Upgrading from 4.1 to 4.5 server fails RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just attempted to upgrade our 4.1 management server to 4.5 (all clients have been upgraded) and ran into the following problem:

    http://rickardandersson.com/drop/app-v_upgrade.png

    \\vsrv012\SoftGridContent is the old content dir. The vsrv012 server has since been "decommissioned". The content directory is now local to the server in C:\SoftGrid\Content. I relocated the directory per Microsoft's instructions a long time ago and all has been well since.

    When I couldn't get the upgrade to continue, I decided to have a quick look in the SoftGrid database and I did find one mention of the old path (in root_path field of the SERVERS table). I changed it and tried the upgrade again, but no change.

    Anyone?

    PS. I did first run into this problem , but I doubt it's related.

    Cheers,
    Rickard

  • CU1. I "solved it" by starting with a fresh database and re-imported all applications.

  • Hello,

    Is that path somewhere in the registry?

  • No. I did find it before, but it was a in an MRU list (not related).

  • Hello,

    Well, not sure if it matters, however I also perfomed a move and the new directory wasn't utilized until I specifed the last slash in the search-path.

    So:
    c:\softgrid\content
    No go...
    and c:\softgrid\content\
    Go...

    SOFTGRID_CONTENT_DIR was the key that I had to change, now what kinda bothered me is that the old directory was saved somewhere and I never figured out where...
    However, since it has been working for a long time I doubt that this is your issue.

  • I gave up and started up the old vsrv012 server just to please the installer. This worked until I ran into error 25119 .

  • Hello,

    Are you using 4.5 RTM or CU1?
