scenario SQL 2008 R2 --> SQl 2012 RTM?

    It always end up with the error "rule sql server 2012 feature upgrade failed"

  • same problem upgrading from SQL 2008 R2 Dev edition... FeatureUpgradeMatrixCheck failed
    Wednesday, March 28, 2012 7:10 PM
  • same problem upgrading from SQL 2008 R2 Dev edition... FeatureUpgradeMatrixCheck failed

    That's because you can't upgrade to the Evaluation Edition

  • I am having a similar error

     Rule

    "SQL Server 2012 Feature Upgrade" failed.
    The specified edition upgrade is not supported.

    Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 (RTM) - 10.50.1600.1 (X64)   Apr  2 2010 15:48:46   Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation  Developer Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 6.1 <X64> (Build 7601: Service Pack 1) 

    Does that mean -  I can't upgrade SQL Server 2008 R2 (RTM)  X64 Developer to SQL 2012 RTM X64 Developer ?

  • I did check.  My upgrade in supported upgrade scenarios.  What can I do now ?  Is there way to get more information about this error ?

  • SQL Server 2012 RC0 is not the same as SQL Server 2012 RTM.  You cannot upgrade an existing version of SQL Server to SQL Server 2012 RC0

  • Perhaps, I should have started another thread. But I am talking about SQL Server 2012 RTM , and the question you answered previously in this thread also related to RTM ( that's why I navigated here from Google ).
    Thursday, April 12, 2012 12:42 AM
  • The previous RTM reference was for the Evaluation Edition of 2012, not the Developer Edition.
