2013 Convertto-SPProjectDatabase RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Folks,

    I was attempting to bring an existing PWA instance into 2013 (from 2010) When using this command:Convertto-SPProjectDatabase I got the follwoign error: "locale id is not installed onthe current farm". (I am using using locale 2057)

    Interestingly the new 2013 (single DB) has been created (but no tables in it). When I try to rerun the powerhshell I get the error:

    "ConvertTo-SPProjectDatabase : Database validation failed. Reason: DatabaseInUse.
    At line:1 char:1"

    Thanks for any advice

  • Try dismounting and mounting database to force it to unlock. 

    Check out my block that goes into details about migration.

    I am writting some of the blog, because I found some places where it may fail, like in your case.
