MSDN Upgrade FIM2010R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    I have problems with upgrade my development environment (MSDN product version) from FIM 2010 to FIM 2010R2 (Service and portal). The upgrade fails. I have tried to use the hotfix rollup package (build 4.0.3617.2) before the upgrade to FIM 2010R2 and also this upgrade fails.

    I't looks like the uppgrade installer program does not recognize the MSDN product version as a valid product version, and this stops the upgrade.

    Is there anyone that have had this problem and have a solution to it?

    /Mikael

  • Hi There,

    There is a mention of this problem in the release notes for FIM 2010 R2 found here http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh322889(v=ws.10).aspx#pre_install

    The text in the "Pre-Installation and Upgrade" section of the document has this paragraph.

    FIM Synchronization Service: Users who installed FIM 2010 RTM from the MSDN website are un-able to upgrade the Synchronization Service.
    If you have deployed FIM 2010 RTM from the MSDN website an in-place upgrade is not supported for the Synchronization Service.  However, the database can be preserved and used in FIM 2010 R2 RTM.  To do this, you must uninstall the FIM 2010 RTM Synchronization Service and then install FIM 2010 R2 RTM using the existing database.  The uninstall and then subsequent install of FIM 2010 R2 is supported.  The FIM Service and Portal can then be upgraded using the normal method.  This only affects users who have installed FIM 2010 RTM from MSDN and only the Synchronization Service.  This is a known issue.

    Hope this helps.
